Re: Sky+ IP Control

Hi Turribeach.

I upgraded to Q at Christmas and looked at exactly the same docs you linked to above.

My Sky+ plugin used the same process as the one documented so would be a good place to start from.

I’m unlikely to commit time to it so if you want to go ahead, feel free.

Re: Sky+ IP Control

This would be handy if it worked with the old Sky HD box. I've currently made a bodged plugin to translate the RS232 info into indigo but something keeps causing odd characters to show up and other weird behaviour. I'd rather not upgrade to Sky Q as i have no need for the extra features and i'm paying sky just £5 a month for the old system with all the normal channels. Which is nice.

Computer says no.

Hi Peter, got Q installed today. Happy to give it a go, where would I find your Sky+ plugin? I looked around but couldn't find it. I played around with the NodeJS implementation and my Q that worked well. To be honest I will happy to move to network control since IR has always been a bit hit and miss.
