    Okay guys, hoping someone can give me some advice please.

    Yesterday my sky remote stopped working. When I say stopped working, I mean it no longer appears to operate the sky box properly. It still does the volume on the tv no problem. I changed the batteries to see if they were the issue but im still getting the same problem. When I press the channel up button for example, the lights light up on my thomson sky box but it just doesnt do anything. Its almost as though ive lost the link between the two.

    Also, if its broken, do I have to purchase another one or do sky provide replacements?

    Any ideas anyone?

    Thanks in advance.

    Glad to hear any advice because my Sky+ remote on the 160 box has done exactly the same thing. Don't know if there is a master reset of the remote?

    I have just had to repower my Sky+ box because the remote operation was very erratic and temperamental. Its ok now.

    i think a call to sky is your best bet they helped me with a similar problem. from memory
    point remote away from box
    press tv
    hold down select and red til it flashes twice
    dial in 999
    and press sky
    i think that resets the remote but check with sky first i would hate to mislead you

    Hi Guys,
    Spoke to sky. Had to power my box off for 30 secs and turn on again. All the buttons on the sky box seized up aswell you see. After another 60 secs, the remote started working again. Bizarre but there you go.

    Thanks for the responses.

    Simon
