Thank you for releasing this ap. I've been waiting for it since I purchased my MRX-510. Overall it's average for a 1st gen ap. One major flaw prevents a better rating. The ap will not power the receiver on. Once the AVR is Powered on it works great, but it's pretty useless if I can't use it to power the AVR on.
UPDATE: June 2018 There haven’t been any updates to this app for two years since I wrote the review below. It sure would be nice after I forked our so much $$$$ for this receiver if the company would support this app. It works, but it doesn’t fit an IPhone X screen for example. An app that hasn't been updated for two years is basically unsupported. I’m rating it down a few stars for that. Original Review>>>>>>>> Other reviewers need to read the manual. This app works perfectly. If you want to be able to power on your MRX receiver over your network, first you need to go into the receiver settings, disable "Eco Mode" and enable IP Control from Standby. If you do that, the receiver consumes barely higher energy in standby, and keeps the network port on and listening for commands from the app. Read the instructions and it works perfectly. I like the simplicity of this app and the way it adjusts it's menus to match the various inputs you have created on the MRX. So far every feature I have used worked exactly as one would expect it to. This is a great 1st Generation app.
This app is totally unreliable. Its Junk software. I'm wondering if Anthem sold out the App development to China like they did to their line of MRX systems. The app finds the 510 half the time. Maybe it the hardware's fault. If you call Anthem they no help at all. It like they don't know what they are selling anymore. But why would they since they don't even make it. I don't even use this app anymore. It's truly wasted space on my apple devices. I've been waiting for the update for months. Hopefully Anthem will realize that poor software is not a good reflection on their products and fix this before more consumers jump back to Japanese manufactured systems with software that works as advertised.
This APP STOPPED WORKING when IOS 13 came out. I accidentally downloaded it as I accidentally deleted the newer replacement APP and low and behold this old APP works once again. I’m so glad as this APP has a balance control and the new APP ( although it has some nice features) never had a balance control. Put the two apps together and you have almost a five star rating. Thank you for activating this APP once again.
Biggest complaint from others seems to be about not being able to turn the unit on with the app. I don't have this problem. You need to set the receiver options to allow the app to be able to turn it on when in standby mode.
Awesome app, VERY fast at picking up receiver off network. Give you quick access to many settings which require more digging from the standard receiver menu. I use wireless bridge and it works flawlessly. WAY better than some of the other AV receiver apps out there.
This app would actually be useful if it let you select which amplifier you want to control. If you have more than one MRX the app randomly connects to one without any way to tell which one you got. App needs to list available amps, allow you to name them, and let you choose which one you want to control.
Worked great until my iPhone upgraded to iOS13. Now it crashes at launch every time. Please fix! I use this app all the time (I would give it a 5 star otherwise.) UPDATE This app no longer works. But download the other app, “Anthem Remote” not the one that called, “Anthem MRX Remote.” So far working fine and does not crash.
I have used this app every day for several years with no issues. But today I upgraded to iOS 13.1 and iPadOS 13.1. Now the app crashes on launch. Apparently Anthem isn’t interested in their customers’ experience with their products. Disappointing.
This app has never worked properly. Didn't think the app could actually be more unreliable than its receiver Anthem 720 MRX, but it is. Won't turn receiver on or control anything. I hope they can fix it already it hasn't worked at all in months.
Worthless app. Crashes as soon as you open the app. Disgusting we spend so much money for Anthem equipment and can’t even use it. The normal remote control’s rubber coating is melting off mine. Great work Anthem...
An app that contains the remote control function of Anthem MRX 710, MRX 510, and MRX 310 audio video receivers. Similar in functionality to that of the factory remote control, the MRX app functions through the local network which allows operation of the remote control from a different room. Commands relating to one another are grouped on separate pages. To change page, swipe the screen sideways. Important notes: 1. Software v1.2.1 or later must be installed in the MRX receiver. 2. Ethernet connection to the rear panel of the MRX receiver is required, and the control device must be on the same local network. 3. The first time that the app is used, the MRX must be powered on beforehand so the app can apply necessary settings. 4. The app can control one MRX per network. 5. MRX can be controlled by one device at a time – if two or more are running the app at the same time, MRX responds to the one with the more recent connection. 6. This app is not recommended if a custom IP or RS-232 control system is or will be controlling the MRX - it is normally best to use one type of network control to prevent conflicts.
