Info below snaffled from the Satcure website:

">Question:
>How can I control my SKY+ Digibox with an ordinary remote control?

To reprogram the sky remote to control the sky+ box.

The sequence is:

* TV
* Hold Blue+select until LED flash twice
* 2
* Select
* Sky

Now the sky remote up and down channel buttons change the channels on a sky+ box.

To revert back, enter this sequence again but press the zero button instead of "2"."

Also to use 2nd remote in another room, RF Outlet in Sky+ Box must be switched to "ON". (Services 4 0 1 on Remote).
