Sky remote control
« on: June 08, 2011, 09:57:52 pm »
Hi,
To aid ease of use, I'd like to use the remote control for my sky box and have it pass through the linuxmce system to control the sky HD box. (i.e. capture the ir command via the usbuirt, then send it back out again)  I wanted to add a remote control in the webadmin section "infrared remote controls you will use", but there wasn't one listed for the sky box (any of them) that i could see.

Has anybody already setup a template for a sky remote control, or am I going to have to sit and teach it all the commands from scratch?

I can use my windows remote to control the sky box, and also the gyration remote, which use the "Sky plus codeset".  Can I use this info and create a new remote template from it??

Cheers.

Matt.

You will need to create a device template using the following page:

Hope this helps,
