After a long and painful process, I finally managed to make the streaming function of my Yamaha work. My main objective was to be able to unplug the ugly iPod cord from the front (why do not they make these connections at the back¿?). Then, be able to close the front garage door of the AVR and use the streaming function instead of the iPod. However, as soon as I started using it, I have noticed 3 main issues:
1) Sound - It is already bad enough to listen to music through an AV receiver but, this streaming functionality seem much worse than the direct connection from the iPOD. Is there a possibility to make any adjustments in the Computer (ex. Equalizing) or using any program that will allow improving the sound?
2) Navigation - I have downloaded servii but I do not seem to be able to make it work. I can navigate through it using the Yamaha mobile app but it does not play the songs. However, when I change to the WMP server then, it works ok but navigation is much slower.
3) Laptop connection – Finally, another issue that I do not like is that I need to have my laptop connected via cable in order to make the streaming work; it does not seem to work if the laptop is connected via Wi-Fi. This means that I cannot listen to music and use the laptop in the house at the same time (unless I use the laptop in the office room where it is plugged to the rooter).
Any help on the issues above will be very much appreciated.
