Fredrussell discovers how to find their Sky Q remote
"Just realised there is a button in the centre of the Q on the Sky Q 2TB box. Gave it a press and was greeted by what sounded like a quiet smoke alarm. Wasn't too impressed and spent a good 5 minutes trying to figure out what it was without any joy.
Went to turn it off with the remote to find out it was actually the touch remote. So it turns out if you lose your remote down the couch you can find it with the touch of a button."
S1 outlines how to quickly access your recordings
"By mistake, just found that by pressing the Sky logo on Q remotes takes you straight to recordings............"

Tarbat:- Swipe UP then swipe RIGHT and it will jump forward
