Remote

Set up Sky stream on TV and paired the remote following the instructions on screen. All good until I tried to get the remote to control the volume and the screen froze. Tried several times but no luck. My other half rang Sky this morning and spoke to a most unhelpful advisor who told him to keep doing what we've done several times and then told him I can't help you anymore znd put the phone down !! My Sky app seems to have given up too, as I can't access my account details. Not impressed at all

Yeah, unfortunately Sky Stream can be glitchy for some people. 

The best advice is to turn it off at the wall for 10 minutes then power it back on and try again. If it's still not functioning then a factory reset is probably the next best thing to do. This will let you start from scratch, activating the box, connecting your remote and connecting to your broadband.
