I want to play my MP3 songs from my computer using a A/V receiver and be able to control all of it using an iPhone app.

Mp3 from PC to receiver controlled by my iPhone

Try WINAMP or XBMC.... XBMC is a more stable program.... But controlling your AV reciever and your PC will mean running more than 1 app...

So you want to be able to control your reciever as well? Might be possible if it is a newer one with a paid app.

If you want to control just the music player itself there are a few options -
1) squeezeplay or squeezeslave on pc with squeezebox app
2) foobar installed on pc with foobar app

there may be more but I have tested the above with my PC and android device and they both work.

you need to try Foobar it is awesome and will do all that you want to do. it is iphone compatible. I use it with my windows phone however.

you just need to use an Remote app that is PnP compatible with Iphone...

I have mine set up so that..... my music is on a server. My HTPC with foobar is connected to a AV RCVR.

I control my music library with my windows phone and the HTPC sends the music to the RCVR via HDMI.

All these are good choices but iTunes and Apple's Remote app can do this too. I suggest it because for many of us who already have this setup, its a pretty easy thing to do without any extra installs of unfamiliar software.
