DLNA Player

HD Streams

  • "...about it until December. I opened the app by mistake and find my HDHRP listed in the device list....ITS STREAMING my cable card! The iPad can't handle the HD channels but it does just fine for the regular cable channels. I adjusted the buffer size to 40MB after noticing some lag and that was just what I needed for a consistent streaming. Only thing missing for me is a cable lineup guide to know..."

Love Love

  • " volume, zone 2 source select, surround sound, radio, Sirius sat ect... This app can do just about everything that you do with the remote and going online to the IP address of the radio... I love it and use it over the original... It may not be as simple as the original because it has more functions on it.. This is a great purchase to compliment the marantz... I'm using the marantz..."

Exceeded Expectations and they have Great Support

  • " in relation to the Marantz AV8801. They too thought it was a "must have" and a steal at the price. I don't usually buy apps (or write reviews for that matter) but this one exceeded expectations and they have great support too. Really opens up the processor to make the inner workings very accessible. Tremendous help to have so much adjustment and on the fly control in an easy to use..."

Very nice to have a stand alone app that does not mirror from a PC or Mac that I would have to have running. Could use a little more polish, but all in all a very good app at a reasonable price with knowledgeable and..."
