It would be really useful if channel numbers were in the planner as well as the guide. Channel numbers still not in the planner. Frequently loses connection to Sky box. Update: Remote:- keying 315 for Film4 HD takes you to Film4 SD, keying 342 Film 4 SD takes you to 315. Brilliant!!!!! Update: recent update which brings syncing notification, too frequent, keeps informing me of clashes which do not exist. Today I had to sort out a clash between 3 programmes being shown on Sunday 12:40, when only one show is in my planner for that time. The sync update really screws up the app. It seems to have a thing for Sunday 12:40 am. It is always at the top of the 'scheduled' list. Did I say brilliant!!!
Works better than the Sky+ box planner as it actually alerts you to a partial program clash where the box doesn't and can resolve the clash. It is a little harder to navigate the TV guide but the planner although different is just as good. In addition, you can remotely control the box (over your home wifi).
it forgets about your sky box if you go outside. you can reset the phone and it can't find the box after. you can even uninstall and reinstall. no joy. next day, works again until you go to the shops and come home. utter rubbish but there's no competition so you just hate sky a bit more every time. and that's just one bad bit of the design.
As others have stated, the 'searching for Sky+HD boxes on network' just doesn't work so cannot use the app to schedule recordings on the fly. The freesat app is much better (if only it would work with sky..). BTW I've tried manually updating the sky box firmware as described but that makes no difference. Are there settings in the router that need to be changed?
Blank Sky sign in screen on my phone (Wileyfox Swift 2X) so unable to use all features of the app. Works better on my old Samsung GS2. Same problem on all Sky Apps (Go, Score Centre)
I like it! Its very easy to use and is definetly recommended for sky users! One thing to mention would be to have a volume control for tv. That would be superb. Overall a great app
