18
Found 3rd Apr 2012
just been given sky free for 6 months, wasnt gonna go back but its free! lol, anyhow, the sky remote is not turning the tv on or controlling the soind. i know we need to find a code to make it work the tv, but how do we get it to control the cinema system? (for sound), as the tv sound isnt 5.1 like the dvd set up (cinema setup). is this even possible? many thanks in advance xxx

I cannot get my sky remote to work the tv at the moment, it used to do but I dropped it and the batteries came out, now no matter what code I put in, none of them work.

Sorry, do not know answer to your question lol.

lol - it was not a blond moment honest!! Yes the batteries are back in, have tried loads of codes but none work, just find it strange because it worked before.

Try this … Try this link.http://www.sky.com/helpcentre/tv/remote-controls/operate-tv-with-sky-remote/



That link is for maccy1.
maccy1 are you positive you are using the correct process to put the code in. I was in a similar position until I realised I was doing it wrong even though I had done it several times before.
Thanks dipulmiah - there are some codes I have not tried on the Sky website, so will try.

Hi greg_68, I did the wrong one at first, it was for the dvd, but I will try with the other codes now.

Thanks.
