      My Sky+ remote will not operate my SKY+ box

      I have 3 sky+ remotes which were all working fine with my HD box, however box stopped working so I have borrowed my boyfriends sky+ box, one of my remotes continues to work and operates the box but the other 2 dont, however the red light flashes. They are both rev 8 on sticker in battery compartment, one is silver sky+ remote the other standard grey. I have tried the blink back programe check on one of the non working remotes and code is 065 but I am groping around in the dark really.

      I have magic eye to 5 tvs in house and 2 boxes. All worked fine prior to change of box from HD to Sky+. now only one of the sky+ remotes works......help.

      If you have replaced the Sky HD box with a Sky+ box, I take it you have switched the RF2 Outlet Power ON in the Service Menu. On the remote ( at the digibox ), press Services, 4, 0, 1, Select. In the Installers Menu, go to RF Outlets ( IIRC ) and switch ON RF Power Supply, remember to Save Settings. You will also have to set the RF Channel to what it was on the Sky HD box ( if you can remember ). The Default Channel is 68, but you may have changed that on the old box, and it may be different on your b/f's box..

      Hi thanks for your response but the RF2 outlet is set on my standard sky box which has not been replace. All those settings have stayed the same. The lights are red on the magic eyes so power is reaching them. One of my original remotes is still working but 2 have ceased. I can only presume they were set to operate with codes for sky hd and not sky+ but dont know how to change them.

      Try resetting the 2 remotes to operate Sky+. Note the procedure is different according to which remote you are resetting ( HD remote is the flatter silver one ).

      See Q3 here:

      You may also have re-input the codes for your tv's.
