Is there another music software other than iTunes to "push" the music to the Receiver?
Actually, what I am doing now is pushing FROM my PC to the Apple Airport Express which in turn is connected to the Receiver. Thus, the Airport is a middle man.
Is there some other piece of hardware to replace the Airport if the Receiver cant be pushed to?
Sorry, I am not familiar with the Onkyo TX-NR807, I have the Onkyo PR-SC5508P audio/video processor which works quite well with Oremote (via a iPad). The only real down side to using the 5508 as a music media player is the muting relay clicking between each song. When I use my Panasonic DMP-BDT220 as a music media player there is no muting problem. The down side, must have a monitor on to see playlist, selection, etc. The Panasonic iPad app for this model is just transport control. I am waiting to see how well the new Popcorn Hour A-400 performs, if it works well I may procure one. My media server (video, photo & music) is a Synology DS212j (NAS).
Can not help with the rest.
Forgot to add: check in the Receivers, AMPs, and Processors
section to see if anyone can help with the 807. See the post below for one opinion on the 807. For me the ideal media player will be one that can play my various media files with out issues and can be fully controlled by my iPad, it appears the coming Popcorn Hour A-400
my be that device.Edited by Wendell R. Breland - 10/5/12 at 5:25am
