Remote issues in Windows 10

The remote usually connects and works well for me in Windows 10. However, there are a few nagging issues:

The iOS Audirvana Remote won’t stay paired to the laptop once the Audirvana Remote app is not in focus. Let’s say, for example, I’m on the Now Playing screen. If my iPad screen goes off (or to a different app) for more than a few seconds, when I tap the Audirvana app again, it has to reconnect to my PC, displaying the main reconnect screen shown in the first screenshot below.

Not only does it have to reconnect, it won’t go back to where I was. Instead of going back to the Now Playing screen (if that’s where I was before) it goes to the home screen, meaning I have to reacquaint the app to where I want to be every time I pick up my iPad, like “50 First Dates” or something. Maddening.

This all may have something to do with the fact that there are no settings to enable Background App Refresh with the Audirvana app for the iPad. In fact, as you can see from the second screenshot below, Audirvana has no presence in the iPad Settings at all — neither the primary app Settings list on the left or the Background App Refresh list on the right.

Also in the iOS app: If I tap on an empty queue, the app crashes.

One last thing: If I finish a session and put the computer to sleep, as often as not, the Audirvana iOS Remote will not reconnect when I wake the computer up, even though the Audirvana PC app is the only app open on the PC, and the only app I use on this particular PC. I have to close and reopen the Audirvana PC app, or reboot the PC.

Hello @BitPerfect,

Thank you for your precise feedback. Which version of iOS are you using on your iPad?

Hi Damien,

Thanks for responding. I’m on iOS 13.2.3. The issues also occurred on 13.2.2.
