How to Connect Your Sky Q Remote to Your TV Volume

If you’ve recently gotten a Sky Q remote, you’ll want to set it up to control your TV volume so that you don’t have to use the standard remote as well. This article will guide you through the process of connecting your Sky Q remote to the TV volume for major TV brands like LG, Samsung, Hisense, and Sony.

Overview of Sky Q Remotes

Sky Q remotes are designed to work seamlessly with Sky Q boxes, which offer a range of features such as 4K Ultra HD content, live and on-demand programming, and access to streaming services like Netflix and Spotify. The Sky Q remote is an essential tool for navigating these features, and programming it to control your TV volume adds even more convenience to your viewing experience.

Step-by-Step Guide

  1. Turn on your TV using the standard remote.
  2. Make sure your Sky box is switched on.
  3. Press the “Home” button on your Sky Q remote to access the main menu.
  4. Scroll down and select “Settings.”
  5. Navigate to “Setup,” then “Remote control.”
  6. You’ll see three different remote options. If you have Sky Q, choose one of the first two options. If you have an older version, you might need to select one of the other options.
  7. The next step is to find the code that pairs the remote with your TV. You can do this in two ways:
    • a. If you know the model number of your TV, you can select “I know it” and input the model number.
    • b. If you don’t know the model number, select “Find it for me.” This option will generate a list of codes for your TV brand.
    • c. See if your TV is covered on our guide to Sky Q TV codes.
  8. For LG, Samsung, Hisense, and Sony TVs, you can visit their respective websites to find the specific model number or consult the user manual that came with your TV. If you still can’t find the model number, you can use the “Find it for me” option to try out different codes until you find the one that works.
  9. Once you have a code, press and hold the “1” and “3” buttons on the Sky Q remote for two seconds. The red light on the remote will flash to indicate it’s ready for the code.
  10. Enter the code using the Sky Q remote’s number pad. If successful, the red light on the remote will flash twice (continue prompt above). Test the volume control on the Sky Q remote to see if it works.

Test Volume Control

Now it’s time to test your newly programmed Sky Q remote! Press the volume up, down, or mute buttons on your Sky Q remote to see if they control your TV volume as intended. If everything is working correctly, congratulations! You’ve successfully connected your Sky Q remote to your TV volume.

If the volume control doesn’t work, repeat steps 8-9 with another code until you find the one that works for your TV.

Troubleshooting Sky Q Remote Not Controlling TV Volume

If you find that your Sky Q remote isn’t controlling the volume on your TV, it’s possible that you need to set up your remote. Don’t worry, though; you might still be able to use some of the other functions on the remote. In this section, we’re here to help you with some troubleshooting tips to get your remote working properly again.

If you have a Sky Q touch remote or Sky Q remote with Voice Control, follow these steps:

  1. Press and hold the “7” and “9” buttons until the light on the remote flashes. This will reset the remote.
  2. Press and hold the “1” and “3” buttons until the light flashes.
  3. Select “Next” and follow the on-screen instructions.

If you have a Sky Q remote or Sky Q Accessibility remote, follow these steps:

  1. Press “Home” on your remote.
  2. Select “Settings,” then “Setup,” followed by “Remote Control.”
  3. Select the remote you’re using.
  4. Select “Control your TV,” then “Find it for me,” and follow the on-screen instructions.

Please note: If your TV brand doesn’t appear within the “Find it for me” section, then it can’t be controlled by your remote. The TV database is updated regularly, so check back at a later date.

Conclusion

Connecting your Sky Q remote to the TV volume for LG, Samsung, Hisense, Sony and other TVs can be a straightforward process if you know the model number of your TV. If not, you may have to try different codes until you find the one that works. Once the remote is paired with your TV, you can control the volume and other features using just the Sky Q remote. Happy viewing!
