Yamaha Aventage Remote

Yamaha Aventage Remote


Control your Yamaha Aventage Receiver with this android application (also works with RX-V867). Disappointed with Yamaha's android offering, (though I am obviously biased) I find this far easier to use. Advantages include -- easier to control and use multiple zones, volume slider bar, play information & status combined on once screen, stereo presets report HD-radio station name, ability to hide unused sound modes and input sources, ability to set the "sleep" mode, a media interface screen that updates correctly, and does not use all of the confusing icons.

IF THE PROGRAM CRASHED ON LAUNCH try going into settings/applications and clearing the application's data.

NOTE: empirical testing suggests that the webserver contained in Yamaha's latest receivers have a very low capacity. The 'responsiveness' of this app goes way up if no desktop browsers are simultaneously querying the receiver.

This application is a re-write of RainShadow's earlier RX-V867 offering, this time with a slightly prettier user interface. Current limitations include -- does not auto detect receiver on network (you have to configure the receiver's IP address), controls SIRIUS_IR but not XM and SIRIUS input sources, no option yet to choose a "scene".
If you are unhappy with the purchase, I am more than happy to issue a refund. Feedback welcome.

Less functions, runs slower than Yamaha remote app This app offers less features than the free Yamaha remote app (doesn't stream from Android device, doesn't support album art). The user-interface has small elements that are hard to press and are slow to respond. Not sure what the value-add is supposed to be over the free Yamaha remote app. Also not sure it is the best idea to brand a for-profit third-party app with the Yamaha logo.
