good price for Sky+ remote

I paid about £22 for one of these a couple of weeks ago.

Felt it was overpriced but had no option at the time as my existing one had broken.

Wow I didnt realise you had to buy another one if an existing one broke,thanks for that.heat added

paid £9 for one of these on ebay, it was a really bad fake. nice price for a real one.

call sky and say... i want to cancel... they ask why, you say your remote has stopped working, they send you remote (give you the money to buy one)

Is there anywhere I can get just the Sky Eye cheap? Since I went HD the box has been very slow to react to my remote and the word is it'll go better if I double the I/R receivers.

Cheapest I've seen from a nationwide highstreet retailer is Tesco @ £9.76 LINKY

wow didn't realise how much they were i got 2 spares that came when i replaced my box might sell them lol

Lots of £2.99 "Ross" ones still available at Homebargains. Be warned though, the layout of keys is a bit odd.
Strangely they've sold out of the old black ones for the non-plus digiboxes.

my sky+ box seems slow(ish) when using the remote, it's not a massive delay but you do notice it. i might try what you suggested.

bought one of these for abouy £9 on ebay, not a fake, so cold from me

Sky installer guys order them as spares for free, normally they sell them for under £10 on ebay, or if you see a Sky van they will give you one for £10.

It's all well and good saying that. At least this is a hassle free reliable source. Sainsbury's are doing really good deals on non food items lately. for example the Sony Batteries they're selling for 58p (AAA 8 pk) and Sony AA 8 pk for 99p. The AA's will go with this remote. Heat given.

You will get a new official one (or a HD one that also works for sky+) for £8 or £9 BIN on ebay, a fiver if you are willing to actually bid on an auction.

they are advertised as "offical replacement sky+ remotes" on ebay and they're rubbish, badly made pieces of junk. mine went in the bin, avoid the ones on ebay.

[CENTER]Well i've had 4 Sky+ remotes from ebay and they all worked well for a little while!

I have also had 3 Virgin remotes and 2 TV remotes lately as my little "puppy" (on the avatar)

Is 1 year old this month and she loves to play with remotes when daddy is out,

I dont mind her eating the remotes but when she farts the tv changes channel (lol).

If you are in a rush for a remote then this is a really good deal, but there are new ones on ebay cheaper.

You got a direct link on how to update the software on Sky+ boxes?

can't remember where i found it, unplug your sky+ box and hold down the back up button on the front then plug the power back in while still holding the back up button, after about a minute the lights on the front will come on and it'll say updating on the screen, takes about 10 minutes.

cold- when a remote breaks or you just want a new one just ring sky up and they send u 1 for free

I didn't say they were a high street retailer, I just posted the price.

Sorry if my better deal offended you

You did'nt say it but quoted my link which did, so it's not like for like. I'm sure there are quite a few places online that will do them cheaper delivered - HERE for example at £6.28

Who's offended - apples and pears that all :thumbsup:

Sorry you are wrong. Go with a decent seller with a feedback rating and lots of satisfied customers and you will get an official legit one for the prices I quoted. Sounds like you just got unlucky.

i purchased it from a seller with 3470 feedback, i'm not new to ebay i know what to buy and what not to buy. this was advertised as an "official sky+ replacement remote" and it wasn't, fact.

So everyone who gave good feedback was fooled? I have had 5 HD remotes off ebay, all cheap and genuine.

the feedback isn't just for sky+ remotes, he/she has sold other items. there probably are some real ones on ebay but there are more fake ones. many people have probably never seen a real one before, where as i had 4 others to compare the ebay one to.

On the shelf at £25, but scanned at £16 something for me.. Must be expired..
