Setting up remote record via your sky plus box costs nothing, just get a
contract mobile phone, pay as you go can't work, according to sky. I don't
know the registration process on the box, but customer service can help
there.  To set up my sky, go to the www.sky.com site and click on my sky,
then go to register.  Warning! Graphical captor alert!  On the first
registration page, there is a graphical capture. I recommend using webvisum
from

http://www.webvisum.com/you will need to download Firefox to use this
feature, you can sign up for sky using Firefox, then never use it again if
you want.  The command once you have the webvisum add on in Firefox is
control plus six when in the edit field. This will render the graphic, then place it in the clipboard to paste. This worked for me. Then you will need your details like bank account, address etc, or your viewing card number to
register the account.  Hth  access-uk@xxxxxxxxxxxxx

How do you set it all up in the first place then?

Does it cost to use this feature?

Hi will:

You go to sky.com regiser with my sky, then set up the remote record on
your
sky plus box.  This process is not currently accessible.  Once everything
is
set up however, log into my sky on sky.com and then go to tv listings as
Terry detailed in another message.  There is a screen reader version of
the
listings, but due to a screwup on sky's behalf, the remote record feature
is
busted down this route. You need to use the less accessible flashy new tv guide. As Terry said, it's doable, but it's a pain in the neck really. A
case of sky revamping their site and then getting in a flap when it was
pointed out they'd forgotten accessible listings.  In a panic, they put
them
back up, but the remote record feature got busted for that side of things.

what does this feature do?
if i were to get sky plus when i get my own place to live can sighted
people
use the web to send a message to record when they want?
so it is like having that freeview box from portset and setting it to
record
how do i then find the programs after recording them On 18 Nov 2008, at

Good luck mate!

Sky plus is a sky box with a hard drive so you can record
prgrammes. Since
terry's mail re left clicking etc, I have tried this, and it works
well, but
is clunky, so I won't be easing up on sky to fix the problem with the
accessible tv listings on the sky website.-----Original Message-----

Martin.
Well you are kind of right here.
For some reason if you try to remote record from the screenreader
version
of the TV guide it doesn't work, however if you do if from the
normal TV
guide which is accessibnle anyway it works just fine, you just
have to
left click the program then left click the remote record, then
enter you
the yes option.
I use it several times a day and have no issues.

The problem is, as I have written in a previous message, the remote
record
feature on the website is busted for screen reader users.  So I
cannot
remote record without texting.  Watch this space to see if I get a
response
in the next week.

Thing is though that if you dont' want ot use the box directly
recording
stuff is very accessible either via sky.com and remote record or
via
texting.
Personally I use a mix of Remote4 Record and Manual Record, the
advantage

of
manual record being that you can specify the actual channel, so for
example
if I want ITV AD I can tell it to record from 993.
I must say I was reluctant at first to get the box but now taht I
have I
can
enjoy programs that I used to watch when I had the time.

I agree 100% with  Terry's sentiments. The Plus box is a
crackin' piece
of
kit and I'd be lost without it, but the fact still remains that
it is
less
than customer friendly from this lists point of view. Although
I'll
certainly put up with its little inaccessible ways as the over all
product
is a winner for me!
