A wizard TELLY as revealed a clever and very practical Sky TV trick.
You have probably been using your Sky TV for years without ever knowing the secret code “0 0 1”.
It’s a quick trick to delete all your recordings in one go.
One of the best features of Sky Q is the ability to save content.
But if you’ve downloaded too much, it can get cluttered and clog up your storage.
Now @wadesramsey from TikTok has released some very clever TV knowledge.
First, press the Home button on the Sky Q remote.
Then, scroll down to Settings but Not click on it.
Then press “0 0 1” on the remote control, then select (it’s the middle button).
Now go to Reset, then to Reset Hard Drive.
It will completely delete all your apps and recordings on Sky Q.
You can restore your Buy & Keep purchases at Sky.com/restore.
You should only do this if you are happy to clean your car and start over.
For some people, it may cause more headaches.
Of course, this isn’t the only way to quickly delete content.
You can cancel entire series at once using another Sky TV trick.
To delete episodes individually, press the Sky button at the top of the Sky remote to access your recordings.
Scroll to the recording you want to remove and select it. Then scroll and select Delete.
To delete all recordings of a TV show, scroll down to Sort by and then select AZ.
Scroll down to the TV show you want to remove and scroll right. Select Delete all and then Confirm.
Another tip …
Each Sky Q touch remote control has a built-in location mechanism.
It means you’ll never lose it again … unless you accidentally left it miles away from your home.
But if you’ve dropped it on the back of the sofa or accidentally put it in the kitchen bin, you’ll be able to find out.
The remote has a built-in speaker that can beep if you’ve lost it.
First make sure your home is quiet so you can hear the tracker beep.
Then press the Q button on the front of your Sky Q box.
After a few seconds, the Sky Q Touch / Sky Q remote control associated with the voice control will beep.
This beep will only last for 30 seconds, so if you don’t find it at that time, you’ll need to restart the process.
If it doesn’t work at all, the Sky Q remote’s battery may be dead.
It is also possible that the Sky Q remote control is no longer in the building and cannot be reached by the Sky Q box.
