Does anyone know the 4 digit programming code to get an "All for One" URC 7740 to work on a MySky HDi box - or is the "Universal" not all that "uni" !!   I would also like it to work on my SatMax Plus box as well but that's probably asking a bit too much for a low end remote.

Have you tried the foxtel codes out of the manual? The Aussie Foxtel IQ boxes are the same as the mysky hdi. From the manual: Foxtel 0879 0720 0455 0497 0795 1176 0345.

Cheers, Matt.

Thanks Hairy1, but those codes don't work either.  I have done the manual search exercise and it doesn't find any code for the MySky.  I still have the receipt from DSE so it goes back today.

I have a MySky HDi, a SatMax Plus box  and a cheap Sanyo DVD player and it doesn't work on any of them - only my Sony LCD so it's next to useless - I may as well just get a single tv remote for half the price.

I have the Logitech 525 remote. A little bit more expensive but guaranteed to work with everything. Very customisable. I had a real cheap URC and spent hours trying to make it work (and failed). The logitech system makes it easy to make the remote work with any component.
