We ordered this remote as ours had stopped working. It arrived promptly and it is working brilliantly, although I had to search on the internet in order to get it working with the sky box. By following the instructions that came with the remote I was able to get the reomte working with the TV but not with the sky box itself. If anyone has similar issues I found the below advice online and it worked:

Press "TV"
Press "Yellow" and "Select" together - red led in remote should flash twice
Press "0" for standard box, "1" for Sky + box
Press "Select" - red led should flash twice
Press "Sky"

By the way I also found another extremely useful tip that has now got my old remote working! Before doing this the remote was dead and, yes, I had tried changing the batteries. Take out the batteries and hold down the select button for 60secs. Put the batteries back in and somehow it works again. You may have to then follow the normal procedure of entering your TV code etc to sync it with your TV again. The buttons on this old remote are a bit worn so it was still worth buying the new one which is a lot cheaper from this company than in shops and works quicker than the old one. For the time being I've gone from no working remote to two so am happy again.

This is the remote that works all the Sky Digital Receivers, easy to use, nice clear display, with good size buttons.
You will need a Sky 110 remote for Sky+.

To program the remote control unit to operate the Tv, using a 3 digit code:

1 Turn your TV on.

2 Press TV on your Sky remote control handset.

3 Hold down SELECT and the RED button together for about 2 seconds, until the red light on the Sky remote control flashes twice.

4 Key in your 3 digit code selected for your make of TV from the table below. The light on the Sky remote control should flash twice. If the light flashes only once, recheck the code for your make of TV and start again at Step 1.

5 Press the STANDBY button on your Sky remote control. If your TV switches off, press SELECT. The light on the Sky remote control flashes twice. Now try the other functions.

6 Repeat if necessary using another code.

To program the remote control unit using a 4 digit code:

1 Turn your TV on.

2 Press TV on your Sky remote control handset.

3 Hold down SELECT and the RED button together for about 2 seconds, until the red light on the Sky remote control flashes twice.

4 Press TV on the remote again.

5 Type in the 4 digit code for your TV. The LED on the remote should flash twice. If the LED only flashes once, recheck the code for your brand of TV and start again at Step 1.

6 Press STANDBY, and your TV should turn off. If it doesn't, switch off, press TV, then press the STANDBY button. Repeat this (press TV, then STANDBY) until your TV turns off, then press SELECT.

NOTE: If the LED on the Sky remote control flashes 3 times then all internal codes for that make of receiver have been checked. Repeat from step 1, ensuring that you enter the correct manufacturer code.

7 You should see the TV Guide screen. When you do, the remote control set-up process is complete. If you do not see the TV Guide screen, you must now complete the following steps.

8 Press TV on the remote control.

9 Hold down SELECT and the GREEN button together for about two seconds, until the red light on the Sky remote control flashes twice.

10 Key in the number of the channel on your TV that you use for watching satellite TV.

11 Press SELECT on your remote control. The red light flashes twice. The remote control setup process is complete

As this stated it was a genuine SKY remote control I expected it to be as good as the one it was replacing. Unfortunately it was not - it felt much cheaper and the buttons did not have the same feel as the original. It did not seem to work as well either. Might just have been a bad one but would not buy again.

To work on a standard Sky + box:

Press TV, hold Select & i together until the LED light flashes twice, press 1 then Select.

It now operates the standard box, looks nicer than standard remote and is cheaper!

There isn't really a lot you can say about this remote. If you've lost or damaged your Sky Digital remote controller you're going to need a replacement, and this official remote is half the price the high-street retailers are charging. I ordered mine from LetsAutomate Ltd (via Amazon) using standard delivery and it arrived in 2 days, much faster than their estimated delivery time so I was already pleased with their service!

The remote functions perfectly and, apart from the new colour scheme (white/grey instead of black) is cosmetically exactly the same. However, being a newer `REV8' generation model (as opposed to my old black remote which was apparently a REV6) it is also programmed to control a greater number of TV models. Happily, this now included my Philips widescreen TV, so I can use this remote to affect my TV as well as my Sky box. Volume, terrestrial channels and teletext/ceefax can now be controlled with this remote, so I can retire the TV remote to the garage and that's one less thing cluttering up my living room!

The only minor issues I have that stop this getting 5 stars are a) that the remote did not come in `official' packaging, just a plastic sleeve inside an envelope with a bubble-wrap interior and b) the remote also didn't come with any batteries, although this wasn't a problem as I now had a few spare (the batteries from my old broken Sky remote and also from the retired TV remote).

Please also note this is only for use with standard Sky boxes, not Sky Plus or Sky HD.

Remote arrived early, no problems there.

Couldnt get remote to work with the hd box. Sent email and got a reply within 10mins and problem solved!

They should have given this information with the remote, would have saved me emailling them.

Step 1. Press the TV button.

Step 2. Press and hold SELECT and i (Information button) together until the LED flashes twice.

Step 3. Press the number button 1 and then press SELECT.

Step 4. Press the Sky Button to lock everything in.

Hope this helps anyone with the same problem.

If you want an extra/replacement Sky HD remote this is the way to go.
It is the genuine product at a fraction of the normal price

Fantastic value for money compared to the price of a Sky remote in the high street. I took a bit of a gamble in buying this remote as I did not know the supplier but once the product arrived I had no reason to be concerned, this remote is fantastic value for money. I received great communication during the buying process. I was kept up to date from the moment I placed my order to the day it arrived. Once the product arrived (about 4 days after I placed the order) all I had to do was stick in the batteries and follow the simple and clear instructions to ensure your remote communicates to both the TV and the Sky box - really simple and easy. Did I mention this product is great value for money? Very pleased.

1 star for arriving quick. Was advertised as new but was s/h, some keys dirty some icons worn off and batteries flat. Back panel was sticky. Added new batteries and worked ok but some keys needed pressing hard, as this is just a spare it will do. E-mailed the company but have had no responce.
