Hi guys

Father has just had the new standard sky box installed but is having some issues with his remote sender, it used to work fine with the old sky box which was a silver pace device, when he brought them they said they would be compatible with my sky, but the problem seems that the device isn't picking up the ir from the remote very well. It works intermittently but not well enough, also having some issues placing the remote extender in the correct place on/beside the box.

Does anyone have any expirence with remote extenders and the new sky box?

I certainly had a problem with wireless ir when I got my myskyhdi (it had worked perfectly on old digital decoder) and I believe the new box uses the same remote as the myskyhdi. Something to do with the way it flashes the signal (in simplistic terms). In the end I went to a wired ir solution which seems to cope with the data rate much better.
If you want to stick with wireless you may need to look for something that states it is compatible with mysky/new sky box.

needed to change from wireless to wired when my box was upgraded.

 

Was missing volume adjustment or longer channel strings from 10 up
