I've recently switched from virgin and wish I hadn't. As Steve says there are
workarounds with the sky Q app but it's limited whereas the virgin tv anywhere
app is totally accessible.
I'm with sky now for 12 months so maybe they'll improve the app in that time.

So are you saying that you can control your sky Q box with your iPad then?
If that’s so then I shall give it a go.
thanks for that.

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.

i believe from another list that you can quite easily control your sky box
from the app which is accessible, how does one do this and what can one do
with the app once connected
