is this 'smart' can I link it to things like IFTTT ?

So this in effect puts on ir blaster on my phone or rather controlled by it??

urgh...nothing worse than using a smartphone for a remote control. You need tactile buttons so you can operate without staring down at the phone.

Cheaper than a Harmony I guess though.

Wonder if this could be used to change channel of a sky Q box thats in anlther room? (I've got a long hdmi splitter for multiroom)

Ahh sod it orderded, worth a shot. Thanks OP

Will this work with the Google home I have just bought and could it change channels etc on my virgin media box? Cheers

Doesn't Sky already have an app for that?

edit: wow. sky doesn't offer an official app to do this like they do for the Sky+ HD boxes. there are 3rd party remote apps for android though

Have you tried the touch remote in the other room, it's Bluetooth rather than IR so depending on how far away the other room is it could work.

What app does this use?

I wonder if this would work for my Bush soundbar, I bought one without a remote to save money and it was a grave mistake

Thanks but our sky Q remote isn't the touch version seems to be standard ir

I got both when they installed mine, never really used the touch remote as it was a pain in the axxe to use but have heard of people using them in different rooms, think they are £20 from sky at the moment but might be worth trying to see if you can borrow one from someone you know to see if it works.

If you're a little tech savvy, and have a linux box (eg a raspberry pi), you can use github.com/dal…cli


I don't have Sky Q, but I use Alexa, IFTTT and a Raspberry Pi to have voice control of my Sky box (Alexa, trigger Formula One).

Ahh interesting sounds good. I do have a raspberry Pi sat in a drawer doing nothing as it happens. I've only ever used it as a simple media player in the past.
To get the sky-remote-cli working is it a case of installing Raspbian Os, node js then sky cli? How do I then execute the commands from say a browser?
I'm a C# .net developer as a day job but not familiar with linux at all.
Thanks for your help

Oh just found this interesting blog about controlling the skyq box via a restful api, will have a play at some point.

How's your python? Here's some to run a webserver (https://codeshare.io/5R8V3O) with a username and password. Then sign up to a dynamic dns service, eg dtdns. Then use this (https://codeshare.io/2E6NOX) as sky.cgi in the same folder as the other file, to execute the sky-cli commands. Then you should be able to make web requests to http://username:password@yourdtdnsname.dtdns.net:63636/sky.cgi?q=401, to change to channel 401.

Thanks very much for this! I will have a play!
Need to find which drawer the Pi is stuffed in 🤣

Is this the same as Harmony hub? Seems much cheaper option if it is
