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.

A Crestron driver is available from our software downloads page. A comprehensive driver for Control4 is available from Extra Vegetables.
