I'm very interesting in seeing the iOS app updated and expanded to work with the RMC-1/1L. The current app does not work at all with my iPhone 12 Pro, although it did work (mostly) with my previous iPhone 10S (XS).
An extension of the app to setup the processor off-line would also be great. At this point, an app to control and setup the unit is really required to keep the Emotiva processors competitive. I would also be willing to pay a fee for the app, if that would make developing it more appealing to Emotiva or a third party.
Are there any current efforts or plans along these lines?
They do have some nice, new headphones.

Ooops... My bad... I was thinking about other remote control options... like the Harmony remote... which operate via IR.
What I said is true for ANY method that uses the IR codes.
However, the IOS App is network based, which is a slightly different matter...
Since we haven't looked into that very much so far I defer to user experiences...
However, the IOS App IS a third party App... so you might want to contact support for the XMC-1 App and ask about an RMC-1 version.
I too think a well functioned Android and iOS app would be a boon.
As an update to what Keith says above, however, Harmony is actually far better used with a cable and to not bother with infra-red at all.
This requires a Harmony Hub enabled remote, and a 2.5 to 3.5mm audio cable going from Hub to XMC-2.
The Harmony remote communicates with the Hub via Bluetooth. The Hub communicates with the XMC-2 over a cable (Using one of the two IR blaster outputs on the Harmony Hub direct to the IR blaster output on the back of the XMC-2)
No "pointing" of the Harmony remote at anything is needed, so the imprecision of Infra Red can be disregarded
XMC-2 (Firmware 2.2 - initally ok, now a few total lockups. Is the audio somehow better? Just louder? I now listen at a lower volume than previously (-25 to -30 vs -20 to -25 before updating)
