Problematic/Dangerous behaviour of Device Vol control :!:

Post by EB1000 » Mon Apr 29, 2019 5:45 pm

Hi

I'm new to Twonky. I just purchased a lifetime license and overall pretty happy with it. However, when I use my laptop to play and control my server music using my Denon AVR-X6500H AV receiver, I noticed that it is very easy that the user by mistake turns the AV receiver's volume to the MAX position. It has happened to me and activated the receiver's protection mechanism. Luckily, no speaker damage was done.

There should be a totally different control interface for AV receiver or any device that includes a power amp! There at least should be a setting to disable volume control of a specific device! A slider with mute and max vol buttons is a very bad idea for an amplified device..

Are the developers aware of this issue?

Thanks
