You realise you can control your tv and sound system with the Sky remote right? (Provided they are compatible - would have thought they are if a universal remote works).

It's the bose remote from the speakers.. much better than the sky remote, other than it doesn't have a search button!

Need to use that remote so can switch between devices plugged into the sound system... e.g. Sky, PlayStation, android box

In any part of the menu, there is a search button on the remote at the top, type anything and it'll come up in any category

Has anyone used the new voice search? It seems to be working very well.

Press the voice button on the remote and say: "Tune to Sky Atlantic" or "Change channel to 401" or "Play Blue Planet" (if on your planner) or "Go to Sky Cinema" etc

This is now in addition to simply saying the name of a programme or actor, which it will find in the listings if available.

Don’t know about the voice search but my screen keeps going blank at random moments during playback of a recorded programme. Have to rewind and play it again. Anyone else have similar?

Do you lose both sound and picture, or just the picture? If the latter, it might be a faulty/loose HDMI cable.

Have you turned off the Eco settings? If not try that on all of the boxes. Also, try turning off the HDMI Controls in the AV setup menu.

Yes I lose sound and picture. Thanks, will look at other settings. I generally like SkyQ but find the box quite noisy - always clicking and whirring away even on standby - and don't find the menu very intuitive. Picture quality is great though. All seems more stable now I have switched back to BT fibre broadband from Sky.

If you had your favourites it would be just as easy if not quicker skipping through channels.

If I have Sky Q with the 1TB box, is there anything stopping me from just buying the 2TB box on ebay and using that instead? I want 4k and Dolby Atmos.

Yes you can't do it. Unlike ordinary Sky boxes which you own, Q boxes are owned by Sky so when someone cancels a contract the box has to be returned to Sky.

Its highly likely that Sky will cancel your subscription when you try to activate your viewing card in the box and will probably ask for the box to be returned to them.
