OK, here is the scenario:
SKY+ HD box located centrally in the house in a cupboard
TV wall mounted in Living Room, and the TV is connected to the SKY box via HDMI.
Problem: Can't use the Sky remote as no line of sight owing to box being located elsewhere
Solution 1: Sky + app for iOS. Not ideal, as you cannot get Sky Guide or any of the settings to display on the TV, and at best trying to find something to watch can be 'painful' using an iPad
Solution 2: a Harmony Remote?
I know nothing of these devices, but could it be used to mimic the Sky remote?
Having looked at Logitech's website I am none the wiser, so I'm looking for real world experience!
In essence, does the Harmony 'hub' live in the cupboard, and link to the Sky box via IR, and then the remote communicates to the hub?
Thanks in anticipation....
