Now that I can reasonably control my TV and my AV Amplifier, I wanted to check whether I could also control my Sky+HD box for further automation (e.g. switch the box off if I switch the TV Off).
After little research I stumbled upon a repository from dalhundal that could do almost exactly that. Only issue at the moment is that this is pretty much a one way function, just like using a physical remote control: I can send commands but don’t receive a status back.
I then added a simple Shell Actions in DomotiGa to send the on/off command:
sky-remote-cli 192.168.0.40 power
and the TV Guide button:
sky-remote-cli 192.168.0.40 tvguide
Next step is to look at this page to see if I can retrieve the box’s status.
Above link doesn’t appear to move too much and I found a workaround. Check this page for more…
