    Has anyone tried the Sky + box with a programmable remote yet?

    i.e. Can anyone confirm that it uses normal IR, instead of the **USELESS** IRDA used in other Pace boxes? (Like my Pace cable box!).

    Its just one last minute panick before I take the plunge....

    Cheers,

    Chip.

    No it doesn't. I had to re-learn all of my sky panels on the pronto because of it! <img src="mad.gif" border="0">

    Have to agree with all of the above; normal IR but not the same as the normal Sky digibox (WHY????). Had to teach my Powermid's remote all the codes again. <img src="mad.gif" border="0"> <img src="mad.gif" border="0">

    Was waiting to find this out myself. Just done a search on <a href="http://www.remotecentral.com" target="_blank">www.remotecentral.com</a> and apparently the answer is "yes".

    Yes, I can confirm that the sky+ codes can be learnt by programable remotes - I have all the sky+ functionality on my Pronto. If you want, I can supply you a copy of my CCF.

    Do you know if the old Sky remote will operate the basic functions of the new Sky+ box (obviously not the recording functions)?
