Ratings and Reviews
Where is the volume control?
Uh, the most important reason for this app and I can’t find it. Just lay out the app like the remote. How hard can this be? People know how to use a remote. Why make the app rocket science? It should have quick access to the functions of the remote and a menu that matches the settings on the unit. Some developer has forgotten the first rules of user interface design. What does the user want, not what looks snazzy.
Edited: finally found out you have to be on the selected input to have the volume control show up. At least I know how to make it work for me, but everything I said above still stands. I gave you back one additional star because the app can (eventually) do what you want.
Still learning the nuances of the system.
I’ve had issues with this app detecting my two receivers from my iOS devices. I think I made the mistake of putting the receivers on the 5G WIFI instead of 2.4G. With that change things are working better. For a free app the feature set is fine for my devices - Pandora or media streaming from a Synology NAS media server. One other irritation with Onkyo receivers is that they shouldn’t offer network updates as an option if they are only supported over Ethernet and not WIFI, which is how I have them networked. I have an Ethernet adapter that has helped me several times with recovering from this issue. Again, once I have my ducks lined up - it is a decent system. Zone 2 is my happy place.
A Frustrating App
Frustrating. I dread opening this app. I wish my TX-RZ830 allowed me to dump this trash and use the newer remote app.
Slow. Selection of features takes 10-15 seconds per selection. Don’t select anything more than once or you’ll be watching a replay of the last 15seconds of your life through the eyes of a spasmatic tweaker.
Unreliable. Every 4th or 5th login requires reset of my network and power cycle of the receiver to allow recognition of the app and the receiver. The receiver can connect independently to streaming channels, but does not allow connection through the app when the issue occurs.
Disappointing. When I coughed up the cash for this receiver I thought I was getting the latest greatest technology for linking a multi-room stereo receiver to streaming services. Boy was I wrong. This is early 2010’s tech at best. Am I just supposed to be enamored by the fact that my stereo and phone can talk, while I struggle to keep my excitement contained? Come on.
I think many issues could be resolved by bringing in compatibility of the TX-RZ830 with the “3” app.
I hope this happens soon!
In the meantime, embrace the pain. It will make you a stronger person, and you too may develop a passion for writing wordy reviews of obscure electronic devices on the internets that no one will read.
