Whether you have a Sky+ or Sky Q box, this guide will help you pair your Sky remote to your TV in no time. 

How to connect your Sky Q remote to your TV

Pairing your Sky remote to your television is easy, just follow the steps below: 

  1. Press Home on your Sky Q remote
  2. Select Settings > Setup > Remote Control 
  3. Select the remote you’re using
  4. Select Control your TV then select your TV brand
  5. Select Find it for me
  6. Hold down 1 and 3 together, and enter the code that appears

Test whether or not your remote has paired successfully with your TV by operating the volume buttons. If this doesn’t change the volume on your TV, press No, try another. 

If you still can’t get your Sky remote to pair with your TV, factory reset your remote by holding down 7 and 9 and try the steps again. 

Once the volume on your TV is able to be changed by your now paired Sky Q remote, finish the pairing process by selecting either yes or no when asked if you have a Sky Soundbox or speaker system.

Set up touch control with your Sky Q remote

How to connect your Sky+ remote to your TV

If you didn’t know, you can also connect your Sky+ remote to your TV so that it can control both your Sky box and your television, just follow the steps below. 

1. Identify your Sky+ remote version

You can identify your Sky+ remote by taking the underside battery cover off of your remote. On the inside of the battery cover itself you should be able to see your Sky+ remote version starting with ‘rev’. Out of all possible versions, it should look something like this:

  • rev. 4
  • rev. 6
  • rev. 8
  • rev. 9
  • rev. 10

The version of your Sky+ remote might determine the code you enter to pair to your TV. 

2. Find the model of your TV

Each TV brand has its own code needed to connect your Sky remote to it. Below are some popular TV brands and their respective Sky codes needed for remote pairing. 

  • Sony - 0679, 0533, 0038, 0039
  • Panasonic - 0678, 0254, 1791, 1546
  • Samsung - 0646, 0840, 0584, 1523

Next, enter one of the codes above if it corresponds correctly to the make of your TV. 

Test to see whether you’ve been able to pair your Sky remote to your television by trying to operate the TV, by attempting to change channel or alter the volume.
