    Hi cannot help with it but we have a similar problem with a Lava 19in TV /DVB / DVD/ CD /Radio - bought it at NEC show in February been in touch with Sky who are as much use as a chocolate teapot likewise the UK distributors who were totally lost when I asked for the sky codes.

    It is difficult to get Sky codes for some sets which are not common in the UK however if you know who made the tuner that is inside it you can try their codes (many smaller brands use tuners and/or screens from the big guys).

    The most popular ones are from Sony and Samsung - try their codes 1st.

    If all else fails you could try a universal remote control (the type that can "learn") to oerate both the sky box and the telly. They are a bit fiddly to set up as you have to "teach" the remote each of the commands for each of the pieces of equipment you want to control.

    Some codes seem to cross barriers between manufacturers and types of equipment e.g. If I use the remote for the Avtex tv to turn the sound up it also changes the channel I am watching on my FTA (non Sky) sat box and turns the cab radio on - well confusing!
