Hey,

When I had foxtel in Australia the normal iq remote had this feature where it could learn functions that essentially made it a universal remote. When i tried to do it with mysky (which is basically the same remote) I couldn't do it. Doesn't mysky not have this feature. If so, is it a hardware issue e.g. would i be able to use a foxtel remote in NZ with the learning feature? or is it a firmware issue? I miss it because it was actually really handy in my view.

Thanks!

Dont worry BBK - with the news corp sale of Sky NZ, it will only be a few months until Foxtel aquire Sky NZ and there will be a whole range of new fantastic HD channels - and remote learning feature will be unanimous!




I don't want no sugar in it - thank you very much

I believe that functionality was taken out of the SKY version of the remotes, sorry. However, I think that the Foxtel remotes can also drive the SKY box so, if you get your hands on one of their remotes, I think you can get the full functionality.

News Corp sells SKY NZ just to buy it back again few months later at an inflated price. Really cannot see it happening, sorry if I did not get any sarcasm intended.
