      New Sky+ Remote not working

      I've just bought a new Sky+ remote and it wont operate my box. The light on the front of the remote lights up so I presume it is working ok. Also my other sky+ remote still operates the box fine so i know the box is still working. Does the remote have to be programmed to a particular sky box number or should all remotes operate all boxes? If so is it just likely that infrared is not working and the remote is bust afterall? I've tried resetting the remote by removing batteries and also replacing them with brand new ones but nothing has helped. Please help! Thanks in advance.

      there are different versions of sky+ remotes, but i'm only aware of compatability issues when using via a magic eye as opposed to the sky box direct.

      What sky+ box have yuou got and when you ope the battery cover what rev number is the remote?

      It's a REV.6 - URC 1650-00-B00. The model number of the sky box is Thomson 127b146 Sky+ 160. Hope that helps. Thanks.

      Sometimes, after fitting new batteries, you have to reset the remote:
