      Finally the Sky+ App on the Android had been updated and it works like owners of iPads and iPhones have been used to for the past few months.

      Which model for you have have and does it have the new firmware?

      I managed to get it working with both my STBs last night. Obviously the Android phone/tablet and each STB need to all be connected to the same LAN.

      Just playing a little more this morning and I see that it provides a friendly method to check your account, service status, Sky's apps and your planner.

      I am not sure what you mean there bignick8t3.

      Do you mean that it works or not?

      I have just been chatting with a friend about something else and she too has been using the Sky+ app on her Samsung Galaxy SII. A few issues, but they are mostly 'operator error' rather than the app playing up.

      He means it doesn't work. It just Force Closes.

      I got this the first two attempts to connect from this tablet but it's working now. :-)

      Re: Sky+ App for Android

      Good Morning Guys, i joined this site just to post here,
      hoping to get some help.

      I currently running Sky + HD Box with firmware R005.053.70.15P
      and sharing is on.

      My Sky+HD Box IP is 192.168.1.153
      My Nexus 7 IP is 192.168.1.90
      My Samsung Galaxy IP is 192.168.1.144

      i currently have a TP Link access point acting as a bridge as my source of connecting my HD box to the router.
      everything is linked to the BT Home Hub, but my app cannot find my box whatsoever.
      i have forced a update, i have reset the network settings, i have removed the access point from the box and put it back.
      nothing works.

      can anyone help?

      Try checking under 'Parental Controls'.

      Using your remote control press <Services> 8

      Next enter your STB's PIN.

      Now select the 'Connections' tab.

      Ensure that the option to allow the Sky+ App is set to 'On'.
