Programme your Sky Remote Control for other Sky digiboxes
You can program a Sky remote control to operate Sky, Sky+ or Sky+HD digiboxes.
Obviously standard Sky remote controls do not have the Sky+ recording function buttons. However recordings can actually be played from the planner using a standard Sky remote controls by highlighting and pressing “Select” twice and stopped by pressing “Backup”.
You require a Sky remote control version 8 or above. This is usually found on a sticker in the battery compartment.
This may not work on cheap “clone” replacement Sky remote controls.
