The logo!

Your Sky TV remote has a secret button that you probably didn't know about.

It serves a very helpful purpose: bringing up your recorded TV shows and movies.

It saves you trawling through your box's various menus to find the content you've 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 that you have 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.

Lost and found

If you lose your remote control, there's an easy way to get it back.

The remote has a built-in speaker that can beep if you’ve lost it.

All you need to do is activate the feature using your Sky box.

The remote control will beep loudly for 30 seconds, allowing you to quickly locate it.

It means you’ll spend less time frantically turning sofa cushions upside down.

If you’ve lost your Sky Q remote control, don’t panic.

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 remote with Voice Control will beep.

Total switch-off

Your Sky TV has the power to switch off your television – not just your box.

To get your Sky remote to switch your TV on or off, you just need to hold down on the main power button for a couple of seconds longer than usual.

If this doesn't work, it means your TV and Sky aren't paired with HDMI control.

But you can set it up.

On Sky Q, just go to Settings, then Remote Control.

Select Sky Q touch remote and go down to Control your TV.

For Sky Stream, go to Settings, then Connected Devices.

Hit Sky remote, then Control your TV.

Follow the on-screen instructions for pairing the two.

Most modern TVs should work.

Once it's done, you can then control the volume and switch your TV on/off with the Sky remote.

Quote it

A clever Sky TV hack is perfect if you're always forgetting the names of movies.

It lets you quickly track down a film simply by using a famous quote.

You simply use the voice control function on your Sky remote.

Press the microphone button and then say the famous quote.

For instance, saying "You can't handle the truth!" will bring up A Few Good Men.

And "My Precious" will get you The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers.
