Satellite: Sky HD remote TV code

To use Sky Active to find your code and program your remote

  1. To access the Sky Active service, press
    interactive on your Sky remote control and select
    Sky Active from the menu that appears.
  2. Select
    Help Centre from the next menu, then
    Set Up My Sky Remote from the Help options.
  3. You will see a message saying "The service will walk you through how to set up your Sky
    Remote..."
  4. Select the manufacturer and model of your TV set from the menu that appears. You may need to
    scroll through a number of options.
  5. Once you've done this, your four-digit code will be displayed on your TV screen.

Alternatively, you can look for your TV code in sky's PDF guide on
Using Sky Active to find your code and
program your remote
.

When you have your code:

  1. Cover the end of your Sky remote control and press the
    tv button.
  2. Remove your hand, then hold
    select and the
    red button together until the light at the top of your remote blinks twice.
  3. Enter your four-digit setup code and press
    select.
  4. Cover the end of your Sky remote control and press
    sky.

If this works, test the remote by changing your TV volume. Please remember that some TV
functions may not be supported by your Sky remote, but the basic standby and volume functions
should work once you've put your code in.

If it doesn't work (like the remote doesn't flash when code entered), then you have too old a version. Most 2008 LCD screens and later need V8 or later of physical Remote.  

My old Sky remote works my TV but now I’ve got a new Sky box, how can I get my new remote to work the TV?

On your old Sky remote, press
tv, then press
select and
red together until the LED on the remote control flashes twice. Press
9 9 0. Then press
1 followed by
2,
3 and then
4 and count how many times the LED on the remote flashes. i.e. press
1 – count how many times the LED flashes, then press
2 and count how many times the LED flashes, press
3 and count, press

Take your new remote and press

the remote works your TV by changing the volume by pressing the
