Skycable Digibox remote busted

Hi guys, do any of the cheap generic remotes found in the malls work with skycable digibox? Mine is busted and skycable says I need to pay 800php to replace it. I think its kinda ridiculous..

    That sucks, then why don't you try to buy cheap ones that you can find in CD-R king?...
    I never tried Sky's Digibox, but we have Cable TV installed in our house.. Not interested in that Digibox thing.

    napapalitan ng kapatid ko yung remote ng digibox sa sky, di naman kami siningil. Sabi lang basta dapat kumpleto yung remote, intact yung takip sa likod.

    HI guys, just wondering nawawalan din ba kayo ng sky cable pag me important events in TV? Napapansin ko kasi namamatay yung sky cable namin sa bahay pag me Pacquiao, UFC or UAAP game na kelangan ko panoorin LOL. Di naman kami nagkakaroon ng ganitong issue Pre-Digibox, di ko alam kung buong area namin yung affected or connections na namin yung may problem.

    tumawag lang kapatid ko, the following day ayun pinalitan na. Yung samin kasi di na gumagana yung ibang controls. Tinesting naman ng technician yung lumang remote, tapos nung nakita na sira na talaga, ayun, pinalitan naman. No charge daw kasi kumpleto naman yung remote.

    Nagpalit sila ng contact number di ba? 3810000

    There's no Devices or peripherals these days that CDR-king didn't imitate.

    Sky replaced our unit for free. But after a week, it does not work again. Reported it to them and advised us that they will now charge us for the replacement.

    Had our Skycable digibox remote control replaced today w/out any charge. They will only charge you (for 500 php) if there is physical damage on the unit.

    Guys may problem sa signal namin since nag digibox kami. Yung parang nagpi-pixelate ang video bigla-bigla. And minsan matagal talaga, like 3mins siguro hanggang sa mainis na lang ako sa kahihintay. Na-encounter nyo na ba ang ganitong problema? Parang mas gusto ko pa na analog na lang ulit. Mas malinaw nga lang viewing ngayon. :(

    minsan yung samin ganun din pixelated o kaya tumitigil or nahuhuli yung buka ng bibig, pero tingin ko sa channel na dependent yun like etc 2nd ave or lifestyle network. try to remove the sim card, on your digibox sa gilid andun yung lalagyan nung card. hope this helps :)

    try mo rin itawag sa sky cable may ituturo sila minsan na gagawin sa digibox para maayos...

    Sim card? Hmmm hindi ko yata kilala masyado ang digibox sa bahay ah? Hahaha mula nang ikinabit remote lang ang hinahawakan ko.
    Does it mean na kung bibili ako ng another digibox from a seller at ikakabit ko to another TV ay hindi gagana iyon dahil sa may sim card na probably designated lang sa line namin?

    yung card actually singlaki ng prepaid card/atm card. Kung familiar ka sa credit card ng bpi mga ganun siya kalaki tapos may embedded sim, nasa gilid yun sa bandang baba, pwede mo i-slide o slight hila para matanggal yung card. Try mo i-angat yung digibox. Yung sa'min kasi ganun. Di ko lang alam kung may bago ng digibox ang sky.

    regarding sa third party digibox, di ko masasagot :hiya:

    You can always call them up 3810000
    mahirap lang tumawag minsan

    I see. I asked an agent roaming our area yesterday. She said I could get another box for addtl 250 per month + installation fee around 600+...
    I was like, "Ate kakakabit nyo lang ng digibox ko 2 weeks ago then ngayon installation fee ulit for an extra box?"
    She answered, "Oo, Sir. Ihahatid pa kasi dito sa bahay nyo ang digibox."
    Me, WTF! Libre ba kung kunin ko na lang sa office nyo?

    Yeah. But I tried connecting my TV2 to the wire w/o the digibox and viola, got local channels + Starmovies and cinemaone. Hahaha TV1 has the box and enjoys the benefits, too.
