Hi, Have just has Sky + installed. Is it possible to "permanantly" disable the red interactive button. I know you can cancel during a programme bur after an ad break it comes back.

I did have Sky about 3/4 years ago and it was then possible to permanantly disable but I cant seem to find how to do it now.

Thanks. Schmollies

The red dot goes if you press the red button quickly followed by backup, but once you change channels it will return to default.

I have had Sky+ for years and the red button is a real pain. Once you have got rid of it, not only does it come back on after an advert or if you change channels, it always comes back on after a short while even if neither of the above happens.

I would have thought that the red button has been around long enough now for viewers not to need a screen reminder that it is available.
