Test channel?

Why can I not change channel? Whenever I go onto guide it starts skipping through the hundreds of channels to the test channel. Then gets stuck there? Please help ASAP, missing my favourite shows!

    Test Channel? Are we talking about a YouView box here, or the YouView side of a Sony TV set, or some other device completely?

    If a YouView device, what make and model, who is your ISP, is the box on a current subscription, and (if you can look in Settings OK) what software version is it on?

    This information will help us assist you further.

    In the meantime, you can always reach any given channel on a YouView box by pressing the relevant number keys, and make any required recordings by using the YouView app.
