Hi Jennifer,

Yes, sorry should have asked before.

The code should be 1613.

Best Regards,

Richard
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Sorry Richard,


 


Still no luck, when following the procedure to accept the code, the red light on the Sky box doesn't light up, as if no connection is made.


 


Although I have a tv which is ready for HD, I am still using a Sky+ box.


Could this be the problem?


 


Regards


Jennifer

Expert:  Richard Hill replied 3 years ago.
Hi Jennifer,

Are you using these instructions:

1. Cover the front of your Sky remote, or point the remote away from the TV.
2. Press the tv button.
3. Point your Sky remote at the TV.
4. Hold down the select and red buttons together for a few seconds.

After a few seconds of holding down the buttons, the light at the top of your Sky remote should flash twice.

1. Enter your four-digit remote control code.

As you press each number button, the light at the top of your Sky remote will flash once. As soon as the fourth digit is entered, the light should flash twice more.

1. Press the select button.
2. Cover the front of your Sky remote again, or point the remote away from the TV.
3. Press the sky button.
4. Point your Sky remote at the TV again.

Your Sky remote should now be able to operate normal Sky functions and TV functions. For example, try pressing the vol +/- buttons on the Sky remote to check whether the TV's volume changes.

Best Regards,

Richard

Hi Richard,


 


Nearly there!


 


Every thing was going fine, up to the volume responding as you said, even the mute button fine.


Then trying to use the tv guide and other features, nothing would work.

Hi Jennifer,

 

Unfortunately that may be the limit of the compatibility. Sky do say:

 

'The Sky remote does not support more advanced TV functions, such as:

 

Picture within Picture

Dolby surround sound

Nicam Stereo settings

TV tuning menus

 

These functions need to be controlled with your TV remote.'

To clarify this probably best to call Sky on 08442 411735.

Best Regards,

Richard

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Hi Richard,


I don't class the problems I am having e.g changing programmes or TV


guide as a more advanced TV function.


How ever, thank you for your support, I will contact Sky tomorrow.

Hi Jennifer,

Yes, sorry I couldn't be of more help, but as far as I can tell this is an issue for Sky.

If my responses have been helpful a positive rating would be much appreciated.

Richard
