Sky is a 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 automatically imports channel artwork and genres for every channel! This makes channel surfing with ELAN that much easier.


  • Works with
    • Sky+ HD
    • Sky Q
    • Sky Q Silver
    • Sky Q Mini
  • 3-10 times faster than IR control
  • No more IR buds
  • Automatic Channel import
    • Updated channel data every 24 hours
    • Always have upto date channels on your ELAN user interface.  Never be effected by channel number changes or when Sky adds or removes a channel again.
    • Select your region and have all the Sky channels automatically import periodically for your area.


Can you give us some examples of how we could use this driver?

  • No more IR buds means no more IR bleeding and accidentally bud knocks.
  • Speed up control over your customer's sky set top box.
  • Never be effected by channel list updates every again.
  • Channel surf via your ELAN user interface.  See what is playing on each channel straight from the touchscreen and/or HR2 remote

What hardware will this work on? 

This will work on any ELAN controller running OS 8.1 or later and with the following sky boxes.

  • Sky+ HD
  • Sky Q
  • Sky Q Silver
  • Sky Q Mini
