I noticed my box was on channel 999 this morning so guess I've had the update (not checked yet) how do favourites work? Is the voice control only available on the touch remote?

Yes you need the touch remote for voice.

Once setup favourites can be accessed by keying the number you setup if you know it 1-99 to go directly to the required channel or you can swipe left when the mini guide is up to enter your list of favourites. You can also access it from the TV guide.

Re: General Sky TV Discussion

Thanks. I have the 1tb box, so don't have the touch remote. It has a small hole at the top which looks like it could be for a microphone, so I've always been a bit confused by it!

I appreciate not many want to buy one but they are available should you wish in the future.

Re: General Sky TV Discussion

I'm surprised to see the touch remotes are cheaper than the standard remote. When I looked this time last year when I had it installed the touch remotes were £40. Even at half that price I don't think it's worth it though when I already have a perfectly fine working one, albeit with "old fashioned" buttons!

Frankly this is absolutely laughable by ITV.

ITV is set to hit Virgin Media and Sky with £140m (figure by Liberum's analysts) a year in order for it to carry its main channel, with the implicit threat that the channel could be taken off air if it refuses to pay up.

Not much to get one excited there unless one is called OB.
