@Tim C Thank you; I stand corrected, and have modified my posting above accordingly. Apologies to all. The internet service I have at present will not allow me to follow your link, as it is designed to block streaming services, and seems to be taking a rather broad-brush approach to this, but I should be able to look…
  • @sharonshropshire There’s My5 and there’s All4, but no My4, alas, so which one is it? [Edited out as per @"Tim C"’s correction, for which I am indebted] There’s My5 and there’s All4, but My4 is a subset of All4; so, can you access All4, but not My4 within it, or can you not access All4 at all? If you are having trouble…
  • @jalston Point the remote at the TV, and hold your finger on the On/Standby button of the remote for just over 5 seconds until the TV soft reboots. See if this fixes it. Otherwise we will need to know what model the TV is in order to figure out what model year it is, and exactly what cache where you will need to clear. Or,…
  • @nooney Are you on the Bilsdale transmitter, the one that had the fire? Has your TV aerial, if external, blown down, or been rotated? Do you have a masthead amplifier with an external power supply feeding it up one of the aerial cables? Has this been switched off or disconnected (which usually happens when no-one can see…
  • @Larry66 I set up a YouView box in Spain, on a terrestrial TV aerial there. It successfully pulled in a large number of Spanish TV channels, including HD ones. UK ones were miles out of range, as they are in all but a few areas in France very near the coast adjoining the English Channel. Spain does not have the DVB-T2 that…

@Adam https://community.youview.com/youview/discussion/7606703/on-demand-players-disappeared#latest Not sure if it will help, though 😢

Carl Orff has expressed his longing for his favourite fish 🐬🦈🐋🐟😛 (Let the treasure hunt begin).

When it’s spring again, I’ll bring again Tuners from Amsterdam….

@Visionman Go to the Search the Community window at the top of the page. Type ‘glass’ into it. In fairness, though, it’s not always quite that easy.
  • 
Greetings @Speedmaster865, and welcome to the Community! You would need to ask PlusNet that question, with particular reference to the T&Cs at the time you took the box, and whether you have completed a minimum contract term yet, or not. In particular, look for a ‘Non-Return fee’ such as BT use, whereby if you give up…

@kodikid As far as I know, you do have to subscribe to BT broadband to get BT TV. Can you quote me anything to the contrary? And there was early talk of the Pro boxes only working with the BT Hub 3, certainly for WiFi, though this does not seem to be the case. But certainly, BT used to have the BT Vision boxes locked…
  • 
@Visionman Yes, here:- https://community.youview.com/youview/discussion/comment/16894083/#Comment_16894083 But the only citations for glass to glass (lower case) there that I can see, even looking forward ten days from the posting, are the one that I gave and the one that @scott gave - nothing from you - and there is…

@Visionman True alas. I once had breakfast with that nice Pam Ayres, but it didn’t rub off. Though I did think “I’m the Drive-By Poster” had at least a little merit….. 😢
  • 
Boom boom!
  • 
@Visionman Yes people do find it annoying, which is why I normally keep it to myself. And even philosophers have been known to have words desert them, and raise implements:- https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/12074.Wittgenstein_s_Poker

@jimb Good point, and as written, you are right. But mentally, I always add a virtual “I think” to @Visionman’s ex cathedra pronouncements, abd that is where I fell into error here 😛

It’s these people I feel sorry for….. https://skyglass.co.uk/

@redchiz Lots. It’s available on a 2 or 4 year interest-free instalment purchase basis. When you want to watch a movie, you see all the movies available from all the apps at once, and you just pick the one you want to watch, and it starts the relevant player and shows it to you. There are little boxes (pucks) you can…
  • 
@jimb It looks like it’s not as slim as it could be, and at least some of this is the small speakers arrayed around its edges. So the height aspect of Atmos in these TVs could perfectly well be as good as any soundbar, or even any full 7.1 system, that uses upward firing speakers, rather than actual ceiling speakers,…
  • 
@Visionman I disagree with you on this. But then I thought retail YouView was going to succeed, so what do I know? 😛 However, BT captured the market, on a mixture of content/sports provision, which people were prepared to pay for, and, very possibly, buying the box on an instalment plan, instead of what was originally…
  • 
Hi @jimb It’s not something I usually point out, but philosophers distinguish between ‘statements the speaker makes about the world’ and ‘statements the speaker makes about themself’. In the case above, the correctness lies in “I’m not aware” (assuming the statement is made in good faith) and not in any consideration…
  • 
@Visionman Then I guess you never saw the answer to this question, which you asked above 😢 :- https://community.youview.com/youview/discussion/comment/19011142/#Comment_19011142
  • Watch the video:- https://www.sky.com/sky-events?irct=homepage-glass-events I’m sure it’s been watched a few times already at YouView Towers. It looks like you can’t FF/REW on it, but actually there’s a scrubbing bar you can use.
  • @SamH Anyone who is aware of any such will be under a strict NDA, and thus unable to answer here, or indeed anywhere 😢
  • 
@Jeffuk1 I can’t see any connection between this query and the thread above it, so this would have been better as a new thread, which hopefully @Sarah or @"Louise Murdoch" can turn it into. A few questions, though:- What is ‘this’? The tiny TV in your avatar, or something else? What is a smartplug? Do you mean a PLA…
  • 
@jonesh Indeed; but I recall that in the early days of digital, I had to toss the Nokia digibox we were using with our still-analogue TV in favour of a Sagem, as some expansion of the system left the early boxes like the Nokia unable to cope, and it stopped working. It was something like that I was thinking of, not…
  • 
Thanks @redchiz, duly contacted, with particular reference to our All4+ paid subscription. Though I still think YouView may wield a bigger stick than me. Channel Four are still pleading RedBee, but why single out one of their most popular programmes to drop from On Demand? Especially when they still have the 6am…
  • @tc99 Why indeed? https://community.youview.com/youview/discussion/7606725/no-countdown-on-catchup-since-thursday#latest and now today as well 😢 @Sarah, the chorus of discontent will only go on increasing until dis content is restored!
  • 
@Stevef_fr8ys @jonesh More to the point, it’s not as if being in support means that anyone would fix it if it went wrong. But apropos of @redchiz’ comments about maintenance releases on newer boxes keeping them abreast of current developments, isn’t it odd that T1000s, which don’t get these releases, don’t seem to be…
