      Do you mean this:

      Press TV
      Hold Select and 6 (you'll see two blinks)
      Press Select

      And to stop the remote from doing this:

      Press TV
      Hold Select and 6 (you'll see two blinks)
      Press Select

      Edit - Just noticed it was posted above !

      My bad, I thought he meant he had now got it to work.

      If you have the 9f remote control the it is possible.

      With the remote in TV mode if you press Select and 7 simultaneously until the LED blinks twice then press Select the Power button will turn Off/On both TV and Sky box.
