Sky+ HD / Sky Q Driver

Sky is  British satellite broadcast service provider.  Chowmain has developed an IP based driver that provides control over UK based Sky set top boxes.  This IP driver eliminates the need to attach infra red emitters to the set top box and is compatible with the Sky+ HD, Sky Q and Sky Q mini boxes.  On top of IP control the driver also provides automatic channel media list updates into Control4's RF_SKY cloud.  This ensures that the channel listing on Control4's user interface is always upto date with the latest channels for that particular region.  We also provide a replacement RF_SKY cloud which provides HD cover art, now playing meta data for all channels and always has upto date channels without importing into Control4.
