Welcome to the TalkTalk TV remote control guide. There are several versions of the TalkTalk remote, so please make sure you match your remote to the correct information below.
When you start watching a live TV channel you’ll be able to pause, rewind and fast forward thanks to temporary content stored on your TV Box. We call this delayed TV. Your TV Box only stores content on the channel you're watching from the point you started watching it. And when you change the channel, the temporary storage on your TV Box is wiped.
The storage limit varies depending on which Box you have. For the TalkTalk TV Plus Box it's about 2 hours and for the TalkTalk TV Box it's about 30 minutes. Content storage can also vary when it comes to HD.
Find out more about the features and controls using the table below:
Skip back to a previous point on the channel you're viewing. This takes you into delayed TV.
Pause live TV
Skip through the stored content up to the point of real-time TV. Check the time bar at the bottom of the screen for the fast forward limit.
Play live TV at any point
Exit delayed TV and return to live. A warning will remind you that all stored content for this channel will be deleted.
On Demand uses all the features above, without the limitations of the temporarily stored content. That means you can skip, fast-forward, pause and rewind as much as you like. You can also watch programmes more than once, as long as they're available.
Your TalkTalk remote control will automatically sync up with your TalkTalk TV Box, however, will not auto-sync with your television. If you need to adjust the volume on your TV, you can do this by pairing it with your TalkTalk remote.
Before you start, turn the volume of your TalkTalk TV Box up to a high setting using your TalkTalk remote. This will ensure that the sound isn't too quiet after pairing.
