My Remote Recorder application got a bad review earlier because the search was too slow. It turns out that the section of the Sky website that deals with remote recording is actually down. There’s not really a great deal I can do to make my app work when Sky is down, but I really should have had some more sturdy error handling in place.
As I was in the middle of testing a couple of quick changes Sky seem to be attempting to fix this now, and the service keeps going up and down.
I’m pushing out an updated version now with a more helpful message in the event of a communication failure.
