    I have just had SKY plus installed and I have a second feed from the back of the SKY Plus box (RF2) fed to an extra TV upstairs with one of those remote eye receiver things.

    I dont really want to have to purchase another sky plus remote unless I have to but I just wondered if its possible to use a normal sky remote with sky plus in a remote room ??

    Thanks

    I knew you could do it.......

    To reprogram the sky remote to control the sky+ box.

    The sequence is:

    TV
    Blue+select led flash twice
    2
    Select
    Sky
    Now the sky remote up and down channel buttons change the channels on a sky+ box.

    To revert back, enter this sequence again but press the zero button instead of "2".

    http://www.satcure.co.uk/tech/digicode.htm

    I have also used the MACRO button to switch the TV onto channel 6 (SKY) when I press the SKY button.
