Hi ritchie13890

I am also hoping to find something for discrete ON/OFF IR codes for Foxtel iQ3.

As a workaround, currently I use the following macros:
ON: Foxtel button, Back button
OFF: Foxtel button, Power Toggle button

The Foxtel button will discretely turn on the iQ3, but if it is already on it will go to a Foxtel menu. I don't really want to see this menu, so that's why the "ON" macro also includes a "Back button" command.

To turn off, the Foxtel button wakes up the Box (if currently off, or just loads the Foxtel menu if already on). Then the power toggle turns it off.

The problem I have with my current solution is if we have PAUSED something on Foxtel then go to watch a different source (eg. Apple TV), when I run the macro to return to Foxtel, the "Foxtel button" command loads the Foxtel menu, and we lose the paused programme. It is very annoying, and my girlfriend hates it (as do I)

Please post back if you find discrete codes (which won't interfere with a paused state).
