sky q airplay

Sky Q customers who have complained about a blue light on their box have been advised of an effective workaround.

Many users believe the blue light that shows when they are playing back recordings is far too bright, with one person stating on the Sky forum that it is like having a laser pen shining at them.

While some have considered sticking tape or light dimming stickers over the light, others have found a more high-tech but still simple solution.

Users can switch the light off by swiping right on their remote touchpad or pressing right on their normal remote. They must then press the BACK (or DISMISS) button on their remote.

While this does not permanently disable the light, it could offer some relief to those who have been dazzled or frustrated by it since switching to Sky Q.
