      Sky Eye Remote Not Working

      Hi there,

      I got a TV Link Sky Eye for the tv in my bedroom fitted today. The picture is fine but the black Sky remote I got with it isn't working, although the Sky+ remote I use in my living room does work.

      Here's the Sky Eye & Remote that I bought...
      Sky Remote Control With TV Link - Watch & Control Sky: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics & Photo

      As I have Sky+ will only Sky+ remotes work with my Sky Eye?

      Many thanks!

      No a standard remote will not work with a Sky+ box.
      ( Not strictly true as some limited functionality can be had by tweeking a standard remote)
      You will need a second Sky+ remote, or carry your existing one upstairs.

      Here you go (copied from the satcure website)
      To reprogram the sky remote to control the sky+ box.

      The sequence is:

      * TV
      * Hold Blue+select until LED flash twice
      * 2
      * Select
      * Sky

      Now the sky remote up and down channel buttons change the channels on a sky+ box.

      To revert back, enter this sequence again but press the zero button instead of "2".

      You wont be able to control the recording functions of course.

      Thank you penrhyn that has done the trick!! The remote now works as it should but without the record function. I can however still access the planner and watch recorded programs so that's pretty much perfect. Thanks again!
