Change TV source with a SKY remote



I don’t know about you, but nothing, and I mean nothing, is worse than getting off your ass – setting down your beer, to change the TV source from SKY to your blu-ray player or media center.

Yes, first world problems, and all that… But it can be a slight irritant. I accidently found out last week, that the SKY remote can do this for you! A lazy man’s dream.

This is what I did, and it worked for me with a Samsung TV.


  1. On the Sky remote select TV (remember to press SKY when you are finished this if you want to control SKY)
  2. Press the ‘help’ button on the remote to switch between inputs eg. AV HDMI, PC and so on.
  3. This step may not apply to you, but for me, the samsung TV left the source list on the tv screen – i.e it did not time out and covered some of the screen, pressing the ‘i’ button removed this for me.

I hope this works for you, and don’t forget when you switch back to SKY Tv to press the blue SKY button to re-control SKY TV.
