Remotely control the most important settings of your Onkyo or Integra receiver from your Mac. OnkyMote is compatible with all Onkyo and Integra network-enabled receivers released during or after 2010.
Turn device on/off
Change input mode
Note that the receiver must be connected to the same local network as your Mac for this to work.
Compatibility issues were resolved so that it now works with all 2014 and newer models

Doesn’t do zones - I need it to do zones. The whole point is not to have to walk back to the receiver when I am in a place. Many of those places are far away from the receiver. How can I hope to listen to music in those places? Well, they are defined as zones and there are speakers there. That is the main use of a remote control - to access something remotely - and this app doesn’t do it. In fact, it has a built in link to a FAQ where it tells you that if you want to switch zones, get an iPhone and then get an iOS app that does that.

Simple controls in your Menu Bar - Opening OnkyMote actually enables a Menu Bar item; no icon appears in the Dock nor do windows open like full-blown “apps.” Perhaps some users became distressed when nothing seemed to happen upon launching it. OnkyMote does what it claims, offering simple input selection and volume control. Power on/off sometimes goes stupid and you may on occasion need to quit/reopen to reestablish communication with your receiver. While I would welcome added functions in light of the price tag, this is nonetheless a handy item to have with your integrated living room or whatever configuration brought you here.
Does what it advertises but... - The app does what it advertises, but it would benefit from a few more features. Here is what it does not do: - Does not allow tuning of radio - No zone control
It Works! - I have a TX-NR636 and the app immediately detected and allowed me to control my receiver within seconds of launching. Everything works and works well, no issues so far!
Repoted an issue and it was fixed after a few days - I didn’t actually see a response for support that the issue was being looked at, but I do see that the app was updated, and mine now works. Changing my response as this now works as advertised.
Works perfectly - I was also initially momentarily confused as to where to see the app functions until I looked at the top of my screen and saw the receiver icon. Does exactly what I was looking for, a quick primary function control without having to look for my Onkyo remote or open an iOS app. Thanks!
