Connecting the app to your YouView+ set-top box:
You will need to connect the app with your YouView+ box to use the remote record service. To do this, go to Settings > Device Management > Mobile Devices on your YouView+ box and follow the instructions.
You will be presented with a unique code that is valid for 2 minutes which you will need to enter into the YouView App.
Once the app is connected successfully, you will then be able to view the Guide and set recordings on your YouView+ box.
Remote recording requests should be set at least 15 minutes before the programme starts.

What's New in Version 5.0.6
A number of bug fixes.
Updated Application Terms and Conditions.
Room for improvement
This app is extremely useful if you want to record a programme but you're away from the box. It is very useful how you are shown the different versions of the same programme when you go on one, such as repeats, HD versions etc. However, once you have sent a programme to be recorded, you can't delete it via the app, so for example, if you record a programme and then realise there is an HD version, you can't cancel the original version's recording. If you could do so, And also be able to record entire series from the app, this app would be faultless.
Brilliant app for youview box.
We have talktalk and this app is perfect, it allows you to record the streaming channels too but only one at a time it will switch it over if you're watching another Internet channel.
It's much better than using the EPG on the box, you can see a lot more channels and times of programmes, it's also faster than the EPG on the box.
I can see this being used a lot.
What's here works well, scope for much future development
I echo the comments of the others awarding 4 stars. The main advantage of the App is ability to record. To move from a marginal 4 stars to a solid 5 stars. The app needs development to allow:
- review items recorded or planned
- watch on mobile device recorded items (or at least those without copyright issues as virgin media do)
- perhaps operate the You view box as a remote control
