      sky+ remote record app on iphone4

      hi
      i have 2 sky HD boxes at home. because my old main HD box is now in the TV room and my newer HD box is in the lounge, when i remote record using the app it sets my second box in the tv room but i want it to set the main box in the lounge.
      how can i change the app settings so that when i remote record when away from my house it will be the new sky box that is set and not my older one?
      many thanks

      answer now found.
      for anyone else interested there is hidden away on sky's site (search for remote record), a setting showing your box that is set up to receive remote record. you can at this page change the receiving box to any other listed box in your package.

      Re: sky+ remote record app on iphone4

      To get around this problem, I set up two additional users on MySky - let's call them myusername.box1 and myusername.box2 - and then registered both for the remote record facility, associating one viewing card with myusername.box1 and the other viewing card with myusername.box2 - so now I just login using the relevant username depending on which box I want to send a remote record instruction to.

      This is what I do and it works like a dream. To make it even easier I use the same password on them both so I only need to alter the username when logging in.
