Could be...
by Ricco S on 2020/06/01 20:25
a great app, but it crashes consisitently upon opening. The very few times it doesn't, I really enjoy the functionality and user interface. Too bad the app is nearly unusable due to it's crashing. Robert (Developer): are you addressing this? If not I will request a refund.

So happy to find this app. Perfect!
TX-1009 functionality dropping
by MoovinTarget on 2020/05/08 21:36
The earlier releases allowed more zone 2 & 3 control. I can no longer use equalizer, sound mode, and other features on zone 2. I can no longer change the Net application in zone 2. I cannot select stations in Pandora and slacker in zone 2. I must intermittently browse to Receiver IP address to keep remote connected to receiver after running other phone apps.
App crashes immediately
by Jm458697 on 2020/05/03 16:09
When I open the app and select the receiver the program immediately crashes.
Unless Your Receiver is 3+ Years, Don’t Bother
by AtlantaGraphic on 2020/02/10 02:24
Used to be a great app, but it won’t with receivers released after it’s last update. The app will just crash once it detects a receiver doesn’t recognize
No longer works
by Arbym313 on 2020/01/05 13:58
I used to love this app. I upgraded my receiver to TX-NR686 and the app no longer works. Always crashes on receiver connection. Don’t waste your time or money until there are updates.
No Good
by jdbalto on 2019/07/13 17:37
What a waste of money , the app keeps crashing. doesn't stay open long enough to connect my receiver. I want my money back !!!!!!
Useless
by robk64r on 2019/05/27 00:20
Connects to my receiver, and that’s where the fun both begins and ends.
Fantastic!
by The googoomuk on 2019/02/25 22:05
So much better I deleted the Onkyo factory app! Finally I can easily control zone source and volume from anywhere around my home!
Crash crash crash
by TalkenRain on 2019/02/12 16:17
This use to work great but somewhere along iOS updates and/or hardware updates, it stopped working. I see this app has not been updated in a while. I suspect that has something to do with it no longer working. Bottom line, it use to be the best but now it’s useless!!!

Dont work with 787?
by Rogerio.Coelho on 2019/02/03 04:36
In oldies models ok. The best. But dont work with new models; 787
Yes, best so far
by S-curvy on 2019/02/01 19:14
For years, I have resisted this app because it is the most expensive ($5) of the bunch and Onkytroller was satisfactory, the official Onkyo apps are nearly useless. Well O-Remote is much better. The functional controls, even the internet radio & DLNA, are all directly available from the main screen! It offers nearly all the functions available on the regular remote from anywhere you have the WiFi connection and it reconnects almost instantly when the phone screen no longer shows the app — the official app takes long seconds every single time the screen shuts off or is switched to any other app. Having the ability to control my AV deck and the different zones via my phone from anywhere within my WiFi range is awesome. UPDATE 01 Feb 2019: I figured out the disconnection issue, it’s not the app, it’s the AV deck losing its connection. Solution is to unplug the deck for 10 seconds and then restart it. It will re-initialize the Ethernet connection & and the App will work great again.
zone 2
by nacho6463 on 2019/01/10 03:27
I just bough the app but I can control Zone 2 only, Main zone is missing...
Doesn’t work
by Long time fans on 2018/11/07 01:45
App just closes.
Not working for me
by rvcta on 2018/10/01 02:25
I wish it would work, but every time I open it. The app comes up and disappears in 3 seconds, I have tried unplugging the av receiver with hopes that it would reset, but no luck yet. I will rate again but it dose not work at this time.
6 stars
by clintsomething on 2018/07/06 21:15
I had been having a lot of frustration with my TX-NR626 and the Onkyo remote very sporadically working. It would occasionally not find the receiver, and when it did, would rarely connect. I tried fixing my phone, internet, resetting the receiver, and nothing helped. Downloaded this app, problem solved. Thanks!!
Unusable
by Ginger Biggs on 2018/05/26 19:32
Looks and sounds like a great App but crashes within 5 seconds of opening every time. Onkyo’s own app seems to be working again. Only $5 but I might as well have wiped with it for all I’ve gotten out of this purchase.
Better than the original!
by JFC3 on 2018/04/21 21:54
Much more detailed and clearly designed than the Onkyo versions. Thanks for the updates! My 810 & 646 both work beautifully.
Great app
by Deckadent on 2018/04/12 22:50
I use this everyday, best app for me - ever.
Unstable to the Max
by Ernie is annoyed on 2018/02/04 01:13
I’d be happy to change this review if I’m doing something wrong with this app controlling my TX-NR676 on an IPhone 6 running iOS 11.2.5. Paid $4.99, downloaded app. Touch icon to open. Every time, app screen opens and then disappears immediately back to basic home screen. Wasted $4.99.
Nothing but trouble
by bbderek1 on 2017/12/22 03:44
Great when it works. But too much trouble with connection issues. Good riddance.
Terrible App Support
by Greg9999999999 on 2017/09/20 02:14
The developer can’t be bothered to answer support request. I have repeatedly submitted support request both through the app itself and the Facesmash site. The issue I’m having is periodic invalid IP errors on app launch and periodic app freezes. I have read that other users are having the same issues. If the developer has passed away and the app is in a zombie state, it would be nice to know. I would certainly send flowers if he has passed......,
Used to be awesome!
by Jrichkc on 2017/09/04 16:54
I have used this app for a few years. When I first got it I could even turn my receiver on via the app. I have lost function with each update and it is currently borderline useless. I would gladly pay again to have the original version I used three years ago. Any chance we can do that? I will happily change this to a five star review if it started working like it used to.
Awful App
by Hehehrjsjdgwjaj on 2017/08/15 04:47
Crashes after searching for receiver. Very disappointing.
Looks great but doesn't work for me.
by #%^*+???? on 2017/07/18 11:40
Interface looks great but after three days App wouldn't work on my IPad.
Best onkyo option
by Arasco85 on 2017/05/27 17:50
This app is awesome! I can control all 3 of my zone inputs, volumes and a lot more from this app. If you have a onkyo or integra receiver this is the way to go!!!! Don't waste your time with the onkyo or integra apps as you can't control multi zones.
Working Great Now
by Carnutzblues on 2017/04/17 15:02
Worked fine with my TX-NR737 for over a year, then had issues. Fixed now. The Onkyo version is a total joke. Any issues with software can usually be fixed with unplugging the receiver. Hope he continues to keep improving this app, as it works!
Awesome Onkyo Remote App
by The77Ronin on 2017/03/31 03:49
So convenient to have a remote app for your receiver on your phone, and one that works well, and has great function and features.
Thank you !!
by Steve243776643 on 2017/01/28 16:23
Thank you for continuing to update this app. Best so far !! I have been using this on my 2012 TX-NR509 and now my 2016 TZ-R800. Works great. Would be nice if there was a clean dashboard for controlling Spotify with volume controls on one screen. Currently using the app on a wall mounted IPad on my kitchen.
Best Onkyo App so Far
by E46333 on 2017/01/14 16:17
I have tried most of them and ORemote is my favorite. Recently Onkyo's own app has improved quite a bit. However ORemote gives a lot more control over you receiver which others don't. The interface is quite good. One feature I would request is highlight current setting in the pop up menu so you know what it's set to. Also it works with the 2016 RZ series. Otherwise very happy with app.
Unusable
by Jay51528 on 2017/01/10 00:51
I've had this app for years. It has always worked great. New update makes it unusable. Crashes immediately after opening
Crashes
by SalvatoreHoon on 2017/01/09 03:53
I've enjoyed this app since about 5 years. Latest update immediately crashes on iPhone 6 Plus running iOS 10.2.
App crashes
by Dave0417 on 2017/01/08 12:03
This update crashes as soon as it's started. Previous version worked perfectly, I have tried it on 2 different IPads.
New update gives the app a new life.
by Bellemead on 2017/01/07 15:51
Glad a much needed update has arrived. I'd given up hope but I am pleasantly surprised. A great app that now supports my receiver.
Best Onkyo Remote
by Bubbabubbabubba on 2017/01/06 21:42
I have been using this on my 818 since I purchased it. Remote works flawlessly, and makes it so nice during movies to make adjustments. Worth the $!!!
Buggy for 2 channel TX-8050
by Richard8655 on 2016/12/19 19:36
The iPad version continually hangs and freezes my TX-8050. I have to unplug and plug the receiver to reset it. I then have to avoid using this app and just use the Onkyo remote control. This app is pretty worthless, at least for the TX-8050 model. I complained to the developer many times, but he never resolves this issue.
Love this app!!
by Oilman400 on 2016/10/16 19:30
My home remote volume quit working so I decided look into app to control my receiver through the free ones that onkyo offers and couldn't get them to work? Could be my lack of ability? So as a last attempt I tried this app and was able to get it working through the manual input mode as the detection wasn't able to find my receiver. Once I got it working I couldn't believe how good it is!! For the price it's awesome and I definitely recommend these guys!
So far so good
by Gontrwr on 2016/08/14 15:07
Onkyo needs to take a lesson from this developer. I have owned the app for about 30 minutes and already 100% satisfied. Onkyo's app falls off about every 50 seconds. It will actually kick my phone off of my network. This app has zero faults so far. Way better layout. It makes my receiver do more than Onkyo's app. THRILLED SO FAR. WORTH THE MONEY.
Lack of indicated updates
by #EZMoney on 2016/07/30 16:41
Still waiting for the updates for 2015 models.
Best Onkyo app
by Cuzzin21 on 2016/07/24 15:53
Control your Onkyo receiver from any room. Listen to Pandora, favorite web radio station and your own music collection on your computer using the app.
Best App by Far!
by ChrGri217 on 2016/04/16 18:23
Thank you developers! Although it has a bug or two from time to time while trying to keep up with the various iOS platforms it is by far the best and most complete app for Onkyo receivers. Well worth the money.
Will Not connect with Xfinity modem
by Videoman 2069 on 2016/04/03 19:24
I recently updated my modem & now Oremote will no longer connect to it. I tried to change the IP Address manually through the app as well as in my iPhone settings with no luck. This app needs an update badly!
Os upset
by tactileman on 2016/03/26 23:09
See,s updating ios has made the app untrustworthy. Not it wont work at all.
Crashing
by keep the metal on 2016/03/21 21:53
Was working great & now keeps crashing. Please fix.
App now crashing as soon as detects device
by Brainmusic Cube on 2016/01/23 18:13
This was working great for a few months and served as a great 4 star app. However it now just crashes as soon as it detects my Integra receiver. I have tried on 2 different iPads with different iOS versions and same problem. Been a while since the developer upgraded the app so hope something comes out soon with some fixes.
Sigh
by Robwhiteley89 on 2016/01/16 05:34
I'm on iOS 9.1, and this app crashes when it tries to sync up with my onkyo r 593. It IDs the onkyo correctly, I think, based on what I see in the app settings when I turn off the onkyo. But when they try to sync when the onkyo is on, the app crashes out. Please fix, I would love to try this out.
Stopped working with iOS 9.0!!!!
by Ken40 on 2015/12/20 20:40
Worked great until 9.0. Now it can't find the receiver.
iOS 9 - app stopped working !
by Iamaweseom on 2015/09/21 04:35
iOS 9 .. Now my onkyo is not discoverable !
No support whatsoever
by TheDurf on 2015/06/24 02:59
update to my review. developer was very slow to fix the issues for IOS 8(took 8 months) but now that its fixed it works perfect. using an Onkyo nr5010 here and all the features The unit has look like they are available. update to the graphics for ios look really nice too.
Fantastic
by BMSG on 2015/06/24 00:03
I have been using oRemote since 2011 and it continues to work flawlessly. Updated interface is excellent.
New GUI
by HBjet on 2015/06/06 17:24
Nice surprise today seeing the new GUI - looks really nice. I only buy Onkyo receivers because of this app (the receivers are pretty awesome too) thanks for keeping this app going!
Need to fix the bass,treble sliding controls
by heydready on 2015/05/09 00:27
After the update this app does not adjust the bass treble anymore on the audio video tab. Wrote an email to the developer and no response. Anyhow this is a good app. Please fix this and I will give this 5 stars
Doesn't work
by Jklusovsky on 2015/05/08 20:15
Will not connect. Save your money. I wish I did
OK, but layout is badly designed
by Dude0u812 on 2015/04/19 00:33
Ok, the good news is this functions better than Onkyo's iOS app. That said, the design of this is pretty badly done since the developer is starting from a blank slate. All the buttons are small and close together, which means it's hard or impossible to safely hit what you intend to tap. The "5-way" I some good example - easy as pie to screw up. If you are running something like Pandora it's catastrophic- there's no way to go back. Also, it would be really great if the layout design went back to square one. How about the "home" page with big, easy to hit buttons of the stuff I need 80% of the time? Use other tabs for the esoteric setting I rarely if ever need to see or touch. This could be such an awesome app with some common sense applied, why not do it?
Very Good
by st3ph3n420 on 2015/04/18 19:07
I have used this application for years, mainly because Onkyo is incapable of writing a decent one (or modernizing their firmware for that matter). Essential accessory for any Onkyo audiophile.
A must-have,
by CelticThundah on 2015/03/24 10:50
The app organizes all of the receiver's functionality into a logical and easy-to-navigate UI. I recently upgraded my receiver to the TX-NR626, and while I'm very happy with the receiver's features and functionality, the UI can be frustrating to navigate. oRemote immediately found my receiver on my (wired) network, and allowed me to instantly tailor EQ settings and access Zone 2 without having to walk through multiple menus and button combinations.
Doesn't work for me
by Maryel70 on 2015/02/07 05:34
Just downloaded it to find out it does not have the onkyo TX-8511 on it's list. Just paid out $5 for nothing. Please this model. I use it with a Bluetooth receiver. If you can return my $5 that would be even better.
ORemote

Hands down best Onkyo & Integra app out there!
It gets better the more I use it
by Lash4222 on 2014/12/04 15:32
I love this app! I can't believe how much better control I have on my TX-NR609. It makes using net apps actually pleasant. Very responsive and accurate. Nice job!
Excellent! beats the official apps from the AVR manufacturers.

Works Great on TX-NR616
by Driver of the Frog on 2014/09/19 19:41
This app is amazing.....it does way more than I ever expected, and on top of that it works perfectly. In fact it works better than the remote that came with the TX-NR616. It's all good in the neighborhood now ! ! ! ! !
Excellent app
by -portal- on 2014/09/17 14:28
I have experienced nothing but good results with this thoughtfully designed app. I use it to control my 929 with my 414 being used as a power amp for my front wides in my 11.2 setup. It switches flawlessly, allowing necessary adjustments.
Outstanding !
by DSPMO5 on 2014/08/20 09:01
Wireless life for my old DTR 7.8 Integra. Now I don't have to upgrade to have all my systems controlled wirelessly :) I had to go through the manual connection to my home network, but the directions were straightforward and worked perfectly.
Best Onkyo Remote App
by Hubeman2000 on 2014/07/04 13:48
This app is only getting better and it fairly solid today. Only issues are some small glitches with having to reset things(app or stereo) every now and then. However this app destroys the other Onkyo remotes out there. Very useful for me with outside patio!
Impressive. Second review dropped to ONE STAR!!!
by John in Montana on 2014/06/17 18:42
I don't write many reviews. But this App deserves a review. I've only had it a couple of days and I am learning more and more. I got it for my Onkyo 809. It controls everything I need and more. Much more. It controls my IPod, I have it connected via front USB. Also controls my Sony Blu Ray. I have total and complete control over all three and I'm still learning. If I had a sony t.v. It would control that too. Well worth the $4.99 I give it 4 stars because I'm still new with this. If it controlled my 61" JVC t.v. And directv it would be perfect. I will update in a few weeks. John This is a follow up to my original review. At first it was very impressive and worked flawlessly for about two weeks. Now it will not connect to my receiver. I also cannot make it connect manually. I've unplugged my receiver a couple of times as suggested, but this did not work. Final solution, uninstall and reinstall the App. This did not work. I am changing my rating to a single star. Hopefully they can get this issue corrected. John Here's yet another follow up. Jun 17, 2014 In my previous reviews I had several issues with connectivity. Well, the App. Quit working altogether. I've deleted and uploaded a new App. Several times. Nothing!! I've set it to auto detect, nothing... I did it manually, still don't work!! Mr. Worne really needs to fix theses issues!! . Till then, don't waste your time or money
Great App. Best on my iPad.
by Rob C From NY on 2014/04/20 13:21
This app offers a significant amount of control of my Onkyo receiver. I find it extremely useful with the depth of functionality available. For those who can't connect, I suggest you check the receiver. Onkyo's networking solution on the receiver is quirky. I often have to refresh the IP address by disabling "network standby", shutting down the unit and then restarting. This is an issue outside this app, hence my rating. Hope this helps
oRemote Did not do anything
by garberark on 2014/03/27 15:47
I bought this app and put in on an i-phone 5. I could not get it do connect to any of my electronic devices and gave up. I found it useless but not even worth the hassle of getting a refund for $5.
Works fantastic on my nr-717
by A.B.1 on 2014/03/05 12:47
I used O-remote first but had connectivity issues and low functionality. This works every time for me. The best feature is I can set audio modes and equalizations quickly. Feature set is rich and intuitive and much better than the onkyo app or actual remote control. It's worth every penny from the not having to debug it and just works point of view.
Best Onkyo remote app
by upsdave50 on 2014/03/01 22:05
This app is a must have if you own an Onkyo compatible receiver. Best money spent in the app store so far. I highly recommend!
Pretty slick!!
by joeltb on 2014/02/14 15:25
It found my NR-609 as soon as I opened the app! Works perfectly. Way better than the onkyo app. Worth the $5.00
Very happy
by Jeffc.davis on 2013/11/30 02:14
I downloaded this app after purchasing a new Integra (premium Onkyo line) home theatre receiver. It worked perfectly. Recently had a lightning strike and had to replace the receiver with an updated model. The app couldn't find it at first. Deleted and downloaded the app again. Once again, perfect. Great support and frequent updates. I am a happy customer. ~JD
LOVE it!
by 337712 on 2013/10/10 02:09
This is a GREAT app. I actually picked my last Onkyo Receiver (TX NR616) partly because it was supported by an app like this. Because I had this app (iPad), I was able to use the receiver without having it attached to a TV (music only). Great for picking Pandora stations. Only reason I don't give it five stars is because it's sometimes slow to connect to the receiver or reconnect when I wake up the iPad.
Works.....doesn't stream
by ohiobuilder on 2013/10/06 17:48
Controls the receiver but doesn't allow you to stream iPad music to the receiver. Seems like the details are a bit misleading.
Nice! Better Than OME's "remote"
by Weaverox on 2013/10/05 23:32
Much better option than Onkyo's two feeble attempts at OEM apps. You'd think ONKYO would have the foresight to develop an A-Grade App to accompany the release of every model now. Sadly, like so many other major brands, their own apps fall exteremly below consumer expectations. That a lead for one of you young go-getters: start cracking out apps like this and undermine big biz:). Lol.
Integra receiver essential
by Coolmusic2013 on 2013/09/24 06:37
I love the O Remote. It's a total must have if you are looking for control over your music around your house. It's functionality is intuitive and simple to use. The tech support was above and beyond what I could have hoped for. The app designer addressed issues with my receiver not even related to the O Remote. He completely went beyond my expectations. This app is worth far more then the small fee to purchase it. O Remote got this one right. Go and get it!
Iove it

Does not work with Onkyo nr616 it can see it but it does not Control anything.
Ugh

Won't connect after update.
Great App!
by Richard Ishihara on 2013/08/10 01:10
Way better than the Onkyo remote
This app is awesome!
by Bad Ace!!! on 2013/07/15 17:31
Thank you for the continued support on this product... This app is why I bought an Onkyo. Please keep the updates coming, and please make retina for iPad....
Won't open after update
by Big E 1310 on 2013/07/04 15:49
Just crashes a few seconds in as it's about to identify my receiver. TX-NR5009 over home wifi was fine. Will update stars after fix. This app is essential to me as I have to change a setting for best sound when I switch between cable & ps3. This setting can't be changed with the stock remote! Please hurry!
Must have app
by Jerzdawg on 2013/07/03 23:34
Easily one of the best purchases I've made in the app store. This app paired with my onkyo 809 have made everything so simple. The ability to rename all of the inputs has been great for my wife since I have 7 inputs currently hooked up. The advanced settings are great since I don't find the onkyo GUI as intuitive. Being able to change crossover settings and db levels per speaker made tweaking my setup a breeze. I can also say the support for this product is great. I've already had three or four updates that actually added new features or improved the app even more. Also received email from the developer with an hour of me first emailing him about a question on the app. Update- after 6 months of use i still stand by the 5 star rating. Lots of updates since purchased so continued support is certainly there.
Outstanding
by BurnKarma on 2013/06/29 19:56
Honestly. I do not know why Onkyo has not hired you to do the app for them. This app is light-years ahead of the Onkyo app.
Works well with tx nr626
by Orangeandblue on 2013/06/28 02:53
No issues at all everything works with the tx-nr626
Way better than Onkyo Remote 2
by Shaggy1333 on 2013/06/18 23:45
First time using connected immediately, way more functions than Onkyo's and volume control is very granular. Since im using for first time cant comment on crashing. iPhone 5.
So far, so good!
by Wgreenwo23 on 2013/06/15 18:05
Only been using this for a couple of hours, but so far it works WAY better than the Onkyo remote app! Happy so far!

Wonderful remote - works very well and controls all features one would need. Best remote I've downloaded!
Onkyo CS-N755
by Ankles78 on 2013/05/13 02:57
When will this product support the Onkyo CS-N755?
Works great!
by Chubby bunny 247 on 2013/05/09 21:30
I bought this app to control my zone that powers the speakers in my back yard and it does that great and then some. Thanks Robert.
Good remote.
by Leedogg1985 on 2013/05/09 00:37
It works well. Would love it if it would control an Apple TV also.
Works Great
by MacSawdust on 2013/04/24 23:28
Solid and functional.
A+++ Love it!! Leaps & bounds ahead of Onkyo's own app!
by TheDocTrex on 2013/04/20 00:33
I tried a couple of different apps for my TX-NR818 and have to say, this one is just pure awesomeness! The fact that this shows the current status etc on the phone and gives you full control of your AVR is perfect. Thank you to the creator of this app. The $4.99 was definitely worth it!
Does exactly what I need it to do
by Lincoln30 on 2013/04/19 04:18
I got the tx-8050 stereo recvr and tried the Onkyo remote 2 app but I don't have a tv hooked up to my stereo recvr so the Onkyo app is pretty useless for many of the functions I need to use. This app let's me see what I need to see on the iPhone screen to operate the functions of the recvr and Internet radio ( especially pandora) almost as good as the grace remote app for my systems using grace tuners. Perfect since the recvr is located in my living room and I'm listening two floors up on my roof patio.
Works really well
by ApolloCreed77 on 2013/04/14 13:04
This app is so much better than Onkyo's Remote 2 App. It can do everything and as a result it takes a little while to configure, but works perfectly!
Onkyo Should Hire This Guy!
by FELCAnderegg on 2013/03/24 03:12
I've been patiently waiting for an Onkyo remote update that would make their app work as well as Oremote. One finally came, BUT it had NO changes or upgrades of any sort that I could find. They need to hire this guy! A combination of their user interface and his ability to get my 3 networked receivers to give their all would be amazing. Thanks for investing so much energy into this!
Very buggy
by Jipillo on 2013/03/16 21:08
Doesn't always work. I usually have to start it with Onkyo's app and then it may or may not function. When it does work, it's pretty slick with all the things it can do. I can't recommend it though.
On?
by rperronejr on 2013/02/25 05:00
Doesn't turn on the receiver. No problem turning it off, and other operations, but won't turn it on. Can't recommend an app that is a remote, that won't even turn the unit on.
Yes, best so far
by S-curvy on 2019/02/01 19:14
For years, I have resisted this app because it is the most expensive ($5) of the bunch and Onkytroller was satisfactory, the official Onkyo apps are nearly useless. Well O-Remote is much better. The functional controls, even the internet radio & DLNA, are all directly available from the main screen! It offers nearly all the functions available on the regular remote from anywhere you have the WiFi connection and it reconnects almost instantly when the phone screen no longer shows the app — the official app takes long seconds every single time the screen shuts off or is switched to any other app. Having the ability to control my AV deck and the different zones via my phone from anywhere within my WiFi range is awesome. UPDATE 01 Feb 2019: I figured out the disconnection issue, it’s not the app, it’s the AV deck losing its connection. Solution is to unplug the deck for 10 seconds and then restart it. It will re-initialize the Ethernet connection & and the App will work great again.
Best Onkyo App so Far
by E46333 on 2017/01/14 16:17
I have tried most of them and ORemote is my favorite. Recently Onkyo's own app has improved quite a bit. However ORemote gives a lot more control over you receiver which others don't. The interface is quite good. One feature I would request is highlight current setting in the pop up menu so you know what it's set to. Also it works with the 2016 RZ series. Otherwise very happy with app.
6 stars
by clintsomething on 2018/07/06 21:15
I had been having a lot of frustration with my TX-NR626 and the Onkyo remote very sporadically working. It would occasionally not find the receiver, and when it did, would rarely connect. I tried fixing my phone, internet, resetting the receiver, and nothing helped. Downloaded this app, problem solved. Thanks!!
Working Great Now
by Carnutzblues on 2017/04/17 15:02
Worked fine with my TX-NR737 for over a year, then had issues. Fixed now. The Onkyo version is a total joke. Any issues with software can usually be fixed with unplugging the receiver. Hope he continues to keep improving this app, as it works!
TX-1009 functionality dropping
by MoovinTarget on 2020/05/08 21:36
The earlier releases allowed more zone 2 & 3 control. I can no longer use equalizer, sound mode, and other features on zone 2. I can no longer change the Net application in zone 2. I cannot select stations in Pandora and slacker in zone 2. I must intermittently browse to Receiver IP address to keep remote connected to receiver after running other phone apps.
Terrible App Support
by Greg9999999999 on 2017/09/20 02:14
The developer can’t be bothered to answer support request. I have repeatedly submitted support request both through the app itself and the Facesmash site. The issue I’m having is periodic invalid IP errors on app launch and periodic app freezes. I have read that other users are having the same issues. If the developer has passed away and the app is in a zombie state, it would be nice to know. I would certainly send flowers if he has passed......,
Best onkyo option
by Arasco85 on 2017/05/27 17:50
This app is awesome! I can control all 3 of my zone inputs, volumes and a lot more from this app. If you have a onkyo or integra receiver this is the way to go!!!! Don't waste your time with the onkyo or integra apps as you can't control multi zones.
Used to be awesome!
by Jrichkc on 2017/09/04 16:54
I have used this app for a few years. When I first got it I could even turn my receiver on via the app. I have lost function with each update and it is currently borderline useless. I would gladly pay again to have the original version I used three years ago. Any chance we can do that? I will happily change this to a five star review if it started working like it used to.
Better than the original!
by JFC3 on 2018/04/21 21:54
Much more detailed and clearly designed than the Onkyo versions. Thanks for the updates! My 810 & 646 both work beautifully.
Fantastic!
by The googoomuk on 2019/02/25 22:05
So much better I deleted the Onkyo factory app! Finally I can easily control zone source and volume from anywhere around my home!
Awesome Onkyo Remote App
by The77Ronin on 2017/03/31 03:49
So convenient to have a remote app for your receiver on your phone, and one that works well, and has great function and features.
Crash crash crash
by TalkenRain on 2019/02/12 16:17
This use to work great but somewhere along iOS updates and/or hardware updates, it stopped working. I see this app has not been updated in a while. I suspect that has something to do with it no longer working. Bottom line, it use to be the best but now it’s useless!!!
Could be...
by Ricco S on 2020/06/01 20:25
a great app, but it crashes consisitently upon opening. The very few times it doesn't, I really enjoy the functionality and user interface. Too bad the app is nearly unusable due to it's crashing. Robert (Developer): are you addressing this? If not I will request a refund.
Unstable to the Max
by Ernie is annoyed on 2018/02/04 01:13
I’d be happy to change this review if I’m doing something wrong with this app controlling my TX-NR676 on an IPhone 6 running iOS 11.2.5. Paid $4.99, downloaded app. Touch icon to open. Every time, app screen opens and then disappears immediately back to basic home screen. Wasted $4.99.
Unusable
by Ginger Biggs on 2018/05/26 19:32
Looks and sounds like a great App but crashes within 5 seconds of opening every time. Onkyo’s own app seems to be working again. Only $5 but I might as well have wiped with it for all I’ve gotten out of this purchase.
Not working for me
by rvcta on 2018/10/01 02:25
I wish it would work, but every time I open it. The app comes up and disappears in 3 seconds, I have tried unplugging the av receiver with hopes that it would reset, but no luck yet. I will rate again but it dose not work at this time.
No longer works
by Arbym313 on 2020/01/05 13:58
I used to love this app. I upgraded my receiver to TX-NR686 and the app no longer works. Always crashes on receiver connection. Don’t waste your time or money until there are updates.
zone 2
by nacho6463 on 2019/01/10 03:27
I just bough the app but I can control Zone 2 only, Main zone is missing...
App crashes immediately
by Jm458697 on 2020/05/03 16:09
When I open the app and select the receiver the program immediately crashes.
Unless Your Receiver is 3+ Years, Don’t Bother

Used to be a great app, but it won’t with receivers released after it’s last update. The app will just crash once it detects a receiver doesn’t recognize

Dont work with 787?
by Rogerio.Coelho on 2019/02/03 04:36
In oldies models ok. The best. But dont work with new models; 787
Awesome to have but UI and button placement could use a bit of work.
by Feedmeister on 2011/06/04 18:06
This app is very useful and has many features. One thing I noticed is that the button placement is kind of weird and not intuitive sometimes. There is a lot of open space on some screens while others are so packed in that it takes a long time to figure out what you want to do. I think if the developer spent some time working on UI and ergonomics of button placement, it would be a very superior, useful, and fun to use app. Also, it'd be nice to be able to vote up and down songs on Pandora while using the Internet radio. As is, it's a useful app, but not very pretty. I know the developer probably has been focusing on features and updating the app to work with newer AVRs, but I think he should consider design as well. Other bugs: playback stalls when using the app on some screens and connectivity is flakey. I'll connect and use the remote for a few minutes, but then after a few minutes, the remote will stop working. I'm using the nr609. In any case, thanks Dev for making this app. I wish I spent less time in the app and more time listening or watching stuff, but the buttons and spacing make it difficult. I've only had this app for a night, so I'll update it again if I feel differently after a few days.
Fantastic For My Onkyo!
by dtsdig on 2011/11/21 16:25
This app had been a fantastic upgrade to my home system. Over the weekend, I finally installed a set of speakers in my kitchen so I could start using Zone 2. I quickly found out that in order to be able to control anything in other zones, I had to use ORemote. Onkyo's official app lacks so much functionality, I can rarely put its simple interface to good use. Their app has no controls for zones at all. Why would a company make a wifi remote that does not allow you to control the music in another room? Anyway, so far ORemote has been totally solid although I have experienced an occasional crash when I've gone back to the app after a while of not using it while the receiver is still playing something. I am just digging in to all of its in-depth features and it has made using multiple zones really awesome in my house. Over the next month or two, I'll be adding a set of powered speakers in my bedroom and will start putting Zone 3 to work. I'm glad I have this app to allow me complete control no matter how I have everything hooked up. Nice job and keep the updates coming! For reference, I use a TX-NR808.
Works great with just a couple of small bugs
by drbobl on 2013/01/02 22:17
Using this with a new Onkyo TX-NR 3010. It finds it fast and is fantastic for controlling the extensive audio choices. Also allows using Pandora net radio without turning on the home theater projector to navigate! It has different screens but equal ease of use on iPhone 5 and on iPad. Overall a great app! Thanks a ton for developing it. Way better than Onkyo's own app. Cons: sometimes hangs making it unresponsive to touch. Closing it and reopening solves it. Sometimes fails to update the screen. This may be Onkyo not updating data, but leaves the screen data on old song, etc. Wish list: ability to make 12v control on 3010 turn on zone 2 trigger always, so my outboard power amp would turn on when the receiver is on, independent of zone! Onkyo really blew it on this, considering you need external for 11.1 sound. This app makes a very complex receiver and surround setup much more manageable! A must-have!!!
Must have app

Easily one of the best purchases I've made in the app store. This app paired with my onkyo 809 have made everything so simple.

FANTASTIC APP!
by RSVideo on 2013/02/12 02:53
My Onkyo 906 AVR, is now 4 years old, time passes quickly in the electronics world! So I thought I would just see what this app could do. It's "supported", but for far fewer features then newer models. BUT, I am very happy I tried it. Amazing for the features it does support on my old AVR. Now I can at least change the radio channels, volume, while in a different room, unlike the "line of sight" remote. I wish my AVR supported all the goodies that this app can do, but I'm content with what it can do. This developer has done an incredible job with this app, I'm still playing with it to find more things it does support, and there are more things then the dev lists for my model AVR. If you have a newer model and have a home network, then you should get this app, working on both my iPhone 4 and iPad 3. Great job!
Impressive. Second review dropped to ONE STAR!!!
by John in Montana on 2014/06/17 18:42
I don't write many reviews. But this App deserves a review. I've only had it a couple of days and I am learning more and more. I got it for my Onkyo 809. It controls everything I need and more. Much more. It controls my IPod, I have it connected via front USB. Also controls my Sony Blu Ray. I have total and complete control over all three and I'm still learning. If I had a sony t.v. It would control that too. Well worth the $4.99 I give it 4 stars because I'm still new with this. If it controlled my 61" JVC t.v. And directv it would be perfect. I will update in a few weeks. John This is a follow up to my original review. At first it was very impressive and worked flawlessly for about two weeks. Now it will not connect to my receiver. I also cannot make it connect manually. I've unplugged my receiver a couple of times as suggested, but this did not work. Final solution, uninstall and reinstall the App. This did not work. I am changing my rating to a single star. Hopefully they can get this issue corrected. John Here's yet another follow up. Jun 17, 2014 In my previous reviews I had several issues with connectivity. Well, the App. Quit working altogether. I've deleted and uploaded a new App. Several times. Nothing!! I've set it to auto detect, nothing... I did it manually, still don't work!! Mr. Worne really needs to fix theses issues!! . Till then, don't waste your time or money
Outstanding Remote App
by zenpadawan on 2013/01/16 06:16
If Onkyo isn't paying the developer, they should: the fact that there doesn't seem to be an equivalent third-party app for Marantz receivers is the only thing that keeps me from switching to that brand for my next receiver. Yes, the app has had occasional connection problems in the past, but they've been fixed quickly. The ability to rename the inputs (i.e., "Apple TV" instead of "Cable/Sat") is great, as is the access to nearly all of the receiver's settings. I just discovered a new AirPlay button in the app; my TX-NR3008 doesn't have AirPlay built-in, but I pressed it anyway and discovered that it opens up the iTunes library on my iDevice and allows me to stream them to my Apple TV. Nice.
Great Remote
by grandiris72 on 2012/01/19 07:06
I love this remote. I have had no problems with the software since I downloaded it about 3 weeks ago. I am using it with an Onkyo TX-NR509. I have found myself to be using this remote more than the one that it came with for two reasons. One, we keep our receiver in a closet and we have to leave the doors open in order for the other to work. The second is i can see what is being shown on the lcd screen on the app. In my experience with this app, it seems to have a bit of difficulty locating the receiver, I have to restart the app a few times to get it to work. The information on the app seems to lag behind what is actually playing. Aside from those two issues, its a great app and i'm glad I bought it.
OK, but layout is badly designed
by Dude0u812 on 2015/04/19 00:33
Ok, the good news is this functions better than Onkyo's iOS app. That said, the design of this is pretty badly done since the developer is starting from a blank slate. All the buttons are small and close together, which means it's hard or impossible to safely hit what you intend to tap. The "5-way" I some good example - easy as pie to screw up. If you are running something like Pandora it's catastrophic- there's no way to go back. Also, it would be really great if the layout design went back to square one. How about the "home" page with big, easy to hit buttons of the stuff I need 80% of the time? Use other tabs for the esoteric setting I rarely if ever need to see or touch. This could be such an awesome app with some common sense applied, why not do it?
great idea - latest version has bugs
by a student and reviewer on 2011/03/24 04:10
I was using this version and it worked fine (with an Onkyo TX-NR807), but the latest release apparently has some bugs: it seems to loose the ability to connect to the Onkyo when the Onkyo is in standby state. I.e., the problem is that when the Onkyo is in standby state, this app can't connect to it any longer in order to power it on. Once I manually hit the button on the Onkyo, all works well, but previous versions of oRemote didn't have this issue. More information: The onkyo is at the latest firmware release, and there were no Onkyo firmware updates since this problem started happening (in fat the only thing different is that I upgraded to oRemote 1.2.5). If this bug is fixed, I'll gladly update my review.
Almost replaces on screen controls/setup
by Dookie 2x on 2012/12/30 21:12
It works amazingly well and is perhaps a little too feature rich for a remote but the upside is you can more quickly access the setting (audio, video, input setup, zones, etc) than if using the Onkyo remote included with the receiver and especially if you have to navigate the on screen menus for some settings. That being said, there are some on screen settings like DLNA, internet radio, etc that this doesn't replace. It would be great if it did. It could also use an owner's manual or some documentation since this is more detailed than the Onkyo app and also covers areas that aren't easily found/associated to features in the Onkyo owner's manual.
Best Remote App Ever!
by That1Guy on 2011/05/15 04:46
I've tried several other remote apps, and they have never really worked for me. Then I tried this one...this app will allow me to put my Onkyo remote, my PS3 remote and my Sony Blu-ray remote away permanently. Not only will this app power on my receiver and allow me to change virtually every setting I could ever want, it also allows for HDMI-CEC control of my Blu-ray players when set up properly on the setup menus. It was up and running in 5 minutes. Simply amazing. Best $5 I've ever spent. Now all I need is my iPhone and my TV remote to turn the TV off. It turns on automatically when I shut off the Onkyo!
Still Works!
by Treh on 2012/10/28 23:15
I downloaded the latest version of ORemote and was frustrated because it would not connect to my Onkyo 509. After trying many things including the manual configuration per the ORemote website and unplugging my receiver and router, it still didn't work. My last resort was to delete the app from both my IPad and iPhone and then load it again. I really didn't want to knock my review down to 1 star because it used to be a really good ap. Well, much to my surprise, after reloading the apps on my devices, it now works! So, give that a try, it may work for you too!
Sweet!
by GEORGE ARANCHERRY on 2011/06/18 21:38
I've never written a review for app before but I was so pleased with the developer's speed to respond to my questions and the quality of the app itself that I felt it was necessary. This app blows away the OEM Onkyo app by leaps and bounds. The fact that it works on both the iPad and iPhone is awesome. On the iPhone it is perfectly useable but on the iPad is where the fun begins. Because of the extra space everything is laid out much better. Couple that with very frequent updates and super fast email responses from the developer (at midnight no less!) make for a great app. Buy it. Buy it now! :)
Great app
by Oremotefan on 2012/04/08 01:40
I bought an onkyo receiver to go in my basement. After a home remodel I want to hard wire kitchen and deck speakers into it. My dream was to be able to control the unit via my network. The free onkyo app was good but this one seemed better. Although I was very happy with it. I soon learned that I could not change the a/b speakers via the app (and the standard ir remote and free app did not either). Saddened and frustrated I emailed the oremote developer who published a new release the next day with full a/b control! Who could ask for better! Oremote and it's support gets five stars from me
Good app...almost great
by 06sgpett on 2012/08/25 14:03
I REALLY like this app.....when it is working. I have a difficult time getting it to connect to my receiver and when it finally does if I leave the app to do something else and then comeback it will not reconnect unless I completely close out and start the app back up or turn my phone's wifi off and then back on. Is this a glitch with the app or something with my router or a setting that can be easily fixed? I don't know. The onkyo remote app seems to stay connected much better although it has much less ability to fully control my tx6nr609
Extremely helpful
by Nahman65 on 2011/06/28 01:02
I bought a onkyo 809 AVR, this app works with all the functions. I was having one glitch with my ipod cutting in and out on play when the remote is in reciever mode. I emailed the author and he set me up with testflight to load a beta fix and it works perfectly. This controls my home theatre, my outside pool zones and all the other rooms in the house. I have a 2 Tb herd drive on my network and can access ANY movie or song i want with this remote. I am in audiophile heaven. Great job Robert both with the app and the support. Thank you Tom L
Love this app!!

My home remote volume quit working so I decided look into app to control my receiver through the free ones that onkyo offers and couldn't get them to work? Could be my lack of ability? So as a last attempt I tried this app and was able to get it working through the manual input mode as the detection wasn't able to find my receiver. Once I got it working I couldn't believe how good it is!! For the price it's awesome and I definitely recommend these guys!
Awesome
by PandaBear75 on 2012/08/16 19:33
Initially, I had a small issue where I got errors each time I used the app. This was due to the settings on my router needing to be adjusted. After that, I have thoroughly enjoyed using this app. I tend to use it when I'm in the mood to read a book on my iPad and to play music. The app works beautifully for being able to quickly change channels, skip a song, or even like/dislike a song which is nifty. Definitely a 5 star app with a responsive author.

by Ricco S on 2020/06/01 20:25
a great app, but it crashes consisitently upon opening. The very few times it doesn't, I really enjoy the functionality and user interface. Too bad the app is nearly unusable due to it's crashing. Robert (Developer): are you addressing this? If not I will request a refund.

So happy to find this app. Perfect!
TX-1009 functionality dropping
by MoovinTarget on 2020/05/08 21:36
The earlier releases allowed more zone 2 & 3 control. I can no longer use equalizer, sound mode, and other features on zone 2. I can no longer change the Net application in zone 2. I cannot select stations in Pandora and slacker in zone 2. I must intermittently browse to Receiver IP address to keep remote connected to receiver after running other phone apps.
App crashes immediately
by Jm458697 on 2020/05/03 16:09
When I open the app and select the receiver the program immediately crashes.
Unless Your Receiver is 3+ Years, Don’t Bother
by AtlantaGraphic on 2020/02/10 02:24
Used to be a great app, but it won’t with receivers released after it’s last update. The app will just crash once it detects a receiver doesn’t recognize
No longer works
by Arbym313 on 2020/01/05 13:58
I used to love this app. I upgraded my receiver to TX-NR686 and the app no longer works. Always crashes on receiver connection. Don’t waste your time or money until there are updates.
No Good
by jdbalto on 2019/07/13 17:37
What a waste of money , the app keeps crashing. doesn't stay open long enough to connect my receiver. I want my money back !!!!!!
Useless
by robk64r on 2019/05/27 00:20
Connects to my receiver, and that’s where the fun both begins and ends.
Fantastic!
by The googoomuk on 2019/02/25 22:05
So much better I deleted the Onkyo factory app! Finally I can easily control zone source and volume from anywhere around my home!
Crash crash crash
by TalkenRain on 2019/02/12 16:17
This use to work great but somewhere along iOS updates and/or hardware updates, it stopped working. I see this app has not been updated in a while. I suspect that has something to do with it no longer working. Bottom line, it use to be the best but now it’s useless!!!

Dont work with 787?
by Rogerio.Coelho on 2019/02/03 04:36
In oldies models ok. The best. But dont work with new models; 787
Yes, best so far
by S-curvy on 2019/02/01 19:14
For years, I have resisted this app because it is the most expensive ($5) of the bunch and Onkytroller was satisfactory, the official Onkyo apps are nearly useless. Well O-Remote is much better. The functional controls, even the internet radio & DLNA, are all directly available from the main screen! It offers nearly all the functions available on the regular remote from anywhere you have the WiFi connection and it reconnects almost instantly when the phone screen no longer shows the app — the official app takes long seconds every single time the screen shuts off or is switched to any other app. Having the ability to control my AV deck and the different zones via my phone from anywhere within my WiFi range is awesome. UPDATE 01 Feb 2019: I figured out the disconnection issue, it’s not the app, it’s the AV deck losing its connection. Solution is to unplug the deck for 10 seconds and then restart it. It will re-initialize the Ethernet connection & and the App will work great again.
zone 2
by nacho6463 on 2019/01/10 03:27
I just bough the app but I can control Zone 2 only, Main zone is missing...
Doesn’t work
by Long time fans on 2018/11/07 01:45
App just closes.
Not working for me
by rvcta on 2018/10/01 02:25
I wish it would work, but every time I open it. The app comes up and disappears in 3 seconds, I have tried unplugging the av receiver with hopes that it would reset, but no luck yet. I will rate again but it dose not work at this time.
6 stars
by clintsomething on 2018/07/06 21:15
I had been having a lot of frustration with my TX-NR626 and the Onkyo remote very sporadically working. It would occasionally not find the receiver, and when it did, would rarely connect. I tried fixing my phone, internet, resetting the receiver, and nothing helped. Downloaded this app, problem solved. Thanks!!
Unusable
by Ginger Biggs on 2018/05/26 19:32
Looks and sounds like a great App but crashes within 5 seconds of opening every time. Onkyo’s own app seems to be working again. Only $5 but I might as well have wiped with it for all I’ve gotten out of this purchase.
Better than the original!
by JFC3 on 2018/04/21 21:54
Much more detailed and clearly designed than the Onkyo versions. Thanks for the updates! My 810 & 646 both work beautifully.
Great app
by Deckadent on 2018/04/12 22:50
I use this everyday, best app for me - ever.
Unstable to the Max
by Ernie is annoyed on 2018/02/04 01:13
I’d be happy to change this review if I’m doing something wrong with this app controlling my TX-NR676 on an IPhone 6 running iOS 11.2.5. Paid $4.99, downloaded app. Touch icon to open. Every time, app screen opens and then disappears immediately back to basic home screen. Wasted $4.99.
Nothing but trouble
by bbderek1 on 2017/12/22 03:44
Great when it works. But too much trouble with connection issues. Good riddance.
Terrible App Support
by Greg9999999999 on 2017/09/20 02:14
The developer can’t be bothered to answer support request. I have repeatedly submitted support request both through the app itself and the Facesmash site. The issue I’m having is periodic invalid IP errors on app launch and periodic app freezes. I have read that other users are having the same issues. If the developer has passed away and the app is in a zombie state, it would be nice to know. I would certainly send flowers if he has passed......,
Used to be awesome!
by Jrichkc on 2017/09/04 16:54
I have used this app for a few years. When I first got it I could even turn my receiver on via the app. I have lost function with each update and it is currently borderline useless. I would gladly pay again to have the original version I used three years ago. Any chance we can do that? I will happily change this to a five star review if it started working like it used to.
Awful App
by Hehehrjsjdgwjaj on 2017/08/15 04:47
Crashes after searching for receiver. Very disappointing.
Looks great but doesn't work for me.
by #%^*+???? on 2017/07/18 11:40
Interface looks great but after three days App wouldn't work on my IPad.
Best onkyo option
by Arasco85 on 2017/05/27 17:50
This app is awesome! I can control all 3 of my zone inputs, volumes and a lot more from this app. If you have a onkyo or integra receiver this is the way to go!!!! Don't waste your time with the onkyo or integra apps as you can't control multi zones.
Working Great Now
by Carnutzblues on 2017/04/17 15:02
Worked fine with my TX-NR737 for over a year, then had issues. Fixed now. The Onkyo version is a total joke. Any issues with software can usually be fixed with unplugging the receiver. Hope he continues to keep improving this app, as it works!
Awesome Onkyo Remote App
by The77Ronin on 2017/03/31 03:49
So convenient to have a remote app for your receiver on your phone, and one that works well, and has great function and features.
Thank you !!
by Steve243776643 on 2017/01/28 16:23
Thank you for continuing to update this app. Best so far !! I have been using this on my 2012 TX-NR509 and now my 2016 TZ-R800. Works great. Would be nice if there was a clean dashboard for controlling Spotify with volume controls on one screen. Currently using the app on a wall mounted IPad on my kitchen.
Best Onkyo App so Far
by E46333 on 2017/01/14 16:17
I have tried most of them and ORemote is my favorite. Recently Onkyo's own app has improved quite a bit. However ORemote gives a lot more control over you receiver which others don't. The interface is quite good. One feature I would request is highlight current setting in the pop up menu so you know what it's set to. Also it works with the 2016 RZ series. Otherwise very happy with app.

I've enjoyed this app since about 5 years. Latest update immediately crashes on iPhone 6 Plus running iOS 10.2.

by Dave0417 on 2017/01/08 12:03
This update crashes as soon as it's started. Previous version worked perfectly, I have tried it on 2 different IPads.
New update gives the app a new life.
by Bellemead on 2017/01/07 15:51
Glad a much needed update has arrived. I'd given up hope but I am pleasantly surprised. A great app that now supports my receiver.
Best Onkyo Remote
by Bubbabubbabubba on 2017/01/06 21:42
I have been using this on my 818 since I purchased it. Remote works flawlessly, and makes it so nice during movies to make adjustments. Worth the $!!!
Buggy for 2 channel TX-8050
by Richard8655 on 2016/12/19 19:36
The iPad version continually hangs and freezes my TX-8050. I have to unplug and plug the receiver to reset it. I then have to avoid using this app and just use the Onkyo remote control. This app is pretty worthless, at least for the TX-8050 model. I complained to the developer many times, but he never resolves this issue.
Love this app!!
by Oilman400 on 2016/10/16 19:30
My home remote volume quit working so I decided look into app to control my receiver through the free ones that onkyo offers and couldn't get them to work? Could be my lack of ability?

So far so good
by Gontrwr on 2016/08/14 15:07
Onkyo needs to take a lesson from this developer. I have owned the app for about 30 minutes and already 100% satisfied. Onkyo's app falls off about every 50 seconds. It will actually kick my phone off of my network. This app has zero faults so far. Way better layout. It makes my receiver do more than Onkyo's app. THRILLED SO FAR. WORTH THE MONEY.
Lack of indicated updates
by #EZMoney on 2016/07/30 16:41
Still waiting for the updates for 2015 models.
Best Onkyo app
by Cuzzin21 on 2016/07/24 15:53
Control your Onkyo receiver from any room. Listen to Pandora, favorite web radio station and your own music collection on your computer using the app.
Best App by Far!
by ChrGri217 on 2016/04/16 18:23
Thank you developers! Although it has a bug or two from time to time while trying to keep up with the various iOS platforms it is by far the best and most complete app for Onkyo receivers. Well worth the money.
Will Not connect with Xfinity modem
by Videoman 2069 on 2016/04/03 19:24
I recently updated my modem & now Oremote will no longer connect to it. I tried to change the IP Address manually through the app as well as in my iPhone settings with no luck. This app needs an update badly!
Os upset
by tactileman on 2016/03/26 23:09

App now crashing as soon as detects device
by Brainmusic Cube on 2016/01/23 18:13
This was working great for a few months and served as a great 4 star app. However it now just crashes as soon as it detects my Integra receiver. I have tried on 2 different iPads with different iOS versions and same problem. Been a while since the developer upgraded the app so hope something comes out soon with some fixes.
Sigh
by Robwhiteley89 on 2016/01/16 05:34
I'm on iOS 9.1, and this app crashes when it tries to sync up with my onkyo r 593. It IDs the onkyo correctly, I think, based on what I see in the app settings when I turn off the onkyo. But when they try to sync when the onkyo is on, the app crashes out. Please fix, I would love to try this out.
Stopped working with iOS 9.0!!!!
by Ken40 on 2015/12/20 20:40
Worked great until 9.0. Now it can't find the receiver.
iOS 9 - app stopped working !
by Iamaweseom on 2015/09/21 04:35
iOS 9 .. Now my onkyo is not discoverable !
No support whatsoever
by TheDurf on 2015/06/24 02:59
update to my review. developer was very slow to fix the issues for IOS 8(took 8 months) but now that its fixed it works perfect. using an Onkyo nr5010 here and all the features The unit has look like they are available. update to the graphics for ios look really nice too.
Fantastic
by BMSG on 2015/06/24 00:03
I have been using oRemote since 2011 and it continues to work flawlessly. Updated interface is excellent.
New GUI
by HBjet on 2015/06/06 17:24
Nice surprise today seeing the new GUI - looks really nice. I only buy Onkyo receivers because of this app (the receivers are pretty awesome too) thanks for keeping this app going!
Need to fix the bass,treble sliding controls
by heydready on 2015/05/09 00:27
After the update this app does not adjust the bass treble anymore on the audio video tab. Wrote an email to the developer and no response. Anyhow this is a good app. Please fix this and I will give this 5 stars
Doesn't work
by Jklusovsky on 2015/05/08 20:15
Will not connect. Save your money. I wish I did
OK, but layout is badly designed
by Dude0u812 on 2015/04/19 00:33
Ok, the good news is this functions better than Onkyo's iOS app. That said, the design of this is pretty badly done since the developer is starting from a blank slate. All the buttons are small and close together, which means it's hard or impossible to safely hit what you intend to tap. The "5-way" I some good example - easy as pie to screw up. If you are running something like Pandora it's catastrophic- there's no way to go back. Also, it would be really great if the layout design went back to square one. How about the "home" page with big, easy to hit buttons of the stuff I need 80% of the time? Use other tabs for the esoteric setting I rarely if ever need to see or touch. This could be such an awesome app with some common sense applied, why not do it?
Very Good
by st3ph3n420 on 2015/04/18 19:07
I have used this application for years, mainly because Onkyo is incapable of writing a decent one (or modernizing their firmware for that matter). Essential accessory for any Onkyo audiophile.
A must-have,
by CelticThundah on 2015/03/24 10:50
The app organizes all of the receiver's functionality into a logical and easy-to-navigate UI. I recently upgraded my receiver to the TX-NR626, and while I'm very happy with the receiver's features and functionality, the UI can be frustrating to navigate. oRemote immediately found my receiver on my (wired) network, and allowed me to instantly tailor EQ settings and access Zone 2 without having to walk through multiple menus and button combinations.
Doesn't work for me
by Maryel70 on 2015/02/07 05:34
Just downloaded it to find out it does not have the onkyo TX-8511 on it's list. Just paid out $5 for nothing. Please this model. I use it with a Bluetooth receiver. If you can return my $5 that would be even better.

It gets better the more I use it
by Lash4222 on 2014/12/04 15:32
I love this app! I can't believe how much better control I have on my TX-NR609. It makes using net apps actually pleasant. Very responsive and accurate. Nice job!
Excellent! beats the official apps from the AVR manufacturers.

Works Great on TX-NR616
by Driver of the Frog on 2014/09/19 19:41
This app is amazing.....it does way more than I ever expected, and on top of that it works perfectly. In fact it works better than the remote that came with the TX-NR616. It's all good in the neighborhood now ! ! ! ! !
Excellent app
by -portal- on 2014/09/17 14:28
I have experienced nothing but good results with this thoughtfully designed app. I use it to control my 929 with my 414 being used as a power amp for my front wides in my 11.2 setup. It switches flawlessly, allowing necessary adjustments.
Outstanding !
by DSPMO5 on 2014/08/20 09:01
Wireless life for my old DTR 7.8 Integra. Now I don't have to upgrade to have all my systems controlled wirelessly :) I had to go through the manual connection to my home network, but the directions were straightforward and worked perfectly.
Best Onkyo Remote App
by Hubeman2000 on 2014/07/04 13:48
This app is only getting better and it fairly solid today. Only issues are some small glitches with having to reset things(app or stereo) every now and then. However this app destroys the other Onkyo remotes out there. Very useful for me with outside patio!
Impressive. Second review dropped to ONE STAR!!!
by John in Montana on 2014/06/17 18:42
I don't write many reviews. But this App deserves a review. I've only had it a couple of days and I am learning more and more. I got it for my Onkyo 809. It controls everything I need and more. Much more. It controls my IPod, I have it connected via front USB. Also controls my Sony Blu Ray. I have total and complete control over all three and I'm still learning. If I had a sony t.v. It would control that too. Well worth the $4.99 I give it 4 stars because I'm still new with this. If it controlled my 61" JVC t.v. And directv it would be perfect. I will update in a few weeks. John This is a follow up to my original review. At first it was very impressive and worked flawlessly for about two weeks. Now it will not connect to my receiver. I also cannot make it connect manually. I've unplugged my receiver a couple of times as suggested, but this did not work. Final solution, uninstall and reinstall the App. This did not work. I am changing my rating to a single star. Hopefully they can get this issue corrected. John Here's yet another follow up. Jun 17, 2014 In my previous reviews I had several issues with connectivity. Well, the App. Quit working altogether. I've deleted and uploaded a new App. Several times. Nothing!! I've set it to auto detect, nothing... I did it manually, still don't work!! Mr. Worne really needs to fix theses issues!! . Till then, don't waste your time or money
Great App. Best on my iPad.
by Rob C From NY on 2014/04/20 13:21
This app offers a significant amount of control of my Onkyo receiver. I find it extremely useful with the depth of functionality available. For those who can't connect, I suggest you check the receiver. Onkyo's networking solution on the receiver is quirky. I often have to refresh the IP address by disabling "network standby", shutting down the unit and then restarting. This is an issue outside this app, hence my rating. Hope this helps
oRemote Did not do anything
by garberark on 2014/03/27 15:47
I bought this app and put in on an i-phone 5. I could not get it do connect to any of my electronic devices and gave up. I found it useless but not even worth the hassle of getting a refund for $5.
Works fantastic on my nr-717
by A.B.1 on 2014/03/05 12:47
I used O-remote first but had connectivity issues and low functionality. This works every time for me. The best feature is I can set audio modes and equalizations quickly. Feature set is rich and intuitive and much better than the onkyo app or actual remote control. It's worth every penny from the not having to debug it and just works point of view.
Best Onkyo remote app
by upsdave50 on 2014/03/01 22:05
This app is a must have if you own an Onkyo compatible receiver. Best money spent in the app store so far. I highly recommend!
Pretty slick!!
by joeltb on 2014/02/14 15:25
It found my NR-609 as soon as I opened the app! Works perfectly. Way better than the onkyo app. Worth the $5.00
Very happy
by Jeffc.davis on 2013/11/30 02:14
I downloaded this app after purchasing a new Integra (premium Onkyo line) home theatre receiver. It worked perfectly. Recently had a lightning strike and had to replace the receiver with an updated model. The app couldn't find it at first. Deleted and downloaded the app again. Once again, perfect. Great support and frequent updates. I am a happy customer. ~JD
LOVE it!
by 337712 on 2013/10/10 02:09
This is a GREAT app. I actually picked my last Onkyo Receiver (TX NR616) partly because it was supported by an app like this. Because I had this app (iPad), I was able to use the receiver without having it attached to a TV (music only). Great for picking Pandora stations. Only reason I don't give it five stars is because it's sometimes slow to connect to the receiver or reconnect when I wake up the iPad.
Works.....doesn't stream
by ohiobuilder on 2013/10/06 17:48
Controls the receiver but doesn't allow you to stream iPad music to the receiver. Seems like the details are a bit misleading.
Nice! Better Than OME's "remote"
by Weaverox on 2013/10/05 23:32
Much better option than Onkyo's two feeble attempts at OEM apps. You'd think ONKYO would have the foresight to develop an A-Grade App to accompany the release of every model now. Sadly, like so many other major brands, their own apps fall exteremly below consumer expectations. That a lead for one of you young go-getters: start cracking out apps like this and undermine big biz:). Lol.
Integra receiver essential
by Coolmusic2013 on 2013/09/24 06:37
I love the O Remote. It's a total must have if you are looking for control over your music around your house. It's functionality is intuitive and simple to use. The tech support was above and beyond what I could have hoped for. The app designer addressed issues with my receiver not even related to the O Remote. He completely went beyond my expectations. This app is worth far more then the small fee to purchase it. O Remote got this one right. Go and get it!
Iove it
by sofiane’s on 2013/09/14 21:17
Very responsive, and well we'll designed.

Does not work with Onkyo nr616 it can see it but it does not Control anything.
Ugh

Won't connect after update.
Great App!
by Richard Ishihara on 2013/08/10 01:10
Way better than the Onkyo remote
This app is awesome!
by Bad Ace!!! on 2013/07/15 17:31
Thank you for the continued support on this product... This app is why I bought an Onkyo. Please keep the updates coming, and please make retina for iPad....
Won't open after update
by Big E 1310 on 2013/07/04 15:49
Just crashes a few seconds in as it's about to identify my receiver. TX-NR5009 over home wifi was fine. Will update stars after fix. This app is essential to me as I have to change a setting for best sound when I switch between cable & ps3. This setting can't be changed with the stock remote! Please hurry!
Must have app
by Jerzdawg on 2013/07/03 23:34
Easily one of the best purchases I've made in the app store. This app paired with my onkyo 809 have made everything so simple. The ability to rename all of the inputs has been great for my wife since I have 7 inputs currently hooked up. The advanced settings are great since I don't find the onkyo GUI as intuitive. Being able to change crossover settings and db levels per speaker made tweaking my setup a breeze. I can also say the support for this product is great. I've already had three or four updates that actually added new features or improved the app even more. Also received email from the developer with an hour of me first emailing him about a question on the app. Update- after 6 months of use i still stand by the 5 star rating. Lots of updates since purchased so continued support is certainly there.
Outstanding
by BurnKarma on 2013/06/29 19:56
Honestly. I do not know why Onkyo has not hired you to do the app for them. This app is light-years ahead of the Onkyo app.
Works well with tx nr626
by Orangeandblue on 2013/06/28 02:53
No issues at all everything works with the tx-nr626
Way better than Onkyo Remote 2
by Shaggy1333 on 2013/06/18 23:45
First time using connected immediately, way more functions than Onkyo's and volume control is very granular. Since im using for first time cant comment on crashing. iPhone 5.
So far, so good!
by Wgreenwo23 on 2013/06/15 18:05
Only been using this for a couple of hours, but so far it works WAY better than the Onkyo remote app! Happy so far!

Wonderful remote - works very well and controls all features one would need. Best remote I've downloaded!
Onkyo CS-N755
by Ankles78 on 2013/05/13 02:57
When will this product support the Onkyo CS-N755?
Works great!
by Chubby bunny 247 on 2013/05/09 21:30
I bought this app to control my zone that powers the speakers in my back yard and it does that great and then some. Thanks Robert.
Good remote.
by Leedogg1985 on 2013/05/09 00:37
It works well. Would love it if it would control an Apple TV also.
Works Great
by MacSawdust on 2013/04/24 23:28
Solid and functional.
A+++ Love it!! Leaps & bounds ahead of Onkyo's own app!
by TheDocTrex on 2013/04/20 00:33
I tried a couple of different apps for my TX-NR818 and have to say, this one is just pure awesomeness! The fact that this shows the current status etc on the phone and gives you full control of your AVR is perfect. Thank you to the creator of this app. The $4.99 was definitely worth it!
Does exactly what I need it to do
by Lincoln30 on 2013/04/19 04:18
I got the tx-8050 stereo recvr and tried the Onkyo remote 2 app but I don't have a tv hooked up to my stereo recvr so the Onkyo app is pretty useless for many of the functions I need to use. This app let's me see what I need to see on the iPhone screen to operate the functions of the recvr and Internet radio ( especially pandora) almost as good as the grace remote app for my systems using grace tuners. Perfect since the recvr is located in my living room and I'm listening two floors up on my roof patio.
Works really well
by ApolloCreed77 on 2013/04/14 13:04
This app is so much better than Onkyo's Remote 2 App. It can do everything and as a result it takes a little while to configure, but works perfectly!
Onkyo Should Hire This Guy!
by FELCAnderegg on 2013/03/24 03:12
I've been patiently waiting for an Onkyo remote update that would make their app work as well as Oremote. One finally came, BUT it had NO changes or upgrades of any sort that I could find. They need to hire this guy! A combination of their user interface and his ability to get my 3 networked receivers to give their all would be amazing. Thanks for investing so much energy into this!
Very buggy
by Jipillo on 2013/03/16 21:08
Doesn't always work. I usually have to start it with Onkyo's app and then it may or may not function. When it does work, it's pretty slick with all the things it can do. I can't recommend it though.
On?
by rperronejr on 2013/02/25 05:00
Doesn't turn on the receiver. No problem turning it off, and other operations, but won't turn it on. Can't recommend an app that is a remote, that won't even turn the unit on.
Yes, best so far
by S-curvy on 2019/02/01 19:14
For years, I have resisted this app because it is the most expensive ($5) of the bunch and Onkytroller was satisfactory, the official Onkyo apps are nearly useless. Well O-Remote is much better. The functional controls, even the internet radio & DLNA, are all directly available from the main screen! It offers nearly all the functions available on the regular remote from anywhere you have the WiFi connection and it reconnects almost instantly when the phone screen no longer shows the app — the official app takes long seconds every single time the screen shuts off or is switched to any other app. Having the ability to control my AV deck and the different zones via my phone from anywhere within my WiFi range is awesome. UPDATE 01 Feb 2019: I figured out the disconnection issue, it’s not the app, it’s the AV deck losing its connection. Solution is to unplug the deck for 10 seconds and then restart it. It will re-initialize the Ethernet connection & and the App will work great again.
Best Onkyo App so Far
by E46333 on 2017/01/14 16:17
I have tried most of them and ORemote is my favorite. Recently Onkyo's own app has improved quite a bit. However ORemote gives a lot more control over you receiver which others don't. The interface is quite good. One feature I would request is highlight current setting in the pop up menu so you know what it's set to. Also it works with the 2016 RZ series. Otherwise very happy with app.
6 stars
by clintsomething on 2018/07/06 21:15
I had been having a lot of frustration with my TX-NR626 and the Onkyo remote very sporadically working. It would occasionally not find the receiver, and when it did, would rarely connect. I tried fixing my phone, internet, resetting the receiver, and nothing helped. Downloaded this app, problem solved. Thanks!!
Working Great Now
by Carnutzblues on 2017/04/17 15:02
Worked fine with my TX-NR737 for over a year, then had issues. Fixed now. The Onkyo version is a total joke. Any issues with software can usually be fixed with unplugging the receiver. Hope he continues to keep improving this app, as it works!
TX-1009 functionality dropping
by MoovinTarget on 2020/05/08 21:36
The earlier releases allowed more zone 2 & 3 control. I can no longer use equalizer, sound mode, and other features on zone 2. I can no longer change the Net application in zone 2. I cannot select stations in Pandora and slacker in zone 2. I must intermittently browse to Receiver IP address to keep remote connected to receiver after running other phone apps.
Terrible App Support
by Greg9999999999 on 2017/09/20 02:14
The developer can’t be bothered to answer support request. I have repeatedly submitted support request both through the app itself and the Facesmash site. The issue I’m having is periodic invalid IP errors on app launch and periodic app freezes. I have read that other users are having the same issues. If the developer has passed away and the app is in a zombie state, it would be nice to know. I would certainly send flowers if he has passed......,
Best onkyo option
by Arasco85 on 2017/05/27 17:50
This app is awesome! I can control all 3 of my zone inputs, volumes and a lot more from this app. If you have a onkyo or integra receiver this is the way to go!!!! Don't waste your time with the onkyo or integra apps as you can't control multi zones.
Used to be awesome!
by Jrichkc on 2017/09/04 16:54
I have used this app for a few years. When I first got it I could even turn my receiver on via the app. I have lost function with each update and it is currently borderline useless. I would gladly pay again to have the original version I used three years ago. Any chance we can do that? I will happily change this to a five star review if it started working like it used to.
Better than the original!
by JFC3 on 2018/04/21 21:54
Much more detailed and clearly designed than the Onkyo versions. Thanks for the updates! My 810 & 646 both work beautifully.
Fantastic!
by The googoomuk on 2019/02/25 22:05
So much better I deleted the Onkyo factory app! Finally I can easily control zone source and volume from anywhere around my home!
Awesome Onkyo Remote App
by The77Ronin on 2017/03/31 03:49
So convenient to have a remote app for your receiver on your phone, and one that works well, and has great function and features.
Crash crash crash
by TalkenRain on 2019/02/12 16:17
This use to work great but somewhere along iOS updates and/or hardware updates, it stopped working. I see this app has not been updated in a while. I suspect that has something to do with it no longer working. Bottom line, it use to be the best but now it’s useless!!!
Could be...
by Ricco S on 2020/06/01 20:25
a great app, but it crashes consisitently upon opening. The very few times it doesn't, I really enjoy the functionality and user interface. Too bad the app is nearly unusable due to it's crashing. Robert (Developer): are you addressing this? If not I will request a refund.
Unstable to the Max
by Ernie is annoyed on 2018/02/04 01:13
I’d be happy to change this review if I’m doing something wrong with this app controlling my TX-NR676 on an IPhone 6 running iOS 11.2.5. Paid $4.99, downloaded app. Touch icon to open. Every time, app screen opens and then disappears immediately back to basic home screen. Wasted $4.99.
Unusable
by Ginger Biggs on 2018/05/26 19:32
Looks and sounds like a great App but crashes within 5 seconds of opening every time. Onkyo’s own app seems to be working again. Only $5 but I might as well have wiped with it for all I’ve gotten out of this purchase.
Not working for me
by rvcta on 2018/10/01 02:25
I wish it would work, but every time I open it. The app comes up and disappears in 3 seconds, I have tried unplugging the av receiver with hopes that it would reset, but no luck yet. I will rate again but it dose not work at this time.
No longer works
by Arbym313 on 2020/01/05 13:58
I used to love this app. I upgraded my receiver to TX-NR686 and the app no longer works. Always crashes on receiver connection. Don’t waste your time or money until there are updates.
zone 2
by nacho6463 on 2019/01/10 03:27
I just bough the app but I can control Zone 2 only, Main zone is missing...
App crashes immediately
by Jm458697 on 2020/05/03 16:09
When I open the app and select the receiver the program immediately crashes.
Unless Your Receiver is 3+ Years, Don’t Bother

Used to be a great app, but it won’t with receivers released after it’s last update. The app will just crash once it detects a receiver doesn’t recognize

Dont work with 787?
by Rogerio.Coelho on 2019/02/03 04:36
In oldies models ok. The best. But dont work with new models; 787
Awesome to have but UI and button placement could use a bit of work.
by Feedmeister on 2011/06/04 18:06
This app is very useful and has many features. One thing I noticed is that the button placement is kind of weird and not intuitive sometimes. There is a lot of open space on some screens while others are so packed in that it takes a long time to figure out what you want to do. I think if the developer spent some time working on UI and ergonomics of button placement, it would be a very superior, useful, and fun to use app. Also, it'd be nice to be able to vote up and down songs on Pandora while using the Internet radio. As is, it's a useful app, but not very pretty. I know the developer probably has been focusing on features and updating the app to work with newer AVRs, but I think he should consider design as well. Other bugs: playback stalls when using the app on some screens and connectivity is flakey. I'll connect and use the remote for a few minutes, but then after a few minutes, the remote will stop working. I'm using the nr609. In any case, thanks Dev for making this app. I wish I spent less time in the app and more time listening or watching stuff, but the buttons and spacing make it difficult. I've only had this app for a night, so I'll update it again if I feel differently after a few days.
Fantastic For My Onkyo!
by dtsdig on 2011/11/21 16:25
This app had been a fantastic upgrade to my home system. Over the weekend, I finally installed a set of speakers in my kitchen so I could start using Zone 2. I quickly found out that in order to be able to control anything in other zones, I had to use ORemote. Onkyo's official app lacks so much functionality, I can rarely put its simple interface to good use. Their app has no controls for zones at all. Why would a company make a wifi remote that does not allow you to control the music in another room? Anyway, so far ORemote has been totally solid although I have experienced an occasional crash when I've gone back to the app after a while of not using it while the receiver is still playing something. I am just digging in to all of its in-depth features and it has made using multiple zones really awesome in my house. Over the next month or two, I'll be adding a set of powered speakers in my bedroom and will start putting Zone 3 to work. I'm glad I have this app to allow me complete control no matter how I have everything hooked up. Nice job and keep the updates coming! For reference, I use a TX-NR808.
Works great with just a couple of small bugs
by drbobl on 2013/01/02 22:17
Using this with a new Onkyo TX-NR 3010. It finds it fast and is fantastic for controlling the extensive audio choices. Also allows using Pandora net radio without turning on the home theater projector to navigate! It has different screens but equal ease of use on iPhone 5 and on iPad. Overall a great app! Thanks a ton for developing it. Way better than Onkyo's own app. Cons: sometimes hangs making it unresponsive to touch. Closing it and reopening solves it. Sometimes fails to update the screen. This may be Onkyo not updating data, but leaves the screen data on old song, etc. Wish list: ability to make 12v control on 3010 turn on zone 2 trigger always, so my outboard power amp would turn on when the receiver is on, independent of zone! Onkyo really blew it on this, considering you need external for 11.1 sound. This app makes a very complex receiver and surround setup much more manageable! A must-have!!!
Must have app
by Jerzdawg on 2013/07/03 23:34
Easily one of the best purchases I've made in the app store. This app paired with my onkyo 809 have made everything so simple.

FANTASTIC APP!
by RSVideo on 2013/02/12 02:53
My Onkyo 906 AVR, is now 4 years old, time passes quickly in the electronics world! So I thought I would just see what this app could do. It's "supported", but for far fewer features then newer models. BUT, I am very happy I tried it. Amazing for the features it does support on my old AVR. Now I can at least change the radio channels, volume, while in a different room, unlike the "line of sight" remote. I wish my AVR supported all the goodies that this app can do, but I'm content with what it can do. This developer has done an incredible job with this app, I'm still playing with it to find more things it does support, and there are more things then the dev lists for my model AVR. If you have a newer model and have a home network, then you should get this app, working on both my iPhone 4 and iPad 3. Great job!
Impressive. Second review dropped to ONE STAR!!!
by John in Montana on 2014/06/17 18:42
I don't write many reviews. But this App deserves a review. I've only had it a couple of days and I am learning more and more. I got it for my Onkyo 809. It controls everything I need and more. Much more. It controls my IPod, I have it connected via front USB. Also controls my Sony Blu Ray. I have total and complete control over all three and I'm still learning. If I had a sony t.v. It would control that too. Well worth the $4.99 I give it 4 stars because I'm still new with this. If it controlled my 61" JVC t.v. And directv it would be perfect. I will update in a few weeks. John This is a follow up to my original review. At first it was very impressive and worked flawlessly for about two weeks. Now it will not connect to my receiver. I also cannot make it connect manually. I've unplugged my receiver a couple of times as suggested, but this did not work. Final solution, uninstall and reinstall the App. This did not work. I am changing my rating to a single star. Hopefully they can get this issue corrected. John Here's yet another follow up. Jun 17, 2014 In my previous reviews I had several issues with connectivity. Well, the App. Quit working altogether. I've deleted and uploaded a new App. Several times. Nothing!! I've set it to auto detect, nothing... I did it manually, still don't work!! Mr. Worne really needs to fix theses issues!! . Till then, don't waste your time or money
Outstanding Remote App
by zenpadawan on 2013/01/16 06:16
If Onkyo isn't paying the developer, they should: the fact that there doesn't seem to be an equivalent third-party app for Marantz receivers is the only thing that keeps me from switching to that brand for my next receiver. Yes, the app has had occasional connection problems in the past, but they've been fixed quickly. The ability to rename the inputs (i.e., "Apple TV" instead of "Cable/Sat") is great, as is the access to nearly all of the receiver's settings. I just discovered a new AirPlay button in the app; my TX-NR3008 doesn't have AirPlay built-in, but I pressed it anyway and discovered that it opens up the iTunes library on my iDevice and allows me to stream them to my Apple TV. Nice.
Great Remote
by grandiris72 on 2012/01/19 07:06
I love this remote. I have had no problems with the software since I downloaded it about 3 weeks ago. I am using it with an Onkyo TX-NR509. I have found myself to be using this remote more than the one that it came with for two reasons. One, we keep our receiver in a closet and we have to leave the doors open in order for the other to work. The second is i can see what is being shown on the lcd screen on the app. In my experience with this app, it seems to have a bit of difficulty locating the receiver, I have to restart the app a few times to get it to work. The information on the app seems to lag behind what is actually playing. Aside from those two issues, its a great app and i'm glad I bought it.
OK, but layout is badly designed
by Dude0u812 on 2015/04/19 00:33
Ok, the good news is this functions better than Onkyo's iOS app. That said, the design of this is pretty badly done since the developer is starting from a blank slate. All the buttons are small and close together, which means it's hard or impossible to safely hit what you intend to tap. The "5-way" I some good example - easy as pie to screw up. If you are running something like Pandora it's catastrophic- there's no way to go back. Also, it would be really great if the layout design went back to square one. How about the "home" page with big, easy to hit buttons of the stuff I need 80% of the time? Use other tabs for the esoteric setting I rarely if ever need to see or touch. This could be such an awesome app with some common sense applied, why not do it?
great idea - latest version has bugs
by a student and reviewer on 2011/03/24 04:10
I was using this version and it worked fine (with an Onkyo TX-NR807), but the latest release apparently has some bugs: it seems to loose the ability to connect to the Onkyo when the Onkyo is in standby state. I.e., the problem is that when the Onkyo is in standby state, this app can't connect to it any longer in order to power it on. Once I manually hit the button on the Onkyo, all works well, but previous versions of oRemote didn't have this issue. More information: The onkyo is at the latest firmware release, and there were no Onkyo firmware updates since this problem started happening (in fat the only thing different is that I upgraded to oRemote 1.2.5). If this bug is fixed, I'll gladly update my review.
Almost replaces on screen controls/setup
by Dookie 2x on 2012/12/30 21:12
It works amazingly well and is perhaps a little too feature rich for a remote but the upside is you can more quickly access the setting (audio, video, input setup, zones, etc) than if using the Onkyo remote included with the receiver and especially if you have to navigate the on screen menus for some settings. That being said, there are some on screen settings like DLNA, internet radio, etc that this doesn't replace. It would be great if it did. It could also use an owner's manual or some documentation since this is more detailed than the Onkyo app and also covers areas that aren't easily found/associated to features in the Onkyo owner's manual.
Best Remote App Ever!
by That1Guy on 2011/05/15 04:46
I've tried several other remote apps, and they have never really worked for me. Then I tried this one...this app will allow me to put my Onkyo remote, my PS3 remote and my Sony Blu-ray remote away permanently. Not only will this app power on my receiver and allow me to change virtually every setting I could ever want, it also allows for HDMI-CEC control of my Blu-ray players when set up properly on the setup menus. It was up and running in 5 minutes. Simply amazing. Best $5 I've ever spent. Now all I need is my iPhone and my TV remote to turn the TV off. It turns on automatically when I shut off the Onkyo!
Still Works!

I downloaded the latest version of ORemote and was frustrated because it would not connect to my Onkyo 509. After trying many things including the manual configuration per the ORemote website and unplugging my receiver and router, it still didn't work. My last resort was to delete the app from both my IPad and iPhone and then load it again. I really didn't want to knock my review down to 1 star because it used to be a really good ap. Well, much to my surprise, after reloading the apps on my devices, it now works! So, give that a try, it may work for you too!
Sweet!

I've never written a review for app before but I was so pleased with the developer's speed to respond to my questions and the quality of the app itself that I felt it was necessary. This app blows away the OEM Onkyo app by leaps and bounds. The fact that it works on both the iPad and iPhone is awesome. On the iPhone it is perfectly useable but on the iPad is where the fun begins. Because of the extra space everything is laid out much better. Couple that with very frequent updates and super fast email responses from the developer (at midnight no less!) make for a great app. Buy it. Buy it now! :)
Great app

I bought an onkyo receiver to go in my basement. After a home remodel I want to hard wire kitchen and deck speakers into it. My dream was to be able to control the unit via my network. The free onkyo app was good but this one seemed better. Although I was very happy with it. I soon learned that I could not change the a/b speakers via the app (and the standard ir remote and free app did not either). Saddened and frustrated I emailed the oremote developer who published a new release the next day with full a/b control! Who could ask for better! Oremote and it's support gets five stars from me
Good app...almost great

I REALLY like this app.....when it is working. I have a difficult time getting it to connect to my receiver and when it finally does if I leave the app to do something else and then comeback it will not reconnect unless I completely close out and start the app back up or turn my phone's wifi off and then back on. Is this a glitch with the app or something with my router or a setting that can be easily fixed? I don't know. The onkyo remote app seems to stay connected much better although it has much less ability to fully control my tx6nr609
Extremely helpful

I bought a onkyo 809 AVR, this app works with all the functions. I was having one glitch with my ipod cutting in and out on play when the remote is in reciever mode. I emailed the author and he set me up with testflight to load a beta fix and it works perfectly. This controls my home theatre, my outside pool zones and all the other rooms in the house. I have a 2 Tb herd drive on my network and can access ANY movie or song i want with this remote. I am in audiophile heaven. Great job Robert both with the app and the support. Thank you Tom L
Love this app!!

My home remote volume quit working so I decided look into app to control my receiver through the free ones that onkyo offers and couldn't get them to work? Could be my lack of ability? So as a last attempt I tried this app and was able to get it working through the manual input mode as the detection wasn't able to find my receiver. Once I got it working I couldn't believe how good it is!! For the price it's awesome and I definitely recommend these guys!
Awesome

Initially, I had a small issue where I got errors each time I used the app. This was due to the settings on my router needing to be adjusted. After that, I have thoroughly enjoyed using this app. I tend to use it when I'm in the mood to read a book on my iPad and to play music. The app works beautifully for being able to quickly change channels, skip a song, or even like/dislike a song which is nifty. Definitely a 5 star app with a responsive author.
