Doesn't work too well. Doesn't always sync with the sky box so the recorded programs list is often out of date meaning I can't watch what I want on upstairs TV connected via rf 2. And can't find a way to delete when I have managed to watch something. Would much prefer simple arrow pad and coloured buttons so I could control the onscreen display as if I was using the standard remote. On the plus side, remote record generally works well
Great! It's come along light years since i used it last. Love it. My sky remote broke and this app allowed me to control the box sufficiently for ages. Love how you can get real time TV guide and planner organisation that links up with the box. Very handy. Keep it up. You just need a way to record shows without looking them up the the guide almond with fast forward and rewind abilities and then you could replace the remote completely.
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?
Full if bugs since update This app is full if bugs since the last update, links record and channel choice non HD channels to HD - very frustrating. Record does not always work, constantly gas to re link to the box- sort it out sky
I think this app is a wonderful idea esp. as I am disabled & watch my Sky in my bedroom. The only issue I have is that the sky connection seems to only last approx. 24hrs so I have to struggle to get downstairs everytime to renew connection, this can be terrifying for me! Besides that I love it!
Slow, crashy, reconnects all the time The concept of this app is great, unfortunately it feels like the people who design it don't actually use it themselves. It takes forever to find the sky box, frequently losing the connection, all I want to do is turn the bloody box on, why the constant waiting?
