If you have problems connecting the app to your AVR please feel free to email me.
This is the Pro version. Please try the Free version first, to see if it works for you before buying this app.
Email feedback, questions or suggestions for new features are very welcome. This app is still being developed, so the addition of new features is possible.
Note for the EU model AVRs:
The 'Power On' function requires Network Standby to be enabled in the AV Receiver's Network Settings. This feature is not available on EU models – but currently Sony's Audio Control API allows the enabling of it on EU model STR-DN1080 receivers. This app merely uses the API provided by Sony.
Enable Network Standby at your own risk as it uses A LOT MORE power on standby (more than 30 watts, which is more than EU regulations allow) and maybe more heat. There is no guarantee that this ability will remain in future firmware updates.
* Functions differ depending on the model of your receiver.
