Did you know that your Sky remote can control your TV as well as your Sky box? This guide will help you tune your Sky remote to your TV so that you can adjust the volume of your TV, turn it on and off and even change the input source, all from one remote!
How to tune your Sky remote to control your TV.
Before you get started programming your Sky remote to control your TV, you will need to find out the make and model of your TV. You will also need the version number of your Sky remote, this can be found on the sticker on the inside of the battery cover. Your TV’s make and model can be found on the back of the TV set. It’s usually located on badge that looks similar to this:
Once you have your Sky remote version number and your TV’s make and model, you need to find out your TV’s code. You can look this up online.
Once you have your four digit code, follow these steps:
Step One: Press tv on your Sky remote, then hold down select and the red button, until the red light at the top of the remote flashes twice.
Step Two: Enter the four digit code then press select.
That’s it! Your remote control is now tuned to your TV. To check that everything is working, try using the volume button on your Sky remote. If it doesn’t work, it’s possible that you may have entered the incorrect code, so repeat the whole process.
In some cases, it is not possible to tune your Sky remote to your TV. This is quite rare, and only very few models have this problem (but it’s happened to me!).
