Sky+ remote control problem

Hello all this is my first post so i hope I'm in the correct place.
firstly I have repositiond a few dishes and rewired them etc with sucsess but that's as far as I've got with my exsperiance of problems.
my problem is with a Thomson 129e163 sky+ box .
the remote control stops working randomly. If i turn the box off by the front panel power button then back on it works for a short while then stops. I have digi eye or something simalar hooked up from it for my bedroom TV all remote functions work fine on this. all front panel buttons work fine. I have tried changing the codes of the remote control with no change. It also controls my TV all the time with no problems. when it stops working the Sky box the red light on remote works but not on the box.
this makes me think it is a problem with the box and not the remote but I am puzzled as to how turning off and on works for a short time.
oh one last thing since i got this box when i first turn on the TV while the box has always been on I had to wait about 10 minutes before the remote would work we joked saying we had to preheat it first. sorry for the length of this post but i hope I have given all the information nessacery

Try pressing services

I can turn on tv but not other functions

Hello, Tommy Faust with DISH Network here. I'm sorry your remote is having problems, but would be happy to help.

First make sure the remote is in satellite mode, and see if any functions return. If they don't then take the remote to your main tv and access the system information screen. Press the record button 3 times and retry remote and see if it works.

Hope this helped! Feel free to post back if you still require assistance.

How to fix sky if it is saying no No satellite signal is being received

There are too many possibilities for this to list them all, however the first places to check would be the cable between the LNB receiver and your Sky digibox - and the dish itself.

You really need to provide more details . . .

1. Is this a permanent fault or do you sometimes receive transmissions?
2. Does this happen mostly during bad weather?
3. Are there any new or extended buildings adjacent to your house?

First, unscrew the co-ax cable at the back of your Sky box and inspect it visually. Make sure the cable is properly inserted into the F-plug and it's tight. If it's ok, screw it back on to the Sky box.

Next, you need to check the dish end of the cable. Make sure the connection to the LNB is tight, the cable is correctly inserted into the plug, and the connection is waterproof - there should be a rubber "boot" covering the connector.

Finally, check your dish is 100% SECURE AND RIGID. If the bracket or bolts are loose, it's likely that your dish has become misaligned.

Try these simple tests first and if everything checks out, please post back providing the details I requested above.

I had a customer with the same problem recently. It was caused by his neighbour's new extension shadowing his dish!

Conect sky remote to sky+ box

Hello Jolene725,

If you are using a standard remote / HD remote for a sky + then you will have to press the following buttons:
SELECT + i (flashes twice)

You now should be able to use the standard remote with the Sky+ box.
Just bare in mind that using the standard remote you dont have the buttons to pause, record, etc.

Hope this has helped you out. If so then please leave a thumbs up
