That went right over my head  :| NowTV won’t bring YouTube with it, and nor will it replace it. Are you possibly confusing the NowTV devices, which do have YouTube (and are a good cheap way of adding this to a setup that hasn't g…
  • @Talman Well worth you posting, to let us know that deleting a (presumably) corrupted schedule pulls things out straight again!
  • These channels come from your ISP, probably BT, possibly PlusNet or TalkTalk. If I could, I would move away from BT, to avoid them; but where I live I am stuck with BT. When we move, who else we can get internet from will be a big consideration. L…
  • Hi @BillyBart So, best as I can tell from what you wrote, you replaced a broken TV with a secondhand TV that you had obtained, make and model unspecified, but one which had both HDMI and SCART inputs, and your YouView box (make and model unspecifi…
  • And if it’s not the transmitter, contact a local aerial specialist for help. An indoor aerial not working either points to a transmitter problem, but there are some locations where an indoor aerial won’t get anything, even though the transmitter is…

Plug the aerial directly into your TV, and retune that. What happens?
  • @Newbie986 Try the Maintenance Mode Options 1, 2 and 4, in that order, pausing between them to see if the box starts behaving itself, in which case no need to try the more drastic option(s). All of these Options preserve your recordings, though y…

Our trusty aneroid is rocking 1008/756 at the moment. That, and the reappearance of light rain, suggests the high pressure is over, at least in the midlands and southwest.
  • @kodikid You have always had to wait for an official announcement from YouView of any new service they might be adding.
  • @oliverhague Those numbers are awful; SQ should be 100, or nudging it. I would suspect aerial failure, or has anyone said “can’t see what this is for” about a little box plugged in the mains somewhere, which is actually feeding DC up an aerial ca…
  • @jonesh Yes, you are quite right; I missed that @John214 reported that the YouView box was working over Xmas  :/ Which means that my explanation of how this failure could have been caused by a late update falls to the ground; and so I revert to …

@jonesh Hey, don’t give away all my secrets! An obscure emoji is worth a paragraph of uninformed speculation   :#:smile: As I understand it, though, it did update itself immediately it was reconnected, after @John214 installed i…
  • Maintenance Mode doesn’t use the remote. I think OK in this context means pressing the power button in the middle of the ring on the front of the box. Option 1 doesn’t do much, though. If you don’t want to keep any recordings, use Option 5 for a co…
  • @auntieem If it is connected to the internet, and to a Freeview aerial, and you have done a Factory Reset (hence the 100% free space), then it should be asking you to set it up again - tune it in and so on. If it won’t do this, then I would try a…
  • Hi @kizziibob We have widened our scope lately to cover other devices for the owners of YouView equipment, but you don’t say if you have any such or not. Can you clarify this? But getting All4, or the itv Hub, to resume, or even start, after they …
  • @jonesh @John214 I believe that a YouView box checks on startup how long it is since it last checked for updates, and if it is a long time, it will do it immediately. This used to discombobulate people trying to keep their boxes on YouView OldGen…
  • @John_in_CM I’m surprised it is stuck there. Maybe the Back or Exit buttons on the remote will get you out of it? But it thinks it is still connected to BT from its previous owner, so it needs to be connected to the internet, to sniff your actual …
  • A small thought - thinking more about it, I reckon Repeater Mode would actually work, as long as the TP-Link still monitors the Ethernet link in that Mode. But it would also have the TP-Link broadcasting the router SSID, as if it was the router; an…
  • Greetings Choochie, and welcome to the Community! We have this Service Alert at the moment, which could very well be the cause:- SIGNAL LOSS DUE TO HIGH ATMOSPHERIC PRESSURE High pressure weather conditions are currently causing picture break up o…
  • @powellj3 I suggest you read those documents, then. I think you will be satisfied.

Because there isn’t any customer-facing support provided by YouView any more  :'( But the DTR-T2100 is a BT subscription box, and BT is supposed to help with these, even for users no longer - or never - on subscription. They might…
  • YouView hold the Schedule for your box, but don’t and can’t maintain it. It’s normal for past scheduled programmes not to be shown on the box itself, only upcoming ones, though the App shows both. and again, the schedule on the box only shows the n…
  • @John L As it’s a T2000, it can only be retail. Good thought about a possible warranty claim though, if it comes to that.
  • I think Repeater Mode is wrong. Maybe whoever advised you to use this didn’t understand what you were trying to do? But don’t take my word for it, look up both Modes on the TP-Link site, first Repeater Mode:- https://www.tp-link.com/uk/support/faq/3…
  • Can’t lay my hands on it at the moment, but I have found that it’s client mode you want, as in:- https://www.tp-link.com/uk/support/faq/612/?utm_medium=select-local There seem to be earlier firmware versions of this nanorouter, which may be where …
  • @“Alex Collett” EE should learn to use Google  :p https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=wr702n&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&hl=en-gb&client=safari I’ll go and poke in my bits box for my TP-Link, see which one it was, but it was working fine on …

Hi @"Tim C" That wasn’t sarcasm - it was a deadly serious reductio ad absurdum. However, if you reread my post, I added a bit after looking through the T&Cs and Community Guidelines and (slightly to my dismay) there…
  • Hi @John214 The last upgrade rolling out to your box was August 21st, 2019, and these generally roll out in about six weeks, and is marked ‘Complete’. https://support.youview.com/youview-box/software-updates/latest-software-versions/ and click/ta…
  • OK then, @Tim C; what detergent would you recommend we use with our washing machine? (Sliding all at once down the slippery slope that would thus be opened up?)  :p Though on the other hand, I note that the Community Guidelines only say  ‘This comm…

No worries. I think we all feel a bit bad about having to do that, and usually supply a sly bit of help with such off-topic issues, but we mustn’t be seen welcoming it......  o:) >:)
