Hi everyone. Just installed this receiver and LOVING it. I am having an issue, though, with something that should be simple: AirPlay
On my iPad (3rd gen), any time I play music in the Music app there is no AirPlay button. I have the receiver on and in Server mode, and both are on the same network.
I installed the Yamaha app, and I can control the receiver from it and stream music on my iPad from the app to the receiver.
However, I thought the benefit of AirPlay was to be able to do that not from a 3rd party app but from within Apple's applications themselves.
Has anyone else had trouble doing this? Am I perhaps mistaken in thinking that AirPlay should work with the receiver in a first party app? (meaning maybe AirPlay in the Music app is intended to work solely with the Apple TV?)
Thank you in advance for your help. This topic saved me on the component upscaling through HDMI issue for my Wii, which was driving me bonkers. Still incredible that Yamaha cut corners by not including upscaling for 480p, but I guess you can't have everything.
Additional but not imperative question: The iPad in the above question is actually my dad's. I use an Asus Transformer tablet. My entire music library is stored in Google Music and I stream it through the Google Music app rather than keeping it on any of my devices. Unfortunately, it seems that there is no way to stream music from my tablet that is being streamed to my tablet; I MUST have the file on my tablet in order for it to be recognized by the receiver, even in USB mode. Is there any way to jerry rig this setup as to let me stream from Google Music to my tablet, and from my tablet to the receiver?
