Connecting the app to your YouView set-top box:

Once the app is connected successfully, you will then be able to view the TV Guide and set recordings on your YouView box.

Remote recording requests should be set at least 15 minutes before the programme starts.
Please note your selected programme will be recorded if it does not clash with other recordings, and you have space available on your YouView box.

Nexus 7 Good but does not list what the box says that it's going to record just what has been asked to be recorded from the app. So if the remote was used to set a recording up then that recording is not listed on the app. Which is a pain.

Sluggish The guide is so slow to scroll it's nearly unusable. Shame, as otherwise it would be an excellent app
