The suite of receiver control functions available through this app include the ability to select from available inputs, adjust volume levels, mute volume and power the components on and off. With it, users can also select content from connected USB devices and iPods/iPhone, Internet radio, and the receiver's FM/AM tuner, or any other internally available source, with full metadata information shown on the Android device's display. In addition, DSP and SCENE modes can be selected, and all available AV receiver zones can be powered on with the option to change inputs in those zones.

For Blu-ray players, the app can control basic "play," "stop," and "forward" options.

To take advantage of the Android AV Controller app, consumers will need a device with AndroidOS 2.1 or higher, a wireless Local Area Network (LAN) and a compatible Yamaha Network product connected to the same LAN. The Yamaha network products will need to have their Network Standby settings "ON" so that the unit can accept commands via the network.
