Controlling Sky or Sky+ Digibox from SageTV - without IR !

Hi All,

For those trying to control Sky digibox from PC, just a quick plug for a hardware solution that I stumbled across over on the Snapstream forums...

...a very neat little USB device that connects to RF2 on the Sky digibox (I think most have RF2) to control channel changes. Works great with SageTV via 'exetuner' controlling a Grundig GDS3000 digibox.

The only small issue was that the supplied CLI software, when launched via exetuner, it briefly flashed up a cmd window, but wrapping the command in a VBscript that hides itself worked round that.

Hope that's useful to someone

:-)
