Hi, I have just connected MYSKY to my other TV by using HDMI splitter and 20m HDMI cord, I was wondering if there was some kind of remote you can buy that will register on the SKY device in another room? Any help or links of where to buy such a thing would be greatly appreciated I can't find one ANYWHERE

You can get one of those ir sensor things that can get the mysky remotes signals and send them to the box. Someone more competent may be able to help further.

There is one called Xray (i think). I have just an IR sender for the remote. Dont know if it goes through walls.

Yep. I have a couple of X-Ray remote controllers here that work well with Mysky.

You can also get them off Amazon.

My views (except when I am looking out their windows) are not those of my employer.

I mucked about with several of those remote extenders and they rarely worked in my testing and were pretty ugly to boot. I ended up getting a Logitech Harmony Smart Control. Comes with a hub and a remote, and there's a free app for iOS and Android. The small hub connects to your WiFi and picks up signals from your remote or mobile. The hub relays the commands via an IR blaster you can position for your equipment. 

I wish they sold just the hub, 'cos I don't use the remote at all, just use the iOS app.  

Not the cheapest, but definitely works, and works well.

I have a Jaycar Wireless IR sender.


We use a Harmony remote in the lounge and the original Sky remote in the bedroom (about 10m). It works fine.
