    I have been trying to program my Sky+ remote to control my new Hitachi screen. I have used the method in the manual and their code (0145) which on first viewing appears to work. The remote will turn the screen on and off and control my volume which was what I wanted. The problem is that the input shown on the Hitachi now shows composite as opposed to RGB. When you go into Services, Guide etc. on the Sky+ the screen immediately flashes and shows RGB. The remote then refuses to control the TV. Any ideas please. THe Sky+ is an Amstrad and the remote is the latest version.

    That is a known Sky+ problem. When the TV button is pressed, the output reverts to composite. Goes back to RGB when you press the Sky button. Nothing you can do about it. Might possibly be fixed in the future with a software update.

    Just off the phone to sky and have now solved the problem. Seemingly there is a new code for this model. She took me through it and it worked fine no more switching to composite feed. The code is 747 and you input it slightly differently to the way my manual says you should input a 4 digit code. Press TV, then select and red together until you get two blinks, then type in 747 and hit select.
