    After months of trying to get MCE working with my Panasonic TU-DSB40 set-top
    box, I've finally done it. The solution seems to be down to two important
    factors. Firstly, move the IR transmitter 'bug' all around the front panel of
    the set-top box to find a place that gets a response. Secondly, cover the
    thing with black tape when it's in position. Now, you say, how do I do both
    at the same time? Well, the way I simulated the tape was to work in a
    dimly-lit room with my thumb over the bug. After trying a few positions,
    bingo it works. No more dropping digits from the channel number! There you go

    That's interesting my Sky digibox is a Panasonic TU-DSB30 & it took me a lot of
    trial & error to get reliable channel changing. My problem was not dropped
    digits but extra digits e.g. instead of 101 I got 1101 or 1001. The perfect
    place for the IR bug was in fact not directly over the IR receiver but in fact
    some distance away.

    For those of you still struggling it worked when but about an inch to the
    left of the box remote reciever with the bug facing the box reciever and
    secured to the thin plastic window panel
