    This may be slightly OT, but has anyone tried viewing Sky through their PC? Is it possible to change the channel through the PC, or does it have to be done via the Sky remote? If it's the latter, has anyone done this using their PC and an IR blaster, or something similar?

    I have done this by connecting the Sky box downstairs to my Hauppauge PVR150 capture card in the PC upstairs via a 15m S-Video cable. I can change channels using a One4All remote sender I bought from ebay.

    Hope this helps!
