Hi,

 

 

 

I'm looking to create a super super basic setup for someone in a satellite only TV location.

 

 

 

Just wondering if it's possible to turn a TV on and off via the sky remote, via hdmi link and CEC control?

 

 

 

Has anyone done something like this reliably, without resorting to a universal remote?

 

 

 

Thanks,

 

Jaxson.

I think you can get a basic universal remote that looks like the sky remote, but has the volume and power controls programmable for the TV.,
