Bonus trick #1 – Hidden remote button
Your Sky TV remote has a hidden button hiding in plain sight.
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.
Bonus trick #2 – Movie quotes
A clever Sky TV hack is perfect if you're always forgetting the names of movies.
It lets you quickly track down a film simply by using a famous quote.
You simply use the voice control function on your Sky remote.
Press the microphone button and then say the famous quote.
For instance, saying "You can't handle the truth!" will bring up A Few Good Men.
And "My Precious" will get you The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers.
There are dozens of quotes that you can try the feature with.
