I want a couple of IR receivers round the house to control an audio amp and some video kit and MySky box.

I understand there are issues/compatibility with the MySky box.

There seem to be a limited number of solutions (in no particular order)

Catlink (ControlPlus)
X-Ray Remote
Signet (seem to do their own version also)

Some of these specifically claim support for MySky or describe how to make it work with various techniques.

A straight repeater gives me a short term solution while I have multiple remotes.
I get the impression I would need multiple X-Ray remote transmitters - one for each handset.

My question......

Which of the above solutions are known to work reliably or not with MySky boxes.

I have had no problems with the one in my digitor video sender with mysky when I tried it. Shame the video side was less sucessful.

I got one from Jaycar - around the 60 dollar mark. 2.4Ghz I think, works fine from one end of the house to the other with MySky.

Sorry, just looked at my IR and video sender and its a digitech... no idea where it came from, trademe I think.

It has dip switches on it to choose a channel for the IR repeater which I needed when I had sky as the other one without it was getting rogue channel changes come thru.

Blue eye are very reliable systems - recommended for multiple remotes
