      Using Sky Remote go to Interactive / Sky Customer Svce/H/light Sky remote/Select your Tv--Samsung /Select model number on List, then follow Menue and it should work Ok.

      That shows you how to program your Sky remote to control your TV. I want to do it the opposite way; control my Sky+ box with my Samsung TV's remote. According to Samsung I need a code from Sky.
      I have a feeling, having searched online for an answer, that Sky are reluctant to give this code for some reason.

      You are right, i mis understood your requirements. I have a Samsung 37 inch LCD --I didn`t know you could control Sky from Samsung remote, if you can, I would be also interested, in how to do this.

      Got a response from Sky

      "I have checked with our Technical Support team and can confirm that your Samsung remote will not control your Sky+ box"

      Not sure I quite believe that but, if it isn't right, I can't understand why they would be reluctant to give the relevant code.

      I need the same question answered. I have a friend that uses their tv remote to control their sky hd box. There must be a way. Would get the info from my friend but they are not using a samsung tv.

      My Toshiba VCR remote will control my ordinary Sky STB (I can set the timer on the VCR to tape a specific Sky channel,say 106<Sky1> & change channel) but it wont work with my Sky+.
