TuneLink Home

What exactly is TuneLink Home?

  • The TuneLink Bluetooth audio interface for home audio is the first complete solution that provides a wireless audio link AND a media remote control interface between your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch and your home entertainment or sound system.

TuneLink Home Set Up

 

I was able to plug the TuneLink Home into my computer via the included USB instead of plugging it into the wall as the cord wouldn’t reach on the TV I was testing out. To get started you need to pair the device to Bluetooth on your phone. Once connected, a pop up will ask if you would like to download the TuneLinkHome app, a free app.

After the app has downloaded, you need to click on “My Remotes” to set up each device like TV, Projectors, VCR, CD, Home Theater System etc. This sets them up to act as the remote on your apple device. There are 17 different component options including a custom button with 80,000 IR pre-programmed remote codes. This step was pretty easy, you just need to know the brand of component.

I first started with my TV to get connected. First find your brand of TV on the available list, then you can give that device a custom name if you want. You then select your theme or style of what you would like your remote to look like. There are several different “skin” style options to choose from. I choose Gray Matter, just a solid gray background (see third picture above).

In hoping that I set it up correct, I tested it by pressing the power button and sure enough I was able to control the TV through my phone. Yea! I was able to set up my DVD and Bose Sound System as well. But how do I get music to stream? This I couldn’t figure out and this is where it got frustrating. After trying different ports on the TV, I was able to get the music streaming from my phone to listen to on my TV!

    Foosball…will have to check into that. This sounds really interesting. I had never heard of it before, but it sounds like set-up went relatively easy for you. I like it when products are user friendly and help us organize our lives and technology. A great way for you to be able to have all your remotes available through one device.

    Wow, the future has finally arrived… every time I see technology like this come out, I can’t help but be a little amazed at what we can do today with a computer smaller than a deck of cards. To be able to control all of my electronics in one place would be fantastic (except that I’d probably have to upgrade my electronics lol) and eliminate so much annoyance from misplacing controllers. Thank you for the review, it looks pretty simple to set up.

    I have been searching for one thing like this to work with my iPad and iPod. I’ve tried other audio devices, but have been disappointed. I’d love to try this.

    Sounds interesting, IF a person has these electronics, which I don’t.

    This sounds like a great new electronic product. I like the idea that I can use my phone as a remote on the items I don’t have a remote. Thanks for the great review!

    we are always losing a remote control for something it seems, so this would be fun way to have an all in one remote using this technology.

    This looks like it would be great for playing music in the kitchen! We prefer having music play all the time. 😀

    Very cool – especially for those with nice audio equipment but all their music on their iTunes! 🙂
