    I can't believe that the ordingary sky remotes won't work basic functions like changing channel, its shocking. I've now gotta fork out for 2 new remotes!

    Also one of my magic eye's refuses to work with sky+. Worked fine with old sky, but now won't work even though the red light is on.

    So that's another £50 for new accessories, plus an optical cable as well.

    :(

    Hold on, pretty sure you can make the orginal Sky controller control Sky plus by doing this:-

    1) Press <SKY>
    2) Press and hold <BLUE> and <SELECT> until the led flashes
    3) Press <2>
    4) Press <SELECT>

    I think thats it anyway.
    If you want to control your original box again, you press <1> in step 3.

    Jules,

    you've got my hopes up, but that sequence doesn't seem to work.

    Do you know where you found out about it?

    Don't worry Jules, I've just found it on google, its press <TV> not <sky>, although its only seems to be the TV Guide button that works, can't manually type in a channel or use search and scan.

    I'm gonna do a bit more hunting.

    By the way, it will only change the channel up and down
