      Sky+HD Rev.9 Remote on standard Sky+ box

      Hello

      I've just bought a replacement Sky remote control and it's the HD version, the eBay listing said it's the Revision 9

      I've tried the method I've found everywhere on the net to make it control my Sky+ box but it's not working...

      The method I'm using is this:

      Press TV

      Press and hold Select and 'i' together until the LED flashes twice

      Press 1

      Press Select

      When I'm pressing Select and i, the LED doesn't flash twice, only once to register that I've pressed something.

      Has the method changed for the Rev.9 remotes? or am I not able to do this anymore?

      Or is the remote I've bought not genuine and that's why I can't do it?

      Any help greatly appreciated here!!

      Thanks.

      The method you've listed is the one described in "The SatCure Remote Control Guide" eBook and is correct. Since it doesn't work, my guess is that you paid less than 18 including postage & VAT. If that's the case, your remote is likely to be either faulty, a "copycat" without full functionality or stolen. (In the later case it should work so I doubt that's the answer.)

      Nobody can sell a genuine remote for less than the trade warehouse price (unless they are prepared to make a loss) so you need to be wary about what you buy. "If it seems too good to be true..."

      They used to use the yellow button to change between digibox (0), Sky+ (1) and Sky+ HD (2). Don't know why they changed it to the info (i) button. Presumably so that yellow could be assigned to another function. If this is not a genuine Sky Remote perhaps that change has not been implemented. I would try that as you can always revert to factory default by removing the batteries and holding select pressed for thirty seconds.
