      power button turns on/off sky and tv

      A couple of years ago, I read on here a code that when you press the power button on your remote it will send signals to power on or off your skybox and tv with one press. I think it was Scubbie that posted it.

      My remote has died and bought a new one and wanted to activate the less known feature again.

      I have searched on google and here but no joy.

      I think you had to press select and a colour and then enter a code?

      any would be great.

      thanks

      The functionality is provided through Consumer Electronics Control (CEC) which most modern TV's and devices that use HDMI will support.

      This might be what you are looking for -

      https://www.sky.com/help/articles/hdmi-one-touch-play

      Switch on your Sky+HD box and TV in one go

      With one touch of the sky button on your Sky remote, you’ll be able to turn on your Sky+HD box and a compatible TV directly from standby in one go and switch your TV to the correct HDMI input. We call this HDMI One-Touch-Play.

      Are you are talking about the remote being able to control both the TV and the Sky box?

      Which remote have you purchased?

      Re: power button turns on/off sky and tv

      got the control to work my tv.

      There is a way that when you press the power button on the control it then acts as if you pressed three buttons

      power signal for skybox
      tv button
      power signal for tv

      Try TV > Select+Green (hold for double flash) > Standby > Green > Select (hold for double flash).
      Sky button should switch TV on followed by Sky box 2 seconds later.
      Switching off still requires 3 presses (Standby > TV > Standby).

      That's the problem Henhead knows that there is a way because a Sky remote was set up to do this but it failed. The question is how to programme the replacement remote which I suspect is a different revision - ie it has different firmware - to the previous remote.

      Incidentally my solution uses a Rev 10 remote Firmware version 3497 (983 flashback).
