Airplay and Home Receivers
Hi all. I'm not sure where to post this topic so hopefully this is the area.
Many home receivers now support Airplay and also provide their own Apps to control the receiver via your ipad/ipod (Denon AVR1912 for example).
HOWEVER, what I cannot find is a receiver that supports this scenario:
1)Receiver streams iTunes music directly from PC/Mac via local network connection
2)iPad App allows me to choose/change the songs being streamed from step #1 above.
Now, there are PLENTY of receviers that do #1...but I can't find any that do #2. All the Apps control are the receiver functions like volume, input selection, bass/treble, etc. Real basic receiver stuff.
Can anyone recommend a receiver make/model that can do 1 and 2? Or, is there some inherent reason why NOBODY can do this?

If the receiver supports AirPlay, you should be able to select it from within iTunes as a second speaker.
You should also be able to control the music with Apple's Remote app via Home Sharing.

There is also an iPhone and iPad (not universal) application called "iControl 2" which controls not only the audio and video characteristics, but also things like the Internet radio stations that the receiver can stream by itself. It's a free app.
You should be able to use Apple's "Remote" application to change songs on the Mac/PC. It's also free.
