Thank you for your quick response.
I have only been using VOX for a few days since I got the
invitation to trial it from ProStudio Masters. Up untiI now, I have
been using both Amara and Fidelia. Both sound great but have some
serious stability issues. So far, I've found VOX to be a better
alternative in many ways and hope that I can continue to use it as
my default player.
Here’s my situation. I have a late 2013 MacBook Pro with a
500gb SSD and 16gb of RAM with an intel i7 processor that I use
exclusively as a music server. It plays through a NAD M51 DAC into
a Classe Twenty Five amp and B&W 802 speakers.
My entire system, apart from the TV screen and the speakers
(which are in the living room) is in the spare room behind the
living room. In order to change a track in VOX, I have to
physically go into the spare room and change the track on the
Fidelia, on the other hand, offers an app for the iPhone that
(much like Apple’s “Remote”) works through my
wifi network and allows me to change tracks and search my entire
library and more from the comfort of my couch in the living room. I
wish to replicate this convenient feature using VOX.
To that end, I was thrilled to see that one could download a
number of “extensions” for VOX, one of which promised
to pair mmy Apple TV remote to VOX and potentially allow me to
control VOX on my MacBook in the next roomfrom my couch in the
Sadly, when I downloaded the Extensions installer, it would not
allow me to check the box next to “use remote controls”
even though I could check the other two options. See below.
Could you please advise whether I can get that checkbox to work
or whether you have an alternative solution to remotely control the
VOX app and the music playlist?
