Are you using the original XMC-1 Harmony codes, or the new ones I described in the other thread? If you're using the older codes, you wouldn't have any problems, but you'd have fewer capabilities. I think this app is using the IP version of the new codes, which is why there are new problems.
Rereading your description, I'm not sure this is the problem, I don't think the iPhone would work and the iPad not if you had the firmware problem. I'm sure we'll learn more about this App, and the new firmware may cleanup some issues.
That's possible. I'm using the original codes. I seem to recall mention of a code change long ago on an early firmware. Perhaps there was an option to opt out and I chose to stay with the original to avoid hosing my Harmony One. One point of correction....neither device 'works'. The iPad has a Z2 volume slider that isn't available on the iPhone. That slider is able to make VERY limited, but useless, changes to the XMC. If they have changed codes midstream, I'm assuming there will be a Harmony reprogram in my future. Not the end of the world, but can't imagine what would prompt such a decision by Emotiva. Whatever
I just realized....my Emotiva remote for the XMC works perfectly. Obviously they aren't going to reissue codes that would break the factory remote. Also, the 'optional' firmware I was thinking of was probably on the UMC-1. All firmware updates on the XMC have been monolithic as I recall. I don't know what the problem is, but it's pretty useless on Z2 for me at this point.
Update: Firmware V 3.1 has resolved this issue for me. All works as expected now. NICE!
