To control your Sky box, you would need to use a separate IR
transmitter (blaster) device to have it happen occur automatically
through MythTV. Popular ones seem to include the RedEye remote, but it
should be possible using a regular serial-port based one (assuming it
can transmit RC6 codes which is what my Sky Navigator remote uses)

This thread contains some useful information:
and the archive is a great place to start looking for information on
"general" questions. I can't see anything on the MythTV wiki at the
moment, but that's also a very useful source of info.
