Found 9th Apr 2009
HI,

Is it possible to lock my sky+ box so it will only work with the remote as the little one is forever pressing the buttons?
I know you can buy a plastic cover for it in the states but does anyone know of it over here?

Thanks

We had to buy a locking tv cabinet to stop the youngest two messing with all the buttons on sky dvd etc, couldnt find any sort of protector anywhere.

I really hope it dont come to that as the cabinet was £400, I did make a cardboard cover for it with a hole for the infrared lol but its looks so stupid.

I usually use a babydan den thing around my Christmas tree. You would think that someone would start inventing these sort of things, they would make a fortune!

Would this work?

Whoever left me rep, without their name...PM me, and i'll answer your question!

Can you not get some of that clear perspex from most DIY stores, and adapt a screen for the cabinet?

Nightmare you buy all this expensive equipment and then have to hide it away with FUGLY Covers, I have all this to look forward to...

Sod it... get one of these

[SIZE="4"][CENTER]For the Sky box...or the child??????? :-D[/CENTER][/SIZE]

your best bed would be a sheet of perspex.

Even more so if you have a heat gun or similar as you can just heat all the way across the middle of itand form it around the front of the sky box. in kind of a C/D (without the straight line) shape.

presto custom made cover!

As an electrical engineer, i'd temporarily disconnect the buttons from the inside of the box :thumbsup:
