  • Works for what I need Dec 9, 2017

    By S.kwat
    Several reviewers either based their comments off an older version or couldn’t figure out how to use it. As soon as I got on the same network as my receiver (NR656) I saw it and connected. I was able to enable and disable each zone independently, set the input, and control volume to each. That’s really all I want to do so haven’t explored further. They did try to make the interface modern and it complicated things a bit, I would have preferred simple and clean, but that’s the norm these days... all the functions I need are there and work.

  • Works For Me Mar 26, 2018

    By MC Mega Cat
    I already have a universal remote that does what I need and for basic functions I use Alexa... but when it came to listening to my music library — which is on a usb hard drive — it took way too long to get to where I needed. This app eliminated any and all difficulty. The app recognized my receiver immediately, and within a few button presses I’m listening to the song I want. What used to take 3-4 minutes (sometimes longer as I have around 1000 different artists on my HD, some are full discographies) now takes about 30 seconds.

    The app connects to my NR787 without issue. So far pretty good. I'm new to this app but I really wish the listening modes were shown in a list rather than having to repeatedly press the listening mode buttons to scroll through the options.

  • Works pretty good, once you figure it out! May 9, 2018

    By Ibkoran
    Every app has learning curve, but once you figure it out, the question is, does it actually do want you want to control the device. Happily this app works pretty good. With one exception, you can control just about every important parameter on each zone, including tone and some speaker tweaking. The one exception is the inability to activate the sleep timer. That’s unfortunate, since Onkyo buries the sleep timer deep in the main menu and you need to have the TV on to use it! Otherwise, it’s a pretty good app, certainly worth downloading and using.

  • Works for TXRZ810 Surround System Jun 19, 2020

    By RBJ54
    I was surprised to find this app still supported. It has worked for me since 2016, when I first got my receiver. I bought the Harmony Elite remote, and use that for controlling my home theater on average. However, lately I’ve been using the USB function to play Apple Lossless and FLAC files on the TXRZ810, but the Harmony Elite wouldn’t allow shuffling of files on USB. Luckily, the Onkyo app allows shuffling. Now how cool is that. Not sure why the majority here hate this app, but it’s second only to the Harmony Elite in my book, and is first for shuffling USB files.

  • Where is the volume control? Nov 22, 2019

    By Datbates
    Uh, the most important reason for this app and I can’t find it. Just lay out the app like the remote. How hard can this be? People know how to use a remote. Why make the app rocket science? It should have quick access to the functions of the remote and a menu that matches the settings on the unit. Some developer has forgotten the first rules of user interface design. What does the user want, not what looks snazzy. Edited: finally found out you have to be on the selected input to have the volume control show up. At least I know how to make it work for me, but everything I said above still stands. I gave you back one additional star because the app can (eventually) do what you want.

  • Searching...Searching...Searching... Jun 11, 2019

    By JerseyBob54
    This app worked really good for about 9 mo starting mid 2018. When I used it, it always found my TX-RZ620 within a few seconds. Starting a few months ago, it now only finds the receiver about 5% of the time. I even have my router set up to give the receiver the same IP address each time, and I search using that specific address using this app, and it still will not find out. Onkyo’s response is to power cycle the receiver and then power cycle the router. Seriously? What’s the point of having a remote app if you have to walk around the house pulling power cords in and out? I’m really tired of watching the spinning wheel and seeing “Searching” whenever I use this app. The RZ-620 is my second Onkyo receiver. I have found both to be good to very good A/V receivers but with dismal performance when it comes to networking. C’mon Onkyo, you can do so much better!!!

    I've got four other brands of WiFi speakers, and this is without a doubt the worst app for setup and control. I expected more from Onkyo, they definitely should have outsourced the network app. WiFi simply won't set up, and every time I try to update over LAN, device settings are lost and I have to do setup all over. Terrible.

    I would strongly suggest not buying any Onkyo product because there apps are Very unreliable and Onkyo does not seem to care or try and solve any of there issues. Stay away from Onkyo! chrome cast works about 50% of the time on a good day so I don't even bother with it anymore. Horrible and frustrating.

    This app used to work great.. Chromecast doesn't work anymore and the "demo on" comes on every time I use it and I have to turn it off to get it working.. It's a shame as it used to work awesome. I've switched back to using a remote Chromecast as it's fool proof.

    Works great, has all the basic bass, treble etc. settings you need, and it has a cool/sleek look.
  • They have fixed a big bug Feb 8, 2019

    By helloiammacintosh
    Finally. They have the network connectivity right. The old app had huge latency with a 5 second delay before the receiver responded. The new app performs substantially better. They touched up the interface and made it slightly more refined. The Menu has been reorganized. Please add the MODE button the e-remote controller. I dislike finding my remote to make the mini player active.

    Buggy at first and still a few glitches but overall okay. Can't wait for all bugs to be fixed and more sound and room controls.
  • Gets the job done Nov 6, 2019

    By King Eider
    Works pretty well. I can change volume, change inputs (see below), and control playback. Strange behavior: Deezer and Tidal can be controlled via this app as stated. But I cannot enter into these services via the app. Instead I must use the infrared control equivalent remote functionality and navigate via the menu displayed on a TV. After this has been done, this app can control them just like other streaming services.

  • Wont Allow Bluetooth to Work Jun 29, 2020

    By Onkyo Tx-8260 user
    I am able to connect to Bluetooth and it shows it by my phone name, but no sound. I’ve had this problem before and updated the Onkyo receiver. It continues to happen and there is no update, phone is up to date and I end on the phone for hours with NO fix. Also the app stops working and there is no reason UPDATE - after reloading, updating phone, nothing worked Until - I unplugged my Onkyo for 2 minutes and then replugged in and everything works - I’d give more stars if it was more stable

  • Works, but glitchy May 10, 2019

    By AirCon2006
    Syncs well with the receiver. Good for controlling different zones and sound levels. However it is very temperamental. If I have an album or playlist playing and try to switch songs it will typically glitch with an error message; requiring to force close the app to resolve the issue. Hopefully the support team will work on updating the app to make it less glitchy. I have the TX-RZ820 receiver. App running through the iPhone X with latest iOS.

  • Won’t consistently connect to TX-RZ30 Receiver Jan 5, 2020

    By bbrash12
    I have to reboot my cable modem/router for the App to see the receiver 1/2 of the time. It works great whenever it works. I have the latest firmware and network standby on. The receiver doesn’t drop WiFi. I have zero problem with any other WiFi devices. I have bought 2 receivers for a planned 3 zones each in my house and the purpose was to use the app to integrate it all with the app. Thinking about going with another brand. Don’t want to have to reboot modems just to listen to music..Onkyo can do better. I hope that they don’t abandon their customers by ignoring this issue.

    It would be great if I didn't have to search for my receiver every 3rd day and resign into things like my Amazon music. When it works it's great but the big point is when it works

    Every couple of days it can't find my receiver. Have to then delete and reinstall app to get it to work again! Stupid!

    Disappointing Complex navigation simply to set the volume (you have to navigate 4 clicks to even adjust volume) , no feedback on which FM RDS station is tuned, complex preset for internet radio and the tuner does not even remember the last internet station played. That is my first and last Onkyo device i bought.

  • WORST! So much easier to just walk to the receiver. Mar 30, 2018

    By James in Maine
    Let’s think for a moment about what you want to do with a remote app and a receiver with two zones. Change the volume quickly and easily comes to mind. So bad. Just so bad. Why do I need to click so many times? First I have to figure out which of the indecipherable little icons takes me to the place where I can choose the zone. Then I have to select a zone, and then click to get out to the place where see what is playing, then, FINALLY, I can change the volume. God forbid if I then need to turn down the other zone. Seriously, how odd would be to just have one screen with the volume controls for both zones or, a master volume control? I would give this app negative stars but that doesn’t seem to be an option.
