  • I think buried somewhere within the Settings should be an option to require confirmation on delete; it might be worth turning this on so that you have to select that you really do want to delete something, which should prevent the accidental double-delete problem
I also believe it to be resolved, but mainly because the woodworking show appears to have finished now.
  • I can confirm the problem is not limited to YouView devices, I have the same on my Manhattan T3-R as well. 
  • I too have noticed the timings being off for various recordings the last few weeks. Probably since the Queen passed away and all the resulting schedule disruption - understandably - but it's almost like the AR hasn't worked since the schedule returned to some kind of normality. I would say across all the (main) channels -…
  • I have neither a Pro box nor a BT subscription, but I do have a question. Does anyone know, is there a technical reason why your choice is Antenna OR Internet? It seems like opting for Internet delivery would be a last-resort option given you lose (a) channels and (b) two concurrent recordings (I understand you can record…
  • I have had exactly this behaviour - not waking from standby then completely dead on powering off and back on. Tried and tried and tried - nothing. Gave up and left it unplugged for a couple of days then gave it once last shot and it sprang into life and has been fine ever since. So don't give up hope, just leave it off for…
Are you looking at ITV HD on 103 by any chance? I think you will need to go to the SD version on 3 to get your own local news, unfortunately ITV do not provide many regions in HD, for example I am in the Anglia region but also have Meridian on 103
  • The general crapness of the thumbnails on Youview devices has been covered, a lot, but today I have no internet and I noted on my Manhattan T3-R all thumbnails attached to existing recordings are still perfectly intact; only further recordings made today are (understandably) missing theirs. (I wonder if they will be…
  • My connection is about 30mpbs and I can get a decent UHD live stream on the iPlayer (built in to LG TV, 2018 vintage). It does pretty much saturate my connection. I would say the picture is slightly darker than the standard HD broadcast, or maybe a slight orange tint, which is not noticeable when streaming the UHD shows…
They've given it to me too (Anglia region)
Yes these were really clever. Got one for my nan who struggled with the tiny buttons and display on her VCR remote and she thought this was amazing. Type in a few numbers, pop the unit back on top of the VCR and that was Emmerdale sorted! I was amazed that such a short code - I think in some cases even just one digit…
The T3-R actually does not have the mini TV in the corner of the guide (much to my disappointment); this in fact merely shows a thumbnail from the selected show (as per the recording tiles on YouView). As with YouView, the guide is semi-transparent with the TV visible behind/through it. I actually feel the T3-R a…
Hi, regarding the Roku remote poor battery life - does your Roku power down between uses or does it remain powered the entire time? If the former, that could be the source of the issue - I had it too. I read on a different forum that when the Roku is powered off the remote can then no longer "find" it and goes into…
Interesting, thanks Roy. Further investigation shows I've actually got 2 years of thumbnails and not 1 as I originally thought, on my T2000. The oldest with an image is Tues 5th May 2020, and pretty much everything has an image up to that point. The next-oldest recording is Sun 29th March 2020 and there is no image on…
Not sure on that one either. Although I noted the thumbnails drop off after some time also (looks to be about a year, I have thumbnails going back to last May and nothing for anything older than that) so it will be interesting to see whether the same happens on the Manhattan. Interestingly however it turns out not all…
I'm not sure either of them needs to create the thumbnails so both Dusty and his dog can put their feet/paws up. I have a YouView box and more recently a Manhattan T3-R (due to the sluggishness introduced by the recent "enhancements") and where I have the same programme recorded on both, they appear to share the same…
My BT 2110 Youview box suffered the same problem a while back. I left it completely unplugged for a couple of days before deciding to give it one last try and it sprang back into life, so all may not be lost just yet, maybe just give it a day or two powered off and try again.
  • Hi, When you say "new" box... are you replacing an old one? the recordings would still be on that, they do not move to the new box.
Yes, whilst I appreciate the almost-return of the much-missed jump-to-time feature, I find I activate it accidentally more often than intentionally. I used to love Youview. It had a great interface, and was responsive. I even got used to the tiles, in the end. But each successive update has chipped away at my fondness…
  • Just tried the same on BT TV app (also non subscriber) on Huawei P30/Android 10 (I think) and also working fine there for me.
  • I would also say maybe leave it powered off completely for a day or two; I have one which similarly stopped showing any sign of life despite several power cycles etc... ended up leaving it off for a couple of days then thought I'd give it one last go - on it came as if nothing was ever wrong.
Quite irritated that the new UI, clearly designed then with this faster machine in mind, has been foisted upon older boxes with less capable hardware, very much to their detriment. I have both a Humax T2000 and a BT DTR2110, both of which were perfectly zippy and responsive until the latest interface update which…
  • Hi, I don't use NowTV through the BT box but I have had problems getting it to load on an LG TV the last few days, so could be an issue with NowTV rather than the box itself?
I think you can reset the remote back to controlling the Youview box volume, also I have a vague recollection of being able to override TV control temporarily by holding the AD button or something like that. Personally, I'm not sure why anyone would want to alter the volume on the box? I appreciate people have…
  • I had this same issue the other day but on a Humax T2000 box. It followed deleting some shows from series stacks. I think it was newer shows that I'd seen elsewhere leaving older unwatched ones in the stack. I noted that backing out of the stack left me in an unexpected place in the MyTV page - ie not on the top-level tile…
  • Contains an image of the box and remote
  • From the link: New remote A new Bluetooth remote offers a quicker, smoother experience [...] Is it actually any smoother and quicker, or is it just quick relative to the speed the current boxes have been reduced to with the latest update?
You get the darkened screen for about 5 seconds, then it clears to leave an un-polluted still image.
  • I would venture that it's more button presses now because it's so flippin' slow to react that you press again thinking it didn't register only for it to overshoot what you were after and then have to go back again. Never had this problem before.
it's not just you I'm afraid... cluttered and obviously a complete shock to anyone who doesn't frequent these pages and the team at Youview REALLY need to take note of this
