      Access to BBC red button

      Sky+ HD: In order to access BBC red button channel 981 on the programme guide (primarily to record the programme on 981 to watch later), is there any way to move there quickly without having to scroll though every channel. I've tried to do this by adding 981 to favourites but I can't find out how to access favourites or to add a channel there. Searching on Google just seems to list Sky Q help.

      Doesn’t typing 981 on the keypad when in the TV guide take you there? Think you have to move cursor down to first channel ie 101 before typing 981. If you have already saved it in favourites, repeatedly pressing the blue button usually takes you through favourites.
      Hope this helps.

      Doh! So simple. I thought I could type 981 but I just couldn't work out where. I can get on to favourites but still don't know how to Add a channel to favourites. Thanks very much.

      Press Services button on remote, then select options, then scroll across to favourites to set up favourites. Move cursor down on to channels then use select to put a tick against channels you want as favourites. Then save.

      Thank you very much, Koala5. The array of menus and sub menus has just got too much for my ageing brain!!!
