All it needs to be able to do it control Sky digital (no MySky or anything like that).  Apparently you can get a "replacement" remote from Sky for $25.  Would that be my best bet or is there something cheaper out there?

Thanks in advance.

At $25 thats the cheapest I know of, the next cheapest is the OneforAll URC7740 at $49 and the OneforAll Sky400 for $69 both available from Dick Smith. The nice things about both these two is that they will operate your TV, VCR, DVD and Sky/Sat, they also have a nice punch through mode, so when you are in satellite mode all the bottons operate the Sky box except the power, volume and mute which operate the TV.

Now every geekzoner with Sky in more than one room will be bidding on that remote. I wonder if it will go for more than $25!


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