      my tv is ancient and doesn't have a USB port so am considering installing an extra power socket to power said dongles.

      cheers,

      The usb port on both the Sky q 2tb and mini can power a chromecast.

      If you can't get hold of a further Bluetooth remote you could do what I've done. I've also put my Sky Q Mini in the loft and run an HDMI cable down the partition to the back of the wall-mounted TV and to control it I just bought these:
