    Welcome to the forum degsie,
    You don't mention model of Youview box or is it a Sony TV with built-in Youview?
    Have you retuned your TV's own tuner? Can you do a manual retune on TV set?
    I know the Youview box can't do manual retunes, only receive strongest signal from nearest transmitter.

    Have you been able to obtain correct Itv region before on your Youview box? Might be worth doing a full maintenance reset (instructions via maintenance reset top of page under search bar via help/support).
    Might be a job for aerial engineer to adjust to correct transmitter, unless you are able to try adjusting yourself. Please let the forum know how you get on. If still problems, Youview HQ are back in action tomorrow morning for more advice. John L
    Can't wait for the day when Youview get rid of the dreaded darkened banner when using fast forward/rewind recordings.

    Re youview box
    When you retune the channels you are also given the option of selecting your peculiar region as part of the process. 
    Ignore this if you disagree.

    Hi Kodikid,
    This maybe true depending where you live. My Youview tunes channels with no prompt for area, so I can assume if you live between more transmitters you will be given the option when tuning. John L

    I googled the problem and youview came up. I don't have a youview box but a Humax fvp 4000T. But it seems the problem not the receiver but the transmitter.

    Sensible choice of Pvr Degsie. 
     At least Humax support their Remote app for the fvp4000t & the fvp5000t, unlike Youview at the moment. Glad we could help with some suggestions. John L

    Hi Mike_taylor,
    Interesting. Are you able to select which tv area when tuning your Youview?
    I can get all the other itv regions around uk on my old Humax Foxsat pvr + also be able to record them. The new Freesat models don't allow you & you can only watch area depending on your postcode. John L
