How To Control The Onkyo Receiver With Your Smartphone Onkyo Remote vs Android 2.3 Onkyo Remote vs iOS Onkyo Remote 2

Edited by Frank Fazio, Bob7055, Alma, Eng

Mostly every manufacturer makes an app for their respective line of receivers. So you may have an app for a certain year or a different app for a different model line. Onkyo has 2 Android apps that are designed to work on all receivers made after 2009 which include models TX-NR3030, TX-NR1030, TX-RZ900, TX-RZ800, TX-RZ810, TX-RZ710, TX-RZ610, TX-NR757, TX-NR656, TX-NR555, TX-SR444, TX-SR353, TX-SR343, TX-NR747, TX-NR646, TX-NR545, TX-8160, TX-8140, TX-8050 and TX-8020. Both apps are pretty much the same, but one is designed for the Android 2.3 .

Questions and Answers

I have the TX-8511 Onkyo Receiver. (Really old, but still works great)?

Is there a way to listen to music using my Samsung Galaxy S5. Most people probably don't have this receiver still operational. I have tried: Don't even know what to try. Trying to connect the dinosaur to today's technology. I think it was caused by: Old vs. New Not sure if it is even possible or not.

Unfortunately you cannot directly connect your Samsung Galaxy S5 to TX-8511. There might be a way to connect an external Bluetooth receiver to this unit, but there isn't an "auxiliary out" on the back... although you may be able to connect it to the CD output. Yes, the TX-8511 is a beautiful unit... I have one myself.

Onkyo AV Receivers - Manual control of each 5.1 speaker?

Which Onkyo app, if any, will allow me to adjust the volume of front left, front right, center, etc.? I want to fine tune the volume levels as my rear speakers are not the same distance from the listening area...the right rear is much further away as compared to the left rear. As a result the sound from the right rear needs to be turned up.
