I am hoping this is a problem people have or are expecting to have and already have a few solutions.
Does anyone know if the new/replacement sky box remote is the same/sends the same signals as the current mysky/mysky +.
My folks have a media cupboard, with a mysky+ and an older sky box that is due to be replaced as part of the coming upgrade programme.
These boxes are disputed around the house to several screens using VeCoax RF Modulators.
Each screen has access to both decoders.
The current IR system is a Xantech and the existing sky remotes are used. (mysky grey one and skinny black old sky one)
We are hoping the new replacement skybox remote does not clash with the existing mysky or both boxes will change channel.
Does anyone know if this is the case or can both boxes exist together ?
If they don't work what alternative solutions are there?
-My brother suggest swapping the new skybox for a review box that can take the sky card
-I've suggested looking into Rf remotes for the new sky box only, though I have no experience with them so do not know if this will work, as we would need 3 or 4 identical remotes for the different rooms.
-As it is for my parents it needs to be easy to work.
I expect this to be a common issue.
I am looking forward to your replies, answers and suggestions.
