it is not a big deal. you can either press Mute button on Tata Sky or
checkout the program guide from the android section of the tv.

Hi Sir, Great to hear...
But how do you differentiate the Talkback voice  when the TV programme is
running? Will the volume MUTE button mutes only the TV programme volume or
the talkback voice also gets muted?
