    Sky remote codes

    If one of those dont get it going then nothing will

    Alternatively, theres a list of codes on the interactive (at least there always used to be)


    *EDIT*

    Ive just re read the post and realised you mean its not controlling the box. strange one, what brand of box is it?
    Its not enough that I should succeed, others should fail.

    To check your remote is outputting infra red get a digi camera or camera phone and get the view screen up. When you press the remote you should see the light output on your camera screen.
    Thats how we check ir transmitters at work.


    You can also point it a webcam to check output

    it could even be the box itself, the ir reciever may have given up.

    try a neighbours remote first though.
