      Controlling SKY+ from another room

      Ok well heres the setup, i've got a Digisender and have had for a few weeks working flawlessly to transmit SKY+ into another room. Just today however I have had issues with the IR control aspect of it. For some reason it simply doesnt work when I use the SKY+ remote in the second room.
      Any suggestions as to why it suddenly stopped working?

      Does the remote from the second room work if you try it in the room with the digibox? If it doesn't it could be the batteries have gone flat. If you have two remotes does the one that works in one room work in the other room?

      If it isn't the batteries it might be a loose connection or a plug with a loose connection. You should check the connections.

      Check the IR repeater on the Digisender sender unit by the Sky box. It may have fallen out of line with the Sky box's IR receiver.
