New Features in 1.5.0:
iTunes Control: Just turn on "Allow iTunes Audio Control" in iTunes to pair iTunes with Roomie for full auto-discovery and control of iTunes including all the normal play functionality, position scrubbing, volume, and more. (Beta Note: This feature may be a separate in-app purchase at release time, but is fully enabled for beta.)
TiVo Premiere Integration: Significant new integration for TiVo has been added including progress displays for live and recorded shows, status for tuners, the ability to scrub to exact positions in recorded content, and much more! This new control method is compatible with US Premiere models. The previous control method is used for all other TiVo models.
Receiver Music Feedback: Feedback for many sources such as iPods, Pandora, Rhapsody, HD Radio, and more are now displayed with song and other feedback integrated into the Virtual Remote for most recent Yamaha, Denon, and Pioneer receivers.
Receiver Dynamic Remotes: Virtual Remotes now adjust commands automatically based on input. Commands only available in a particular input such as an iPod Play command are automatically upgraded to the main play button when the input is set to iPod.
(Beta Note: The above 2 features currently work for Yamaha 2010+, all Pioneer and Denon receivers (feedback quantity decreases the further back you go) and is being adapted for Onkyo.)
Wake-on-LAN: Compatible devices such as Mac desktops, some Panasonic 2012 TVs, and many others can now be turned on using special Wake-on-LAN signals in any command sequence.
See the Roomie website for supported models.
Guide Scrolling: Vertical speed has been significantly increased. The guide can also now be smoothly scrolled side to side across different dayparts and days.
Guide Index: New user interface for guide indexing allows faster movement among channels.
Guide Opening: New Guide settings allow explicit specification per-Activity whether the Guide should be opened with the Activity.
Yamaha Pre-2008 Explicit Volume: Older Yamaha receivers can now explicitly set volume via the slider.
Pioneer Keyboard Support: Keyboard is now provided for Pioneer receivers.
Top to bottom review of field issues has significantly reduced the chance of errors in this version.
Fixed deletion of devices when using input switching that could incorrectly assign some commands to the wrong device.
Fixed elusive issue that would cause device information to be out of date for connections leading to several different issues that were all hard to track down.
Optimizations to Virtual Remote opening other areas resulting in generally faster operations.
Removed iOS 4 support per prior announcement at 1.4 release. Roomie now requires iOS 5.
