    Hi,

    Just had Sky+ installed ... I tried using my old Sky remote with the Sky+ box and was surprised to find that it didn't work!

    Found the following trick @ www.treadmore.com/sky+
    "Press 'TV' button, hold down 'blue' key and 'select' until red light flashes twice, then press '2' followed by 'select'.

    Tried this, and it does work, however it only enables some of the buttons on the old remote. Things like the numeric keypad and cursor keys still don't work.

    Has anyone tried the above and got different results or does anyone know of any other method?

    Cheers...

    That's the best result you will get with the standard SKY D remote.

    If you want a second remote (Tvlink use perhaps) then you'll have to buy one from SKY or another dealer.

    Yes it is annoying but I assume it was done to allow both a SKY+ and a standard digibox to operate in the same room.

    Is it for a SKY supplied TVlink?
    If so when did you have it installed?
