Bye Bye Jremote


Recommended Posts

I'll miss you. But ever since the iPad air 2 with Remote Desktop app, you sadly aren't needed any longer. :-(

 

The air 2's so fast over wifi, it's impossible to tell that I'm interfacing with Remote Desktop. It's stunning; zero lag/delay. Jremote is a nice simple interface but not comparable the Jriver standard interface on the air 2.

I use Remote Desktop to control HQPlayer, usually desktop apps don't work so well on a small touchscreen (big finger versus well controlled tiny mouse cursor). So you found maneuvering JRMC with finger touch control works as well as JRemote? I guess I need to give it a try, clearly I already have everything installed.

Sorry, I disagree. JRemote is very fast on my iPad, responds well to clicks, and everything stays in place. Running JRMC using Remote Desktop was too hard to select (double click was awkward), scrolling overshot sometimes, and running through my library took much more effort and concentration. I also tried Theatre Mode, that didn't work well either, but then my library isn't set up well for that.

 

You're probably much better with small touch devices, I've given up sophisticated / complex things on my phone. My son can text, with his thumbs, twice as fast as I can with my index fingers.

My experience was the same as yours using the iPad mini. But the air 2 has a much faster processor and way faster wifi connection. Jriver can be customized as well according to how you prefer everything.

 

The main reason to get away from Jremote is streaming. I've been playing with Spotify and Tidal for music exploration and jremote can't get me there. The iPad air 2 is killer.

And there we go, I don't stream from the device. It's good to know the Air has significantly more power. I also have a iPad Mini and it is a bit of a dog, plus it drops the connection a lot, particularly when streaming DSD.

 

I do like Remote Desktop, highly recommended for anyone with Windows 8.1 and a tablet.

I have an ipad air2 and still like Jremote on my iPhone better than using RDP. However, RD Client for the iPad and iPhone have come a LONG way and I could easily live with it over JRemote if there were no JRemote. I once considered JRemote mandatory, still prefer it, but no longer consider it mandatory and as Michael says, the ability to use wireless ac with the new iPad and the interface have improved tremendously giving you relatively hassle free total control of JRiver. From my perch since I never need total control, selecting music in the subcategories I have created thanks to Ted_B translate over to JRemote and that is all i need.

Wait, how does Tidal work with Jriver? If there's already a thread somewhere my forum google-fu can't find it...

On Windows JRIver 20 is now WDM capable. It comes with a WDM driver, so you choose JRiver as your pc's default sound engine. Then everything streamed to your pc goes through JRiver. I was watching Netflix in DSD (silly but to the point). :)

Ugh, I thought that's what you were going to say... I literally bought 19 a month ago, don't know if I can drop that much $ on software again just for that function - thanks for responding so quickly though!

? If you bought 19 after July 1 you get 20 too. Just download it.

I did not know that, nor did I really think to go back to the Jriver website after purchasing and getting everything set up (this was the first time I've installed it) - I've actually relied a lot on the Jriver thread here, never their own forums. I will do that right now, thanks again, sorry to get off topic!
