OK, this might be more difficult than I first thought. The only Sky+ image that Sling produce has the standard Interactive and Services buttons at the top, but the BIN file I have contains 4 non-standard functions : Foxtel, Active, Planner & Setup. So only 2 of those can be mapped to those 2 buttons. I'm guessing your image is perhaps not the same as Sky+, can you show me a picture ?
Anyway, here is the first attempt, to make sure 90% of it works.

this is an amazing effort. I will try and give it a go and report back.
I suspected it might not be so easy. I have tried to attach a pic but it
won't let me for some reason. Will keep trying.
Realise it is different from Sky+ but think they are similar.
Sky + and Foxtel both have TV guide
Sky+ has box office and Foxtel has On Demand.
Sky+ has services and Foxtel has active.
Sky+ has interactive and Foxtel has planner.
Think they all pretty much do the same thing but with different names.
The major difference is Setup on Foxtel, which is mute on Sky+. I have
never used this button before. Seems pretty useless.
Thanks so much again for all your effort so far.

That's OK, the picture came through. I need to see if I can find a black version. New one attached that adds the Active & Planner and also the Foxtel button which I had forgotten.

OK, you are not following the installation instructions then ? What Slingbox are you using ?
And here is a new copy that uses the black image, use the S1401_PL.BIN file
Sorry I am still getting the standard remote even with 1401.pl.
I reset it and then went for pick, foxtel and then custom as the code is less than 1999. I tried it with Sky also but the same result.
Sorry probably doing something stupidly wrong at my end.

I don't have a 350 but do have a 500 and it went in first time for me, but as you found, you need to select Sky as the manufacturer.
Do I understand you need the same done for the other models ? or do they use the same codes ?
Next thing you need to do is 'tweak' the image so the button labels are correct. I have written instructions on how to do that at
but be aware it is not for the faint-hearted
Thank you so much again.
I have a Pro as well but don't really use it anymor . Thinking of getting a 500 but assume the same files will work with that.
Out if interest how comes you need to select Sky for this to work and produce the skin?
And thanks for the tutorial. I will give it a go......and probably have to come back later to repair everything!!
So added as a discussion as Alan may be able to help us. Thanks again.
See this has been ongoing for years. Although we have .bin work arounds, makes sense with the number of users here in Oz to have the IQ2 remote with the correct skin available.
The skin is the same as used in Sky+ in the UK.
So we are looking at:
Foxtel IQ2 HD
Model TDC851NF / TDS851NF
Come on Slingmedia, give the Aussies some love!
