    Hi all.

    I have a descrete "on" code for a sky+ V2 box (i.e. no matter how many times you press it the box just comes on and stays on), has anybody got an "off" code????? I don't mean the macro sky button plus the power toggle which I'm not overly keen on as the hard disk needs to spin up and down everytime which can't be good....
    Anyone?

    There is no discrete "off" for the Sky v1 or v2 boxes (you have to use the macro). Spinning up the hard-drive is not worth worrying about. Seriously.

    Hiya.
    yes I was beginning to think that was the case but I do wonder why there is a descete "on" code? Maybe night does follow day in this case.....
    Back to the macro then......

    Hi Graham,

    I use the IR sequence of the 'Sky' button followed by the 'Power Toggle' to turn the Sky box off.

    Regards,

    Steve
