    I'm still trying to picture in my mind why you're using the remote app...

    Using that app makes no sense. You should probably find out if the manufacturer of your sound system has an app that would be useful.

    Hello, all, from a new member and a new iPad Air 2 owner.

    Judging by your responses, no offense, but maybe you don't really know what Remote does. Here is the deal: I have a big music library on my Mac, that I listen to using iTunes to pick tracks, artists, albums... you name it. I also like to listen to the Internet radio. Now, I discovered I could listen to this music over my stereo sound system, via Wi-Fi. Great. But when I'm anywhere not near my Mac, i need to keep control of iTunes. This where the app. Remote on my Air 2 comes into play. With it, I can pick tracks, play and stop and adjust volume from anywhere in the house. But Remote sometimes has a hard time just connecting to my musicde library or the Interet radio. Hence my question. Thank you.

    There's nothing else you can really do to control iTunes on a remote iMac from the iPad. I agree that connecting to a large library can be super slow.
    The only thing I can think of and I don't know if this would be better, would be to turn on Screen Sharing in the Mac. Then there are numerous VNC apps for the iPad that you could use to view the Mac's entire desktop.
