      Thanks - that fixed it. You are right - it's something to do with the two messages being sent at once. Did you ever find any codes for the alpha numeric keys you used to find on the Sky Navigator remote?

      If you've made any improvements then please feed them back in the form of a patch. Short patches can be included in a code box on the forum or use pastebin for longer text files.

      I did run a scan and found many codes which didn't appear to do anything although they may have had a function if the Sky box had been in a different state. I only found 3 codes which have not been implemented on the Windows (C#) remote but I don't remember the actual codes. One of them mimicked the low battery condition on the IR remote, another rebooted the box (either directly or through watchdog reset failure, I'm not really sure which). The last only degraded the analogue video output though it may have had a beneficial effect on certain displays, I didn't find any codes for half speed playback or seek to mark.
