You can control the box, if you memorise and count and use the app. I did
write a detailed message on here on how to do it.
For example, go into the app, Recordings, Recent Recordings, then count down.
If your program is number three, then press TV guide on your box and go right
four. Once to get you in to recent recordings, and the other three to get you
to the third programme. The programmes are in a grid on your box, three by
three. They don’t wrap either, so go across three, then come down one and
you’re on Programme six. Etc.
It’s not ideal, but I can do it as a totally blind person.
All the best

Do you mean the new skybox Q. I have upgraded mine it is accessible sort of,
you can watch things on your iPad if you record them. But I am afraid you
can’t control the TV with your iPad. I am told that they are aware of this. I
do believe though the old sky HD is accessible.
This was my argument last week. Sky won’t give us the old sky box. So we have
to have this new Sky Q box which is quite accessible. So I have to be content
recording things to my iPad. But at least I can watch them where ever I am.
Till they sort it out.
I hope this helps you a little.
