On Thursday we received our new Virgin Media equipment, including a TV360 box. Despite being physically the same box as their old V6 version (existing customers are getting TV360 pushed out as a software update) the TV360 software no longer works with existing Virgin TV remotes.

It will, however, work with so-called “universal” remotes if you tell the it is a “Ziggo MediaBox Next”. Some people have used Harmony remotes with their boxes, however they seem quite expensive so I bought a much cheaper “One For All Contour Universal Remote”. The required magic code is 1582.

The code for our Sony KDL-43W755C TV was 4396.
