Hi @Davidseed 

The replacement remotes aren't always new and may be paired to a different make of TV so may need resetting first. 

Try resetting the new remote and then set it up by following the instructions <<< here >>> 

If know you've tried this already but go to Home > Help and Settings > Help > Set up Remote. 

Follow instructions but instead of using the codes there you can also put 0999 in place of the code and press channel up until the TV turns off. then press ok.

Also, instead of the 0999 try the vodes for Sony TV listed <<< here >>>    - The first one that appears to work sn't always the best so try a few others too.

Hi Davidseed, thanks for the message and welcome back to the forums. 

I am sorry to hear that you are having issues with the remote. 

Can you confirm if what newapollo has suggested has worked for you? 

Please let us know if you are still having issues with the service? ^Chris.
