The Onkyo Remote Control App will turn any iPhone or iPod Touch into a fully-functional, touch-driven wireless remote control that will integrate with Onkyo's upcoming range of next generation networked AV receivers, as well as many current and older networked models.
The App will replicate day-to-day operations such as altering volume/balance/mute/input selection/listening modes etc. Gesture control will also be incorporated and owners will be able to browse Internet Radio station lists as well as content held on Network Attached Storage.
The App will offer full control of most of the functionality on Onkyo's upcoming next generation AV receivers as well as much of the functionality on current 8 series AV receivers. Owners of 7 series and older AV receivers will be able to use the App to control basic receiver functions such as volume up/down, changing inputs etc.
Compatible Onkyo AV receivers will need to be connected to a wireless router via Ethernet. Further details about the Onkyo Remote Control App will be released in early 2011.
