Sky is a British satellite broadcast service provider. Chowmain has developed an IP based module that provides control over UK based Sky set top boxes. This IP module 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 module also provides a channel list which shows the current and next playing information.


  • Works with
    • Sky Q
    • Sky Q Silver
    • Sky Q Mini
  • Channel listing with channel logo, now playing and next playing information
  • Choose the region the channel listing is from (automatically prompts on first run)
  • All Sky codes available for use in your macros


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.
