      Philex remote "SLX RC027" how to work on Sky Boxs?

      Hi all,
      I have a Philex remote "SLX RC027" which controls a TV, Sky & Sky+ on three seperate buttons, has any one got it working with Sky box's.

      Straight out of box it supposed to work with Sky 'got Pace Box' (Standard) & Sky+ 'got Amstrad latest version', but it does not work.

      In the instructions it does not deal with the Sky box programming at all only the TV codes.

      How do I make it work with Sky?

      Thanks in advance.

      Silly question but are the batteries fitted correctly?
      BTW Why would you want one of these and not the genuine article?

      Batteries ok, it lights up and flashes LED for code entry.
      I have a SLX magic eye and this is the remote that comes with it, it cost's 7 and not 25 for offical one.

      Also the Philex remote "SLX RC027" I have tried it through the magic eye and direct on Sky box's no joy at all, but offical remote works through magic eye and direct.

      Sky have updated their remotes over time I think the latest are rev 8 for standard rmotes and rev 6 for Sky plus. But I think this is only to do with the TVs they will control.
      Sounds like the Philex is faulty.
      Have a look on Amazon, you should be able to get a proper one for 10 or so.

      Cheap enough to chuck in the bin or sell to some unsuspecting grunt on eBay.
