YVM102 error message on BT
Don't know what's happened why we keep getting this message. Have had new mini connectors from bt, and still got same problem. I've been through the help thing over and over again. Can't get BT Player up. We've got Internet, we can record normal channels. But can't get subscription ones (Discovery History etc). Can someone please enlighten me?
Re the mini connectors, please ensure that each of these is directly in a wall socket, and not on any sort of extension cable.
And having ensured this, can you please report here on how the BBC iPlayer, and perhaps other catchup players, perform for you? As these require the internet on your YouView box, but aren’t tangled up with any BT TV subscription considerations.
Welcome to the forum
Can you please let us know the following information:
- Box model & software version it's running on - This can be found by pressing help and then info on your remote. If this doesn't work, you can also find it in Settings > Box information and Software Information.
- Router model - this is usually found on a sticker on the bottom of the router
- Roughly how long this issue has been happening for
- When you usually see the error message and the time of day e.g. when waking up the box or mid-usage
I’ll leave you in Sarah’s capable hands now, but just add that as you can’t get the BBC iPlayer, your YouView box isn’t connected to the Internet, so I presume that when you say “we’ve got internet” you mean in your property generally, rather than on the YouView box specifically.
Not having the box connected will cause all the other issues you see; but there are many and varied reasons why the YouView box might not be connected, from an issue with the box through issues with the mini connectors to issues with the router. And such issues could be due to setup errors, misconfiguration, your environment, corrupted software or even hardware faults.
Anyway, give Sarah the info she requests, but talk to BT anyway, as they are supposed to keep this going for you if you have a BT TV subscription.
