I've just got a phone with an IR blaster, so thought it would be convenient to use it to control TV, Sky, etc.

No problem to set it up for the TV, but I haven't been able to find the right setup for the Sky box. I assume the Sky box is a rebadged something-or-other... if I could find out what that was, I'd tell my phone that that was what I wanted to control, and all would be wonderful.

So... Anyone been down this path? What's the correct manufacturer/model for the Sky box?

It should be on the back of the box or within the system details menus. 
What kind of Sky Box is it?  Could be a Pace or Motorola.

OK... The Settings/System Details page says it's Pace - 012DEB.

I found at least one app SURE Universal that has a preset that controls it.
