Dusky Control - list of Sky remote codes

Where the same code is present with and without a key_ prefix, the one with the prefix is the one sent by the (now discontinued) 'Sky Navigator' when the remote is opened up so the keyboard is visible.

To control a Sky HD, you may use either the sky+ codes or the sky HD ones - sky HD boxes respond to both sets of signals.

To control a Foxtel iQ, use the Sky+ codes.

To control a Foxtel Pace 420, use the Sky codes.

Please see the protocol documentation for a full explanation of how to use these control codes.

(*)These codes are included for completeness as they are sent by the sky navigator when it is setup to talk to a sky box. The codes won't do anything went sent to a normal sky box, though I have had an isolated report of a sky+ box that would only accept the sky codes and not the sky+ ones.

(+)The Sky HD boxes respond to both this code and a number of others in the 5XXX space. No official remote control has been issued that sends these codes yet, so it is not known which of the accepted codes is the 'official' set.

Additional codes

ASCII protocolMeaning
plLong press on power key. Sends Sky box into deep standby. Note that hardware limitations in some (but not all) Sky boxes mean it is not possible to bring them out of deep sleep from a Dusky controller. (Available from f/w version 4.0.2)
rResend last command as if key is held down. This can be used to send cursor up/down/left/right repeats faster than the normal commands, for example to scroll fast in the EPG. (Available from f/w version 4.0.7)

Global 'Super Plus Combiner'

If you are using a Global 'Super Plus Combiner', the commands given above will operate the digibox connected to port 0. For the other ports, add the port number to the first byte of the code. For example:

Binary protocol

The binary protocol for the SPC4 is supported on all versions of firmware.
Original code
(Port 0)
Port 1Port 2Port 3

ASCII protocol

An ASCII protocol to control the SPC4 is available in firmware version 1.1.3 and upwards.

This table shows how to send the "Sky" button depending on the type of Sky box and the SPC port it is connected to:
Box typeNo SPC /
SPC Port 0
Port 1Port 2Port 3

SPC4 notes

The Sky Navigator key codes (prefixed 'key_' in the above table) can not be used when a Super Plus Combiner is in use - this is a limitation of the combiner.
