Does anyone know which Android app, if any, is capable of turning my S4/S5 into a remote for my MySky box? It is not one of the pre-sets on any of the (admittedly free) IR apps I have tried.
I'm pretty useless at technology but if someone could give a step by step or just an easy to use app that they have had success with that'd be great.

What about the Sky App not exactly an IR remote but can record remotely. For just a TV remote use the Samsung one provided as its fine or search for Samsung IR blaster

Galaxy S8

The stock app does it.  MySky box is made by Pace, so find them in the app.  It should be around the 14th code under Pace.
