I have not seen much info on remote control solutions for my skystar1 so i have been having a look on the net today. Sateuropa do offer a remote control for £20 plus £70 for the interface to use it. But i have found that a simple serial port infrared reciever which can easily be made or bought http://www.zapway.de/e_index1.htm this will allow u to use any existing remote which u own and let u record macros to perform many functions on your P.C. i will let u know how i get on. If anybody else is using a remote for there skystar can u please let me know how u are getting on.
