After a few seconds, your paired Sky Q Touch / Sky Q remote with Voice Control will beep.

This beeping will only last for 30 seconds, so if you don’t find it in that time, you’ll need to restart the process.

If it doesn’t work at all then it’s possible that your Sky Q remote is out of battery.

It’s also possible that the Sky Q remote is no longer in the building, and can’t be reached by the Sky Q box.

Logo button

Your Sky TV remote has a hidden button hiding in plain sight.

But it's actually very useful.

We're talking about the Sky logo on your remote – yes, it's a button!

If you press it (and you definitely should), it'll bring up your recorded TV shows and movies.

That saves you from having to trawl the various Sky menus to find what you've saved so far.
