Also does the new Sky HD box use different remote codes to the older Sky+ box?
Somewhere on here is the powerpoint presentation about Sky HD - has a picture of the remote in the later pages.
Here are the details you wanted.
Looks slightly nicer,it wont be getting any use now i have a Harmony 885
freakin' unbelievable how thoughless sky are! They pat themselves on the back for adding green button for planner, try talking to customers with sky + guarenteed 99% would say it is freakin annoying there is no direct button to personal planner, I have pressed the box office/ services/interactive buttons a total of 2 times in 2 years for cryin out loud!
Plus I am going to sue James Murdoch via National Accident Helpline for repetitive strain injury making me put my pin in every 5 seconds to watch a 15 movie I recorded. Why can't we switch that c$%p function off! I bet his box at home doesn't have it when he's watching the frakin playboy channel...
Wonder when the codes will be on the harmony site
Could be a while?
You can just teach the Harmony the codes using its IR receiver. Will take a little while though.
crazyboy, I'm sure you can turn off PIN protection for age restricted content.
I have to agree about the interactive button, never use it, bould have made scence to be able to programe them. but then again it where the money is!!!
HELL NO! EVEN IF YOU SWITCH OFF PIN PROTECTION WHEN YOU TRY AND WATCH A RECORDED PROGRAMME THAT IS RATED 'BEFORE WATERSHED' IT ASKS FOR YOUR PIN! THERE IS NO CHILD WITHIN A FRICKIN MILE OF ME. APPARENTLY J.MURDEEK HAS A BEE IN HIS BONNET ABOUT FAMILY PROTECTION...LETTER BEFORE B-HOLE.
As the remote is the same, one would assume the codes are the same.
You are so right, there should be a direct to planner button on RC.
snap - do you think we will need to change anything or will it possibly work with the original sky+ details stored?
not necessarily I have a brand spankin new tv that has only been out 3 weeks and they had the codes on there
Reason for question was I have already a Sky+ box in the room and would like the HD box to use different codes?
Logitech will almost certainly have the codes up VERY fast.
Love my Harmony
Yep it's a reet fookin shiite do that sky can't get over the money makin shiite they religiously stand by and give their loyal customers (me 6 years at full package and now multiroom) something that would make us smile.....
fair enough leave the money makin buttons at the top......
but give us a nice windows media type button at the bottom or near the + controls......for planner !!!!!
arrrrrrrghhhhhhh I really like the sky remote.....but am gonna get an all in one......
