Can’t set to record remotely

They need to work on the App massively! The great thing about the dual sat feed is you can plug your two sat feeds in allowing record one watch one I’ve moved to this from sky as sky pass no benefits to existing customers! They only look after new customers. So I felt it was time to move the interface is not as smooth as sky but then I didn’t expect it to be! You do have to go to menu to switch between satalite and Saorview and you will also have to plug in a separate memory usb to use the record function but all this aside it’s still good value I just don’t understand why they can’t incorporate the hard drive into the box making it way more viable to most! Saying that sky basic package per year €500 per year as opposed to this box one off all in €210 by the time I’d bought the hard drive for €50 half price telly for a year then free for evermore and then and tv based apps for movies as we want to watch them!
It’s well worth €159 and it can only get better to be fair! It will take getting used to the remote after 20 years with sky but I’m not giving them 10 grand for the next 20.

Simply doesn't work

Just gives error message. Delete and move on. For what it's worth Saorview connect needs a double satellite feed when most existing connections to the current set top box only has one feed. €158 for the box then another €100 to get a second satellite cable. Too expensive and not worth the effort. Also you have to swap between satellite and saorview in the settings menu if you want to view the Irish channels and vice versa. Pointlessly difficult.

Totally useless - won’t even open

I downloaded this app to iPad and iPhone6s. Every time I launch it (numerous times) I get error message ‘NO INTERNET CONNECTION NOOOOO! TRY AGAIN IN A BIT’. I am connected to home Wi-Fi on both devices as well as 4G on phone. I have deleted it and do not intend to load it again. Did you even test this before release?. So disappointed.
