I have a Desa fireplace with the above control on it. I am trying to either 1) establish a standing pilot, as indicated may be done by the manual on the control;, or, 2) connect a wireless remote thermostat (Skytech 3301P) into the system. The manual with the thermostat says that it will work on an electronic spark ignition. This is not a millivolt type system.

The fireplace works well using the wired 2 button remote, but with this system, the pilot extinguishes when the system is turned off.

I would appreciate any help from anyone who has experience on this type system.
