YOUR Sky TV remote control is full of secrets – and you’ve probably missed a few.
For example, there are some handy remote shortcuts you can use to quickly navigate your TV guide.
If you’ve ever used the Sky TV guide, finding exactly what you want can sometimes feel like a pain.
Luckily, there are a few remote control tricks you can use to quickly jump around.
If you press the fast-forward button on a Sky Q remote, you can skip forward 24 hours in the guide.
That means you can see what’s going on tomorrow (and beyond) in seconds.
If you click rewind, you will also be transported back 24 hours.
If you want to dive deep into the guide and know what’s on, just hit the play button.
This could shave minutes off your daily browsing if you remember to use the shortcuts.
Of course, that’s not the only Sky TV remote control trick you should know.
Here are a few more…
Hide in plain sight
Your Sky TV remote has a secret button you probably didn’t know about.
It serves a very useful purpose: viewing your recorded TV shows and movies.
It saves you from digging through your box’s various menus to find the content you saved for later.
We’re talking about the Sky logo – yes, it’s a button!
Press it to bring up your recordings, which is anything you’ve chosen to download and save for later.
It’s a simple trick, but one that many people don’t know – even if they’ve had Sky Q for years.
Find your lost remote control
If you lose your remote, there’s an easy way to get it back.
The remote control has a built-in speaker that will beep if you lose it.
All you have to do is activate the function via your Sky box.
The remote will beep loudly for 30 seconds so you can find it quickly.
That means you’ll spend less time frantically turning sofa cushions upside down.
Don’t panic if you lost your Sky Q remote control.
First, make sure your house is quiet so you can hear the beep.
Then press the Q button on the front of your Sky Q box.
After a few seconds, your paired Sky Q Touch / Sky Q Voice Remote will beep.
This beep lasts only 30 seconds. So if you don’t find it in that time, you’ll have to restart the process.
