    Hi guys.

    Can the RS232 board fitted to the AV192R control the V2 Pace SKY+ box, the sky+ box has an RS232 port but I seem to remember that that isn't for us mortals just factory use?

    Basically I'd like to send an IR command into the AV192R "IR in" port and have that sent via RS232 to the sky+ box....

    Hi Graham,

    The RS-232 port on all current Sky boxes do not have any control interface. You will therefore have to use I/R by connecting an emitter to the AV192R.

    Hopefully the new hi-def Sky boxes will have an RS-232 interface.

    Regards,

    Steve
