Has anybody tried to control the unit via IP? I would love the ability to control this way for Crestron automation.
B1GGLZ: If it is given an IP number and is visible on your Network does that mean you can now transfer recorded files to your PC's HDD?
This happened with my Panasonic Recorder (BWT720) with Win8.1 and Win10. Previously in Windows 7 I had to use server software (Twonky) to transfer files but in Win 8.1 it just appeared as another device on my Network and in File Explorer and I was able to drag and drop files. Win10 was a bit different in that I had to locate it first then pin it to the Quick Access list in File Explorer. Makes recorded file transfer for editing a breeze.
I have my MySky in a cabinet in the garage. It feeds into an HDMI matrix switch to a number of TVs around the house. I control the switch and the Mysky using an iTach IP/IR adapter. Using a SimpleControl app (formerly Roomie Remote) I can control Mysky, TV, SONOS, Apple TV, etc etc from anywhere in the house from my iphone, switching between sources automatically. The Pace Mysky decoder control set is supported out of the box by SimpleControl but only for IR. The fact that they dont support IP control suggests to me that it is not feasible to control the Mysky directly using IP.
BTW the Itach adapter is about NZ$180 and the SimpleControl app is free.

This is what I'm researching now as my new house has all the gear in a hall cupboard and only the TV on the wall in the lounge...
Uk have "Sky+" (Sky+ UK) which seems to be able to do all this as an app... if I manage to create a UK account and get this app, would it work on a local Sky+ box? (I joined a week ago and have the newest Mysky HDi box)
Also, they've had a variation of this for android since 2012! (Broadcaster )
I would be totally blown away if the UK app works on your NZ Mysky but full marks for your ingenuity! If not, my set up works really well and I would be happy to share further details if you want.
