    The remotes are NOT the same, (visually) If you have an old Sky Plus remote with your HD box you got stung....

    However, the Sky + remote still works on the Sky + HD box... so you will be ok.


    Sky + Remote - (newer version with blue buttons rather than green.)

    i think you need to go back and read the question we tried to answer here my friend. the remotes are the same, just cosmetically different. a hd one will work on a + box and vice versa...

    Aah, okay - I get you also

    So I should be able to leave my old Sky+ remote upstairs to use with the MagicEye thingy? Cool, will give it a go :thumbsup:

    Yes it will work, however when the installer installs your new box he/she must change a setting on the box to put out a power source for output number 2 to power your magic eye. Remember to mention it

    Before suggesting me to go back and read the question, It may of been an idea for you to do the same as i answered the question in my first post.

    The fact is, you said the remote's were the same when there clearly not. (There different design's)

    Yes, the HD design remote will control the SD box and vice versa...
