A: Yes there are two types of lead it depends if the Control4 box behave as if it was a PC or a terminal. The KiraQ will connect with a straight through lead to a PC. So as RS232 boxes have to connect input to output, if the Contol4 box also connects to a PC with a straight through lead then the Control4 inputs and outputs would be the same as the KiraQ in that case you would need a crossover or null modem lead to connect the KiraQ to the control4. If the control4 connects to a PC with a null modem lead then it is the opposite of a KiraQ and can be connected to a KiraQ with a straight through lead.

A: There should be no perceivable delay using a KiraQ. I am not sure how
demoPad would address it, the quickest would be to use UDP to send the IR data, but even the RS232 would still come in at under 10 mS per key. (Quicker than a remote control keypress). So pretty quick unless there is some sort of delay in Demopad.
Note there is a built in 100mS delay AFTER each send to make scrolling
and channel up behave similarly to a remote control.

A: You can use a IRPRO4 and connect one of the Pro4 outputs to the KiraQ using a KLDE6M lead. That would allow you up to 4 IR receivers. If the old coax is still in place, you could also use SKY eyes with an RF2IR connected to the KiraQ with a KLDE6M.
The SkyQ mini wil work with the KiraQ but it would have a different IP address to the main Sky Q so could not be controlled by the same KiraQ at the same time, a second KiraQ would be preferred.

A: Yes you can connect the KIRAQ to an IRCM. You would need a KLDE6M for this or connecting to our kit and a KIRT if connecting to some other kit.

A: Yes it can.
