      Ok, that is the DRX890 with the latest firmware version.

      Using your remote, could you press the following please:

      <Service> 8

      Type your STB's PIN then press 5.

      There should be an option there to check that the Sky+ App is able to access the STB.

      Do check too that your phone is connected to your home network, not via 3G.

      If this fails, can you let us know how your Sky+ HD STB is connected to your network.

      The only option on option 5 is sharing on/off
      using wifi only nexus 7
      connecting via tp link access point acting as a bridge.

      Is the 'Sharing' set to 'On'?

      it must be some thing to do with me using an access point as my source of connecting my box to the router.
      however the ip addresses are all within the same range so all on the same sub net.

      i have no other idea.. i have emailed TP Link to see if they have any suggestions

      It should not do, I use a Dlink to connect my box to the main router with no problems. You do have the DHCP server turned off on the TP Link? That could cause a problem.
