How to Get Your Sound Amplifier to Work With Your Sky Remote

Posted on July 26, 2009

Sky Remotes

Operate your Surround sound amplifier from your Sky + remote.

Turning on an AV amplifier with a Sky+ remote control:-

1. Turn on the AV amplifier you wish to operate, press the TV button on the Sky+ Remote Control.
2. Press and hold down <select> and <0> buttons on the Sky+ Remote until the LED blinks twice.
3. Input the 4 digit number from the Sky+ list shown below. The LED will flash twice.
4. Use the green left arrow button on the Sky+ remote to try and switch the AV Amplifier into standby. If the standby button works then the other AV Amplifier functions should also work and the correct code has been selected.
5. If all functions do not work correctly then repeat steps 1-3 and work through all the 4 digit numbers from the list until you find a code that supports most of the AV Amplifier functions.
6.The most popular codes are sorted first within the list, therefore use the codes in the given sequence one after the other.
If your Sky+ remote is fairly new or you have the Sky Navigator remote controller, it may be possible to set the normal volume/mute controls to work your amp rather than the TV.

1. Program the remote as detailed above to control your amp using the arrow keys in TV mode.
2. Press TV Key
3. Hold down <select> and <1> until the remote’s LED flashes twice (if it only flashes once or remains on your version remote does not support this feature).
4. Press Sky key.
To reverse the process press <select> and <2>
