Sky + box not working with new remote.

Shakey MicShakey Mic

I bought a new Sky + remote off here a few days ago but for some reason it won't work on my Sky + box.

The red light works when you press any button on the remote but nothing seems to work on the box. All the features seem to work on the box when I press the buttons directly on the box but the remote light situated on the Sky box doesn't seem to flash when you point and press the remote.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

    1. Select any channel on the TV.
    2. Point your Sky+ remote control away from the TV and press the tv button.
    3. Press and hold down the Select and red buttons simultaneously on the Sky+ remote control until the red light at the top of the Sky+ remote control flashes twice.
    4. Input the 4 digit number from the Sky+ remote control codes then press the Select button. The red light at the top of the Sky+ remote control should flash twice.
    5. Point the Sky+ remote control at the TV and try the volume button.

    * If this works try the other TV functions.
    * If these work then the correct code has been selected.
    * It's important to note that not all TV functions will be supported by the Sky+ remote control e.g. Picture in Picture.

    If all functions do not work correctly, then repeat steps 1 - 3 and work through all the relevant 3 digit numbers from the Sky+ remote control codes, until you find the code which supports all or as many of the TV functions as possible.
    Please note: In order to operate both your TV and Sky+ with your Sky+ remote control, you will be required to switch modes e.g. to switch on your TV from stand-by, you would need to press “TV” followed by the “Stand-by” button. Then to change channel on your Sky+ you would need to press the “Sky” button followed by the “TV guide” button.

    It's not the TV volume I'm worried about. The Sky remote won't work the Sky box. The light on the remote flashes when you press any of the buttons but nothing happens on the Sky box.

    But they are talking about controlling the sky box not the tv!
