Magic remote and Sky Plus

Question

Hi all - just purchased a new OLED48CX6LB and looking to use the magic remote to control my sky plus box.   I’ve managed to figure out most controls with the exception of being able to set a programme to record from the planner (the equivalent of pressing R on the sky remote)

is there any way to do this ?

thanks in advance for any help

@Penfold From what I understand, the Sky Plus box  is similar to many older Set-Top-Box PVR boxes, in that they do not fully support HDMI-CEC for proper control of connected devices. This is similar to the Foxtel boxes here in Australia, certainly my old iQ2 box is similar, and I hear that even their new iQ4 box is not fully HDMI-CEC compliant. I saw on  another forum, tha the Sky Q box SHOULD be OK for doing the Record from the TV Guide, but if you cannot get an upgrade deal (threatening to cancel often gets a result), then consider one of those multi-remote gadgets, I hear that the Harmony Remote will cover most requirements. If you DO decide on the Harmony Remote, I think that HDMI-CEC needs to be off on your TV HDMI setings options.

      I added a programme to the favourites list and since then the TV continually flashes between a programme and the 'Live TV' symbol shown in the Home display.
      No input from the remote control is accepted, the flashing continues.
      Tried turning the power off and restarting, no change.
      Turning TV off and on, bo change.
      Leaving it off or on, no change.

      Having read advice on this site I bought a WD 2.5" SSD plus USB adapter so that I could pause and record FreeSAT which is built-in to the TV.  Is there a particular way to set up the drive and if so how?  I've plugged the drive in and can connect to it via Settings but it only offers the options of using media stored on the drive to be shown on screen.  I want to pause live TV and record it.  Does anyone know if this can be done please?

      Is this reported ?
      The Remote ceases to - Mute & control sound volume, following any use of "Quick access" (long press on numbers)
      Power off the TV - Power back on, returns function until "Quick access" is used again.

      LG50UK6950. The programme guide is slow to load, and has to re-load for each page. My previous LG tv (a 49UK.....) was the same.
      Samsung, Panasonic, Toshiba and Sony are almost instantaneous.
      Is this a hardware problem, eg lack of memory, or software - in which case is it ever going to be fixed?

      my original magic remote is on its very last half-a-leg.  i ordered what was supposed to be a suitable replacement as i was informed that my particular model remote had been discontinued.  the new remote is an LG AN-MR700 and it will not register to my LG webOS tv.  i can control power and volume only.  pressing the ok wheel attempts to register but comes back as fail after about 30 seconds.
