So, if there are still any Oremote users out there, can you please tell me whether Oremote is still a good app, or are there better ones out there? Also, what aspects of Oremote are now broken and will they be fixed soon? Is this a matter of the latest iOS breaking something in Oremote?
I can't say how good the released version currently is, as I am using beta versions. But the developer is constantly updating, refreshing this App, and tweaking it to add new features. He tries to keep legacy devices going too, and is always ready with new IOS fixes when Apple change stuff around.
It works great with the 809, limited by Onkyo in a couple of areas. But if there is a better App let me know.
Features such as being able to reduce the Listening Modes to the few useful, and being able to access the settings such as Resolution, picture mode etc much quicker than with remote. Also MultEQ, Dynamic Eq, too.
It's not perfect, but the developer is open to ideas (eg double clicking a Squeezebox Source now launches iPeng App), and is looking to integrate Oppo BR controls too.
For the others wanting feedback about this amp, the prices you can get it for are ridiculously low. If you have a system to get the best out of XT32, maybe get the 818 if your budget goes that far. But I am more than happy with my purchase, very reliable, never gets hot.
