What's New in Version 5.0.2
Fixes to bugs.
Rename boxes and general improvements
I find the app very useful and use it all the time. My only issue with it is that I'm never sure which of my sky boxes I'm connected to. When I select the box I want to connect to I have to choose between model numbers, and I'm damned if I can remember which is which...worse for people who have two the same.
Please Sky have a way of naming the boxes something I want to call it, like Livingroom or Kitchen...then better still a fast way of switching between them without going to the settings!
Other than that, more suggestions would be good, maybe based on some previously given facts like: I love anything F1 and hate anything Eastenders and I like anything presented by Stephen Fry...
IP settings - thank you Lil4255!
I am grateful to Lil4255's post of 23 Dec, 2014 which propmted me to look at IP addresses. In our case, if we re-installed the app and also re-booted router and devices we could get everything to work initially: but after a while we got the familiar Cannot connect to Sky+ HD Box message.
So I started again but noted the IP address of the Sky+ box from the Networks menu when it was initially turned on. Then I logged into the router and 'reserved' this IP address for the Sky+ box in the LAN/DHCP/IP Address Reserve settings in the router. Precise interface details will vary with router (ours is a TalkTalk Huawei DG533).
All has been well for over 24 hours now. It seems that the Sky+ app does need to be closed on my iPod to ensure the turn on/off from standby function continues to operate (channel switching functionality seems to continue anyway), but I can live with this.
It is now very useful for me. Only 4 stars because it took quite a lot of time getting this far!

Fix for not connecting to Sky Box
Recently updated to iOS 8.1.2 and app no longer connected to HD box via several devices, no previous issues.
Support from Sky has fixed this so if it helps - turn off your router, unplug Sky HD box, turn off devices/cut the router connection. Turn router back on, turn Sky box on, connect devices to router and try again to connect to Sky HD box through the app ONE BY ONE. Seems to be a conflict of IP addresses and this simple fix will reset the connection.
With thanks to Kenny at Sky 👏
