    Hi guys, hope you can help.
    After my Pace sky+ box gave up the ghost 3 weeks ago, have had a replacement Amstrad box. The problem I have is that I use a philips wireless video sender to watch Sky in the bedroom, and with the pace box, the remote worked fine upstairs, changing channels without the need for the IR 'magic eyes'. However, with the amstrad box, the remote doesnt work at all, even if I try the magic eyes. The remote itself seems fine as I did the 'fire the remote in front of a mobile phone camera' trick suggested in a previous post and replaced the batteries just in case.
    Even the universal philips remote packed with the video sender that worked with the pace box does not work with the amstrad.
    What I have noticed though that using the remote downstairs is a bit sluggish changing channels, I'm having to press the buttons a couple of times, the red light fires instantly on the remote but not the IR receiver on the sky+ box.
    Anyone any ideas/thoughts of what the prob is and where I go from here?
    Thanks in advance for any advice/comments
    Cheers
    Taz
