  • Is it possible to operate only my TV with the SKY Q Replacement Remote? No. This remote needs to be programmed with both devices TV and Satellite/Freeview box.

  • Why doesn’t the learning work on my SKY Q Replacement Remote? There are a number of reasons why learning might be unsuccessful:
    1. Make sure the original remote that came with the device is in working order, by testing it on your device. If it is not responding, it might not be working correctly.

    2. Make sure you are not performing the learning procedure under bright lighting or in bright sunlight as this can interfere.

    3. Ensure that the two remotes are approximately 2 to 3 cm apart, and that the transmitting end of the original remote is facing the remote. Sometimes holding the key on the original remote down for slightly longer may help, and conversely sometimes quickly pressing and releasing the key on the original works better.

    4. The batteries used should have sufficient power. Even though the remote works when using it to switch on and off devices, it might not have enough power to be able to learn additional functions. Please replace a new set of batteries

    5. It is also possible that the memory on your remote control has reached the maximum capacity due to too many learned or other customized functions. Please remove some existing learned keys, or perform a factory reset to completely wipe the remote’s memory. Click here to see the factory reset procedure for information.

    6. Some manufacturer’s remotes use a different signal, or infra-red protocol, that the One For All remote cannot reproduce. These are commonly signals that use a higher frequency. Radio frequency remotes cannot be learned from, because these signals are not infra-red based.

  • How can I control the AV Key when I have programmed both TV and Satellite on my SKY Q Replacement remote?

    Commonly the AV key is used to select the input on the TV and most TVs use a menu to select from a list of inputs. When the AV key is pressed on the SKY Q Replacement Remote, and a TV and STB have been set up by code, the Menu Up, Down, Left, Right and OK keys will temporarily control the TV. If the OK key is pressed, or no key is pressed for ten seconds, these keys will revert to controlling the set-top box again.

    The AV-feature is enabled as standard as soon as an STB and a TV are set up.

  • Can I operate two or more of the same devices with the SKY Q Replacement Remote? The SKY Q Replacement Remote can operate up to three devices simultaneously, but does not support more than one of its kind. For example, it is not possible to operate two different audio devices next to a set-top box with this remote.

    The powering on/off controls are set up as following:
    • If you have set up a TV and/or an Audio Device, holding down STB POWER key for 3 seconds will send the Power function for all devices set up.
    • If an STB and TV device are set up, the macro will be STB POWER followed by TV POWER.
    • If an STB and Audio Device are set up, it will consist of STB POWER and Audio POWER.
    • If all three devices are set up, the macro will be STB POWER, TV Power and Audio POWER.

  • How can I use the Channel Short Cut Macro’s with the SKY Q Replacement Remote?

    The “Channel Shortcut Macros” is a feature unique to the OFA Sky Q Replacement. These are 4 pre-programmed macros which are accessed by holding down one of the four coloured keys (Red, Green, Yellow, Blue) for 3 seconds. Each macro consists of 3 digits which will jump to a specific channel.

    Genres of channel are grouped by number. For example, the Movie channels begin at number 301 with each subsequent channel (up to 344 at the time of writing) being a Movie Channel. Sports channels begin at 401, News channels at 501 and Kids channels at 601. The pre-programmed macro on Red, Green, Yellow and Blue match these channel numbers, meaning that you can jump directly to the first channel in the list, and then zap through these channels using Channel Up and Down. The name of each genre is printed above the keys.

    This feature is only enabled when using a SkyQ set-top box with code 4662 set up, which it is by default. If this setup code is changed, no macros will be present.

  • How can I reprogram Channel Macros on the SKY Q Replacement Remote? It is possible to reprogram the macros sent by the coloured keys. This feature can be used if the channel numbers have changed. It is also possible to program multiple macros on a single key, so each time the key is pressed, a different channel in the genre will be selected.

    Say for example, the first 3 Sports channels are on channels 200, 221 and 239, it is possible assign shortcuts to these channels on the Green (Sports) key. To do this:
    1. Hold down the Green and the STB Power key until the red LED blinks twice*
    2. Enter the first channel number using the digits (i.e. 200).
    3. Press and release the Green key.
    4. Enter the next channel number (in this example 221).
    5. Repeat Steps 3 and 4 for each channel shortcut you want to add.
    6. After entering the last channel number you want, press and hold the Green key.
    7. The red LED will blink twice and the shortcuts are now programmed.
    * If a TV and/or Audio Device has been set up, make sure to press the Green key slightly before the Power key or the Power macro will be activated instead.

    When watching live TV on Sky, you can simply hold down the Green key for 3 seconds, and the first Channel Shortcut will be sent (in this example channel 200). The next time you hold down the Green Key, the shortcut for the next Channel Shortcut will be sent (in this case channel 221). The macros loop, so once the last one programmed has been sent, the first programmed one will be sent when the key is next held down.

    Each of the different colour keys can be programmed with different lists of channel numbers, by holding down the Power and a different coloured key at step 1, and pressing and releasing the same key at step 3. Up to 10 different channel numbers can be programmed per key, so in total 40 macros can be stored.

    The macros can actually consist of keys other than digits, but this is not communicated to the user. The only keys that cannot be included in the macros are the coloured keys, as they are used to separate macros during programming.

    The macro can only consist of 5 keys. Attempting to program a sixth will give a long blink and exit the programming process without storing the macro.

    To reset the coloured key to default, the procedure is as follows:
    1. Hold down the STB Power and the key to reset (for example the Green key) until the red LED blinks twice.
    2. Press and release the key to reset (for example the Green key).
    3. Hold down the same key (e.g. Green) until the red light blinks twice.
    The key has now been reset. Read more
  • When programming the favourite (shortcut) macros, the red LED doesn’t blink twice If the STB Power key is held down slightly before the other key, the Power Macro can activate. Please try to press both keys at exactly the same time, or press the other key slightly before the Sky Power key. Read more
  • When programming the favourite (shortcut) macros, the LED blinks red and then once green and/or amber If the STB Power key is held down slightly before the other key, the Power Macro can activate. Please try to press both keys at exactly the same time, or press the other key slightly before the Sky Power key. Read more
