Ok, so I had issues with iControlAV 2012, and iControlAV5 (that supports new and old models) controlling my SC-67, and I was getting all sorts of errors and nothing I tried worked. finally I found this solution posted on What Hifi, that worked for me!
Turn on the Pioneer receiver. Make sure that there is an ethernet cable connected between the Wi-Fi router and the receiver. Make sure there is no firewall preventing access. Unplug power to the router, then turn power off to the receiver and lastly get out of the iControlAV application. Plug in power to the router and wait a minute, then turn on the receiver and wait 20 seconds and lastly run the iControlAV application. Make sure that the receiver can see the Wi-Fi router, to check network settings in the receiver go into the "Home Menu", "System Setup" then Network Setup."
I turned POWER off to receiver (not just turn off/standby), turned router off, then turned router on, turned Firewall OFF, then turned power back to the Receiver... it then worked PERFECTLY on both iControlAV 2012, and iControlAV 5. I then went back to my router (Asus N66), and turned Firewall back ON, and it's still working fine. So, turning Firewall On/Off may not be required in all cases.
Hope this helps, it was driving me nuts!
