Set up without internet

I have read it is not possible to set up the box without a router. So my question is if I set it up using a friends router, unplug it and then plug it in again at my home will it work?

    you only need to set it up once and once it's done It will work as a freeview box.
    But no internet also means no youview. Which means no scroll back and no iplayer etc.

    Thank you for your reply. To clarify I can record the normal channels so to speak  bbc, ITV, etc but until I get broadband i miss out on the being able to watch and record the special channels and the other functions that the box offers?

    Yes, it's basically a freeview recorder. When you do get broadband make sure the router is near the box as the youview box is not WiFi enabled.
