    Can SlingCatcher relay IR remote commands from other remotes?

    cmsdloma Newbie

      Hi,

       

      I am thinking about buying a SlingCatcher because I would like to watch my Sky HD in other parts of the house which have a TV but not a computer.

       

      We have spare Sky remotes, and would like to use them to utilize the PVR functionality easily.  Since the Slingbox has the IR transmitter nodes, all the hardware is present.

       

      Is the SlingCatcher capable of relaying the IR commands received from any remote, or is it necessary and only possible to use the noddy SlingCatcher remote?

       

      Sling: please advise.

       

      Many thanks,

      Dave
