I'm not so sure about the Sky+ & Sky +HD boxes using different codes -
I'm using the old Sky+ remote and it seems to work perfectly.
I am, however willing to try changing the scan codes - I'm just not sure
what I should be changing ;-( I presume it's in the general.conf file,
here's a snippet of mine:
# this config file was automatically generated
# using lirc-0.8.0(userspace) on Fri Jul 28 02:45:39 2006
# contributed by Lloyd Williams <binary_frog|chatcircuit.com>

# model no. of remote control: URC 1650-00 B00 - 9RC16P-1014 Sky+ Rev 6
# devices being controlled by this remote: SKY+ DVB-S receiver & PVR
header 2691 890
one 427 460
zero 427 460
Any help gratefully received.
