Dusky Control - I/O Port Serial controllers
This page is dedicated to controllers for the Amstrad DRX595 Sky HD box and the Amstrad DRX890W / DRX895W Sky+HD boxes with built in wifi. These controllers are primarily used with home automation units such as Crestron, Control4 or AMX.
They connect to the 10 pin mini-din I/O port on the rear panel of the DRX595/DRX890W/DRX895W. If you are looking for a controller for a Sky, Sky+ or Sky+HD box that has an RF2 port, please see our range of controllers that connect to the RF2 port.
The protocol documentation is in the documentation section of this website.

This controller is capable of controlling one SkyHD (DRX595) box via a 8N1 RS232 connection (baud rate is configurable).
Power is drawn from the SkyHD box connected to the controller via the same I/O port connection (10 pin mini-din) used to inject the controller signal.
The protocol is identical to our RF2 controllers.
Price: £60 including UK P&P
