    The Sky+ box is not reacting the the remote control. I've tried another remote on it as well as a Pronto remote. Also unplugged it for several minutes before powering it back up. The controls on the front panel work fine, just won't receive a remote signal.

    Anyone any ideas what's happpened?

    The sensor could have failed I suppose, if it was a simple bug then a reboot would have solved it. You could try reloading the OS in the hopes it is a software issue but you never really know until you try.
    It could of course have accumulated some dirt or dust which is blocking the signal or maybe the signal is being masked by an external source but I assume you have held the remote a cm in front of the sensor:)
