Switch on your Sky Q box and TV at the same time

If you have a compatible TV, you can set it up to switch on automatically when you turn on your Sky Q box from standby, and it'll even select the right HDMI port. This feature is called HDMI One-Touch-Play and is on by default.

Before you start, make sure your TV has the Consumer Electronics Control (CEC) feature available (some TV manufacturers have a different name for it). Check the user guide to see if your TV has this.

Setting it up 

  1. Press Home on your Sky Q remote, then select Settings, followed by Setup.
  2. Select Audio visual, then HDMI control and turn it on.
