    I was changing volume earlier and I noticed that the volume display was a lot like the TV's volume display... then it occurred to me that it WAS my TV's volume display. Somehow my Sky remote control 'knows' what brand and model my TV is and is behaving kinda like a universal remote control.

    I'm freaked out! Can anyone explain this?

    No, it's a Hitachi 42PD5200. Just got it last week. Not sure how long Sky's been using the TV's volume control for.

    It's part of the installation procedure to set the remote up so that it operates the basic controls of the TV.

    When I got Sky+ installed, the installer setup the Sky+ remote for the TV - perhaps yours did the same without telling you.

    Ahhh. I guess the installer must have done it without telling me!
