Help weird sky remote issues!!
Oct 8th, 2009, 10:55pm
 
Please help I'm going crazy here! I went away on holiday all was working 100% fine came back off holiday and my sky remote didn't work unless you went right up to the receiver and sometimes not at all. Tried new batteries, tried another set of new batteries - no difference, tried new remote - no difference, tried another old pace receiver - no difference!! Tried different combinations of both - no difference, sometimes it'll work fine for a few mins then revert back to not working properly  :'( I only have the old pace 2200 and 2500 receivers and I'm wondering if this has anything to do with software and my new sky card I had to swap over. The whole setup was left powered on during the time I was away and I've also used the backup button on powerup to force a software update.  
 
I'm at my wits end here and about to lose what little hair I have left.......
 
Matt.

Matt.
Odd indeed !
Does the sky remote still work your TV ok?
You haven't got another remote with a button stuck in pointing at your receiver and blocking the sky one?
Is the sun shining on the receiver blocking the sensor?
That's enough .......for now !!

I was thinking of a remote key sticking down on the sky remote or TV remote.

Thanks for the advice guys, I tried again but nothing worked and a few days later the problem solved itself!!! So far it's been working fine  Roll Eyes I rekon that secret government forces were beaming in infra-red beams into my living room to discover just how much time I spend channel hopping with the remote  Grin Grin
