Sky HD - Changing Remote Codes

Does anybody know how to change the code on the Sky HD box/remote?

The problem I have is my HD box is in the same room as my Sky+ box, so when you change channel on the Sky+ box it changes the channel on the HD box. Worst still, when you delete programs off your Sky+ planner it also deletes the programs on the HD planner.:mad:

I've been told it can be done and somebody I know saw a engineer do it (but didn't bother watching how). I phoned up Sky asking how to do it but their reply was "There is no 'official' way of doing it"

Can anybody help?

Hi Dazza
I have both boxes one above the other.
You will need this device:
http://www.skyeye.force9.co.uk/skyeye8.htm

1.It Plugs into RF2 on my SKY+ box.
2. Using the supplied instructions, covert your existing SKY+ remote to use the codes of a standard SKY box remote. (Instructions are on the skyeye site but are included with the product)
3. Once the remote is paired with the skyeye it will controll the SKY+ box without touching the HD box.

I use a Harmony 885 remote but I have managed to duplicate this on a One for ALL 6 remote.
Using the instructions provided I am able to control both boxes without affecting the other.

I hope this helps a bit

Cheers Iain, I'll place an order and hoefully solve the problem.:smashin:

I am surprised Sky didn't think that people may have 2 boxes in the same room/cupboard...


...oh, hang on, it's Sky....nope, I'm not surprised:D
