Suddenly we are unable to get teletext to come up with youview switched on. With youview in standby we are able to get teletext using the TV remote. Not a major problem but an annoyance as my husband likes to start his day 'reading' the news.
Try the corresponding SD channel(s) instead.
Completely non-destructive, but will blow any crud or bit-rot out of its little tubes.
I've tried to force it to happen to see what causes it but can't find anything..
Mine is a Humax box and I am definitely on BBC SD channels. When in this condition I have tried BBC1, BBC2 & BBC News channels. 8 sec reboot, fixes it. At other times can't be bothered to reboot and go to the TV tuner instead. So the only extra info I can add, is that without the reboot, the next day (for example), the red button service has returned 'all by itself'. The box would have been in standby overnight. No big deal but would be nice to get it resolved.
If that's the case then there is a shortcut button on the remote control called AD (with an Up Arrow on it) or on the newer version of TalkTalk remotes it is called Audio Des.
This can toggle Audio Description on/off.
The service is still available on the BBC radio stations.
The old red button service is very much still in existence, but not on YouView boxes.
On my Samsung TV pressing RED calls up the Red Button+ service, however pressing the TEXT button calls up the old red button text service.
This is exactly what used to happen with YouView until a now distant firmware update was pushed out disabling the TEXT button action.
I was talking about the red button service on YouView boxes. I use the old red button service regularly on my TV, but I quite like the new service as well.
It doesn't. So it's a less than an acceptable work around isn't it.
I did miss the old Teletext service to start with but I have got used to it no longer being there.
But you have already been told that multiple times on the BT Forum.
Take the BBC iPlayer for instance. Launching it from the guide or the Players screen directly takes 5 seconds on a T2000 or T2100 (what did it used to be on a T1000, 21?). Whereas Red Button+ access is near instantaneous. From there one flick up and bang, theres the BBC iPlayer. Its also the only Player to make HD content available. Using the Red Button is also my recommended way to access it.
1. Your a better multitasker than me and -
2. You can.
More detail on (2) please especially how I can watch the BBC1 news at the same time on the YouView box as reading the football news on the text. Used to be able to but guess what
