I have a Pioneer SC-55( a couple of years old). I have an Apple Base Station near my gear so I run a LAN cable to it and another LAN cable to my Pioneer Blu Ray player.
The Pioneer apps are cool but did not seem very stable and I needed a different Pioneer App for both the receiver and the blu ray player. That drove me nuts.
I spent the money on an app called Roomie. I think it was 30 bucks. I love that app. I can configure it just about any way I want. Running those devices from my iPad mini is heaven. The same app on my iPhone was only ok.
I can't way for the day when I have a compatible TV.
