You need good wifi or this just won't work well.
If you are having connection issues or dropouts you need to look at your wifi.My other PR5s are hooked to regular receivers and they play in perfect sync.
I have a good receiver hooked up to good speakers already, so Play-Fi to the rescue!
Phorus tech support was great -- one email explaining my problem got a response with 2 options -- they'll send me a new one ASAP, or click on the link to try a USB hardware update.Long story short: the USB update worked and I was up and running in 30 minutes.The DTS Play-Fi app is not perfect -- it works fine but the user experience needs improvement (it's confusing) -- but technically it works great.
I REALLY WANTED FOR THIS TO BE A KEEPER, AS IT IS A GRAND IDEA AND IMPROVEMENT IN STREAMING QUALITY, BUT IS POORLY EXECUTED:(.
If you want to use this to listen to music, you better first get ready to fight with the most poorly written software app I've ever had the displeasure of being tricked by.
Just a difficult device, frustrated me and I wasn't impressed with it's sound so I returned and found a different method.
Come on guys update these Apps what are you thinking of releasing this as is!Amazon you sent an American power supply to Australia as you know it doesn't fit our power points and there is no easy way to contact you to rectify this, i will be thinking twice before ordering thru you again!
Also there should be a quick-jump alphanumeric scroll like there is in the local device Music category.Secondly, when an album or folder finishes playing, the app immediately disconnects from the PR5 and you have to click the Search Device button, then go back through choosing the device/MediaCentre/Music/Artist/scrollscrollscroll..etc to get back to where you were, which is ridiculous.
Also, if I'm playing a song from my media centre and I go to choose another song before the current one has finished, 50% of the time it disconnects me, all music stops and I get the Search Device screen again.Are these issues that are being worked on because while I enjoy Pandora/iHeart/etc I really bought this to control media on my media centre and currently its failing dismally at this.As an adendum to this, i've noticed that it doesn't display every song in a folder on either my media centre or my Samsung Galaxy S4 which the app is on.
