They’re not the first Blu-ray players on the market to harness the ability to be controlled by the iPhone, but nonetheless Pioneer’s latest players, the BDP-330 and the BDP-LX53 can just do that. In order for you to dial into either Blu-ray player you’ll need to connect it to your home’s network via Ethernet or purchase Pioneer’s WiFi dongle. After that, it just as simple as downloading their iControlAV app and punching in your SSID and WPA password. Convenient if you can’t find your roommate, but my experience tells me to stick with the included physical controller.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
