- I have a one for all remote sender for my sky decoder in another room but when the neighbour changes their sky channel mine changes as well. Any sugestions would be appreciated
stuzzo: Even though the remotes may differ they likely all use the same codes/format, except Mysky which I know is different.
Someone else may know for sure. The problem with approaching Sky about is is that they kind of frown on using Sky in other rooms if you aren't using a second decoder from them.
This will allow you to watch the same SKY channel on one other television in the same home. The standard cost is $49.90 per split. Additional charges may apply."
- one of the additional extras you can choose when getting Sky installed :-)
But yeah, I agree - it sounds like your neighbour has either a RF remote or a OFA extender too - maybe you could see if he can reprogram the channel his works on? Otherwise you're probably stuck with getting a new one, or convincing sky to change your make of decoder...
Billwilson: I think I will see if Sky has a special on the old My Sky decoders when they introduce the new HD decoder.
I don't have an HD TV and I understand that they don't have the rf output which I use for the signal in other parts of the house.
Do you guys know if the remote signals are different?
Knowing my luck I would just get it working and my neighbour would change to the same decoder.
marmel: I used to work for a national retail chain and our shop was across the road from a competitor. Friday nights they used to shut at 8pm, we used to close at 9pm. After they left we used to take the remotes and wander across to their window display and crank up all of their tv's, stereo's etc. Helped to fill in that last hour of the day.
