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.

Tick tock, Ken.

Chris, that sounds interesting. Does Roomie send signals to the receiver via the network connection?

It will control the receiver for streaming from DLNA sources, but it does not stream the iDevice's contents to the receiver.

The remote functions are pretty basic, but it does look like it's probably faster for changing the center and sub levels than using the regular remote.

Careful. You're going to put Mark out of business, or worse yet, force him to be useful again.

I cannot exactly talk with the ISO incorporation. But, I did lately buy a new processor; a Marantz AV 8801 and I really like it a lot. The installation was the most convenient of any receiver/processor I have ever possessed. Also, there is a lot of manages as well.

Michael,

An AV8801 from Marantz as a preamp/processor is the machine of my dream ! Tell us more about it if you don't mind !
