Question about Standard (CRT) Televisions

I have a standard digibox and remote control but can't seem to find a code that works from the list of possible codes provided by SKY, for this TV. Would love to be able to adjust volume etc from SKY remote. Please can you help? Thanks

    Sorry Ronny - It's a Ferguson FTVD521T (A) TV. I did supply this info in my original request but obviously not in the right section.

  • thomas_d6 Dec 29, 2008


    Afraid the codes didn't work, presuming it was a zero before all the other codes. Could it be something to do with the version of the remote control? Information on the sticker inside the battery cover is as follows:

    RC 1600/00

    3104 207 07865

    OP000222 - 21

    Thanks for any advice you can give me.

    Sadly, those codes didn't work either. Could it do with the fact that the TV is a combi unit (has video recorder and DVD player as part of the unit)? Incidentally, I could never get my old TV combi, (which was an Aiwa), to work with the SKY remote.

    Also, as I mentioned yesterday, could the version of the SKY remote have something to do with it?


  • thomas_d6 Dec 30, 2008

    Thanks for the advice, but I just couldn't get the remote to turn off the TV (o go to standby.)

    I think we've come to the end of the road with this one. I am entitled to a refund of the $9.99 charge please?

    Success at last! I went out today and bought another SKY remote (version 8 software) and managed to program the remote using the code you supplied - 1963. Everything is working fine now. Thanks ever so much for your help on this. DT

  • ronny2051 Dec 29, 2008

    Try these for Orion...4digit 05493digit 322, 383, 263,205, 039, 065, 053, 205, 348, 349, 392, 544, 572, 054, 130, 037, 502, 239, 584, 297, 345, 471, 505, 207

  • ronny2051 Dec 30, 2008

    To find this code I used the following technique that cycles through all the codes programmed into the remote control. Hope its of some use.
    1. First press the <> key on the remote control, then turn on the TV that you want to operate.

    2. Press and hold the <> key to lock in the ID code that operated your TV. The LED will blink twice after pressing Select to indicate that the code was programmed.

    Once successful, to read back the code internally set, use this technique:

    1. Press the <> key on the remote

    2. Hold down <> and the <> keys together for approximately two seconds, until the RED LED on the Sky remote blinks twice.

    3. Enter three digit code from list for the receiver (early versions now flash twice).

    4. Press select to enter code (the LED will flash twice if a valid code has been entered).

  • ronny2051 Dec 31, 2008

    try some more --

    Use code for FTVD421T instead.......which is 1963.

    Just tried this and it works perfectly.

    if the code is not working please let me know.

  • ronny2051 Dec 31, 2008

Sky+ remote codes


i have here some writeups i found during surfing for your sky remote.

Not every TV is included in the code list. In fact, although it was claimed that "95 percent" of TVs could be controlled by the Digibox remote, the true figure is probably "95 percent of last year's models" and the standard remote will NOT control your Video Recorder or any other equipment.
UPDATE October 31, 2006. The latest versions of the remotes are SKY Rev.8 and SKY+ remote are Rev.6 and Sky-HD are Rev.8 (Sky-HD also operates the SKY+ Digibox and contains codes for more recent Plasma and TFT screens). Look at label inside the battery compartment. These remotes contain codes for more recent TV sets and omit codes for TV sets that are now several years old. We do not stock earlier revisions.

seems here that they may have no codes for your tv.
i will just update you if ever i find codes and ill post it here.
