In case anyone is in any doubt, this is a 100% genuine Sky HD Remote made by Philips.
My remote arrived simply packaged with the batteries in a foam sleeve, there were no instructions with it but at only 40% of the RRP who's complaining!
If like me, you want to use the remote to replace one used on the older Sky digital boxes, you simply need to reprogramme the controller as follows:
1. Press the TV button.
2. Press and hold SELECT and i (Information button) together until the LED flashes twice.
3. Press the number button 0 and then press SELECT.
4. Press the Sky Button to lock everything in.
All in all and excellent product and great value.
