Hi Guys

I have just brought via ebay a Sony VTX-S760U sky digital receiver, it came with out a remote control. I had an ols blue sky remote control that still works the number in the back is RC1600/00 3104 207 0785 OP000141 -21 this is on a sticker in the battery compartment. I need the remote to get into the set up on the digi box for aligning the dish using the signal strength. i can not get the remote to work with this receiver, although some of the buttons do get the remote receiver light to work on the digi box. Is this because i do not yet have a signal or are there different kinds of remotes ? The remote is blue with a blue sky button with "sky" writen on the button no logo.

Many thanks for your help i was sitting in the rain trying to align the dish in the rain yesterday up a ladder looking down at the screen n the garden which was under a taupalin. !!!!!!! Help !!!!!!!

Suggest you try another remote. sky remotes are very prone to malfunction. I have had 2 that went dead within the last few months!!

The remote will work on any skybox so that isn't an issue. It has probably become 'gunked' up. Open it up and give the pcb and keypad and good clean, that usually works for me.

Tuning.... http://www.satelliteforcaravans.co.uk/ is a good place for info.

If you are using the digibox as the meter then you are best to tune it on the manual tuning setting as this won't reset so quickly. Services-4-0-1-select and select manual tuning then find channels and select again. Move the dish in very small incroments and leave for a couple of seconds each time. You are looking for ID 0002!

Cheers

I brought a new remote control after trying the cleaning of the pcb on the old remote. this cured the remote problem and lets me into the set up menu. I can now align the receiver, i will keep you posted
