    I have had my KV36FS70 for about a year, and one thing really p**ses me off is teletext.

    It has a feature which doesn't not automatically change sub-pages, it just builds a list at the bottom which which you can select using the cursors.

    Don't get me wrong.. This is a FANTASTIC feature and can be very useful.

    But, I use a Sky remote and whilst it has cursor keys, they can't be used for the TV.

    So, when you use Teletext, you have no way to change sub-pages. I have to use my original remote for that, which is a pain..

    Is there any way to make the TV automatically change sub-pages?

    Is there any way to make the Sky remote cursor keys work for the TV?

    Is there a workaround which will atleast allow you to use the teletext funtion without the original remote?

    Give Sky a ring (and be prepared to hold). They have loads of different codes that aren't published in their digibox instructions which may do the trick.

    I don't think that the Sky remote will ever be able to do this...

    The I don't think that the cursor buttons work for ANY TV, when the remote is in TV mode..

    You can see that the LED on the remote doesn't even flash when you press the buttons.

    I have the Panasonic TX32PB50 and can select the subpages by using the volume button on my SKY remote.

    Hope this helps
