You’ve probably picked the remote up thousands of times without noticing it.

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.

Anything that you’ve recorded on the Sky box will appear.

And you can press the button from anywhere in the Sky menu to instantly navigate to those recordings.

That’s not all

Your Sky Q box also has a hidden button feature too.

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 and hold 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.

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.
