The WatchON 6.4.7 settings do not include NZ as a country option. Selecting “Other countries/regions” then “Show other brands” allows one to select from many brands of set-top boxes including inter alia PACE. However choosing PACE and code 11 allows only on/off & channel selection, not volume nor mute.


Has anyone found another setting (brand/model/code) which gives full Samsung WatchON functionality for SKY NZ PACE DS230NNZ?

I've had them working before. But I'm sure its always been different.  The other day I connected with code 8, and before that I think it was code 14

I've find WatchOn to be spectacularly useless. It lists my TV manufacturer, but none of three 3 sets of codes works. It does work with my Onkyo receiver, but will only turn it on and change the volume. As a remote, it looks fairly nice but that's about it.

Combine this with the fact that it doesn't support NZ for TV listings, and there's not a whole lot of point to it, IMO.
