Worked on initial setup, then never again

This app is terrible. When I first got my ATS2090 sound bar and downloaded the app, it worked just as expected. I stopped using the app for that day and when I tried to use it again it told me “No Sound Bar Found :(.” I went through the setup again, turned my sound bar on and off, in plugged it, found out how to do a reset — zero success. It’s a shame because it was perfect the first day, working just as I needed to but seems like it’ll never connect again. Terrible. Wish I could give it 0 stars.

It hooked up without any setting up

Maybe because I already connected my Samsung phone before my iPad. I had a hard time connecting my cell until I read someone's comment about unplugging the sound bar wait and plug back in. Have your device ready cause as soon as you plug it in, you'll see the Net light flash on the sound bar. That's when I pressed connect on my cell and it WORKED.
Went to install this app with my iPad and it already recognized it and I didn't have to go through any strips to set it up.

Disconnection problems? IDK. I'll have to give it time and see if it continues to work

Great app

Great app just need to get that first sound at update. This app is terrible until you update the firmware on the soundbar through the app. Yamaha has been pushing lots of firmware updates recently. All this is great, and my speaker gets better and better with every update. You can now change to 3D audio and change to the game, Studio, and or movie mode. I love the new features.
