I am about 95% sure I will be returning it tomorrow, and give Denon a try instead. It's more money, but it appears the menus are better. I wonder if the phone apps only work with Apple products since it's all I see on their website.
I bought one of these, and I am doing whole house sound and 2 theaters and two other " media centers" if you will and was looking around for the cheapest and easiest way to do this. Im really shocked they don't make an Airplay tuner for say $99 but I will get to my point.
I went to Bestbuy and picked up a 1122 and a 1022 open box and hooked these up and could stream effortlessly from my iTunes on my Mac using Airplay or AppleTV via my iPhone5 using remote. I could never get the silly Pioneer Apps to connect, I always got error messages. You donts need the apps.....what you need is iRule ( I think it does android) I can control EVERY aspect of these receivers and add what buttons are important, and which aren't.
Tonight I streamed Abraham Lincoln Vampire Killer to my Main Theater from a Macbook 2 floors away and on the opposite side of the house without one glitch.........pristine picture and amazing sound all using my iPhone. Check into iRule for your android they have a 14 day free trial, tutorials and Pioneer uses Port 23 just so you know. If you add your Pioneer to your router as a static IP it will be more reliable.......I used an Apple Airport Extreme but changing to a Time Capsule for the 2 Terabyte HD capabilities
Both Pioneers worked flawlessly
If you want to try irule for your android, when it comes to the part to add devices just choose receivers.then Pioneer and do the Zone1, and 2 and there was another choice as well........follow the tutorials and make a simple one for say Power/ Volume/ input...when you actually do the sync this is where you add the IP address and port 23 on your ANDROID and add the 3 Gateways on your Android. Once you get this figured out the sky's the limit and it's so easyEdited by Mark P - 10/24/12 at 11:35pm
