:lol: this is the same as in the manual

What I wanted to know is whether it is possible to use the Volume Control and the Mute buttons on the box itself i.e. controlling the volume of the box.

the volume and mute buttons control the tv you have to program the remote to your tv



Programming the SKY remote to operate the TV Receiver

Before the remote control can operate the TV it must be programmed to do so. A 3 or 4 digit code can be entered to select the correct IR command set, held in the remote control's memory.

There is a database held on chip, in the remote control, which holds the IR codes for around 90 to 92% of TV manufacturers.

The 4 digit code identifies the make/manufacturer. All individual codes stored for each manufacturer are identified by a 3 digit code which is listed below.

The easiest way to set up the remote is to input the 3 digit code for the TV receiver if it is available.

If the 3 digit code is not known then an additional facility allows you to input a 4 digit manufacturer's code which then allows you to step through all codes held for that manufacturer until the correct code is identified.

The very newest TV receiver codes may not be stored in memory and it will not be until the next update of the remote's memory that these TV receivers can be controlled by the Sky remote



TO PROGRAM THE remote USING THE 3 DIGIT CODE:

1. Turn on the TV receiver

2. Press TV on the Sky Remote Control

3. Hold down SELECT and the RED buttons together for approximately two seconds, until the RED LED on the Sky remote blinks twice.

4. Enter three digit code from list for the receiver (early versions now flash twice).

5. Press select to enter code structure (the LED will flash twice if a valid code has been entered).

6. Now press the STDBY button and test other functions.

Repeat if necessary until a code is found that works most common functions.



TO PROGRAM THE remote USING THE 4 DIGIT CODE:

1. Turn your TV on.

2. Press tv on your Sky remote control.

3. Hold down select and the red button together for about two seconds, until the red light on the Sky remote control blinks twice.

4. Press tv on your Sky remote control again.

5. Key in the four digit code for your brand of TV. The light on the Sky remote control blinks twice. If the light blinks once only, recheck the code for your brand of TV and start again at Step 1.

6. Press the standby button on your Sky remote control. If your TV switches off, press select. The light on the Sky remote control blinks twice (code stored). If your TV does not switch off, press tv, then press the standby button. Repeat this (press tv, then standby) until your TV turns off, then press select (stores code).

If at this point the LED on the Sky remote control blinks three times then all possible codes for that make of receiver have been checked. Repeat from step one, ensuring that you enter the correct manufacturer code.

At the end of the sequence, if you see the TV Guide screen, the remote control setup process is complete. If you did not see the TV Guide screen, you must now complete the following steps.

8. Press tv on your Sky remote control.

9. Hold down select and the green button together for about two seconds, until the red light on the Sky remote control blinks twice.

10. Key in the number of the channel on your TV that you use for watching satellite TV.

11. Press select on your Sky remote control. The red light blinks twice. The remote control setup process is complete.

If after trying this, you still have problems, call your broadcaster's help desk. For your broadcaster's help desk number, select the Telephone Numbers option from the Services screen.




Identifying remote TV Remote Control Codes (Blink Back)

If there is not a 3 digit code listed for your customers TV receiver then use the four digit method to find a code that works. The following steps will allow this code to be identified.

1. Press the TV button on the Sky remote

2. Hold down Select and the Red buttons together for approximately two seconds, until the Red LED on the Sky remote blinks twice.

3. Key in 990 on the remote.

4. Key in 1 on the numeric keypad and count the number of times the Red LED blinks. The number of blinks will indicate the first digit of the code

Note that a 0 is represented by no blinks where you press the key. (My code is 081 so first time I tried it on my old Digibox remote I thought it wasn't working! And coming from a software background, I had a weird expectation that 10 blinks would be used for a 0!!!) Niall Gillespie

5. Input 2 on the numeric keypad and count the blinks to identify the second digit of the code.

6. Input 3 on the numeric keypad and count the blinks to identify the third digit of the code.

7. Write it down and keep it safely.

need to mess with the settings in sky to programme them to work with your tele.

Should be a 'how to' on the net somewhere.
