Here’s a new device that will be a boon to custom installers and DIY home automators alike. The Keene Eye Routing Commander (or KERC for short) is a device that allows multiple Sky tuners in the same location – perhaps a cabinet or 19″ rack – to be controlled individually.
The KERC is able to decode the different modes of SKY® IR control signals and route them to specific receiver outputs as required.
It achieves this by making use of a facility already built-in to the remote control. The supplied remote control for each SKY® receiver can be set to one of three different receiver types (standard, SKY+® & SKYHD®) and also to one of four different modes, (0,1,2 & 3) giving a total of 12 possible types of IR code. The KERC is able to distinguish between these different types and route the IR signal accordingly.
- Independently control multiple SKY receivers within the same cabinet
- Provides a “hard-wired” in cabinet solution
- Eliminate IR bleed and cross talk
- Will work with original SKY remotes”
