If it's a pairing issue, there's a clever way to reconnect the remote to your Sky Glass or Sky Stream.

You just need to press and hold the 7 and 9 buttons at the same time for three seconds.

If you're still having no luck, there might be something wrong with your remote.

In which case, you'll need to speak to Sky – and it may be time to arrange a replacement.
