What make and model is the router? YouView didn’t play nice with the first Virgin router, but the later ones should be OK. What is the signal path from the router to the YouView box - direct Ethernet wired connection, or via PLAs?

A good start! Are you resetting according to these instructions? :- https://support.youview.com/youview-box/box-and-remote/reset-your-remote-control/ It may also be worth soft resetting the box - While not recording nor about to,…
  • @HCE What have you tried? Batteries, for instance?

Richard Halton used to talk about the prospect of a YouView box being able to track your small children from room to room, a rather creepy prospect that thankfully never came to fruition. But who is to say that the magic eye isn’t …
  • @tinaw60 Alas, you are on the YouView Community, and I for one, have never come across an Arqiva hybrid test channel here 😥 But I found this link:- https://www.arqiva.com/overviews/tv/hybrid-stream/ which doesn’t get us much further forward, bu…
  • The BT channels and services will come over the landline only. If you have the BT TV subscription that lets you use these, then BT Overreach should jolly well come out and fix your landline - report the fault(s) and get them dealt with, maybe bring…

Not having an Alexa device? Not having the skill set up? Speaking in vain into the YouView remote? 😀
  • @DJHB1980 You are making the mistake of looking at this from the perspective of someone who would like such a box, instead of at the economics of someone, like YouView, contemplating building such a box in the hope of making a commercial profit. …

@madixon Which box have you get, and what version is the software? And the button may be there on what YouView call a Maintenance Release basis, where it doesn’t actually do anything yet, but opens a gateway to doing it in the fu…

The Up Arrow on the remote, just above the central OK button, will take you there.
  • @john155 Believe it or not, this is deliberate, and it is meant to be an improvement. The question mark is where the Help now lives. Do you think you can grow to love the new look? 💕 💓 
  • @Firefly Greetings, and welcome to the Community! Alas, there is no setting you can make to get subtitles on NowTV on YouView at the moment. And whether they are coming down the pipeline, and if so when, we haven’t been told. What I would suggest…

No, I’m wrong again 😢 Turns out The Simpsons is a special case, only ever available live on NowTV, never on catchup. So not something we can straightforwardly use to test the ‘expiry’ hypothesis, alas, though it maybe does tend t…

As the steel plates said to the welder, glad you could join us!

@pointer772001 Yes, except when using it as a HiFi. And remember after that to put it back to the optimum TV level you have established, so you don’t then switch to the TV and deafen yourselves 😀 Having set our bedroom soundbar t…
  • @Sarah @"Louise Murdoch" Why do the Players supplied by, or through, YouView on Sony TVs before 2020 say that you can’t record anything while they are playing? This makes no sense, and isn’t some overall resource limitation, as it is en…
  • @pointer772001 Greetings, and welcome to the Community! The RCA outs will not mute the YouView box, nor prevent the audio going to the TV via HDMI, with the video, as well. However, there is some processing involved in the HDMI transmission, so I …

@Ar136 If you nip back a couple of posts, and touch the little chevron (down arrow) top right on the posts with all those spurious John29 entries, you will find it says Edit, and you can chose this, go into the post, and clean it …

Unfortunately, the NowTV Search seems to be a little unreliable...... (Image) So maybe those episodes are still available ......🤔

@Art136 I am guessing that though deaf, you are not dyslexic.
  • (Quote) Even if I still had that 2015 TV, there are many models that followed that I haven’t got. But as YouView on Sony Android TV hasn’t observably moved on since then, my advice on that topic seems to be as current as ever.

@JohnWharton Up, as described by @Stevef_fr8ys, being, for the avoidance of doubt, the arrow above the OK in the centre of the remote, and you need to do this in the YouView menu, where Settings used to be on the right, but is now …

It has a list of screen resolutions, a different thing. Other than that, it does not sound as if you have read the replies above carefully enough, so please go back over them, and try the suggestions made; and if it is still no go,…
  • @confused The Freesat box needs to be connected to the mains, one or more satellite feeds, and to the TV, probably via an HDMI cable. If it is smart, it also needs to be connected to the router, by WiFi, Ethernet cable, over the mains with Powerli…
  • @Darren That does seem to be the case - no Simpsons found. So recordings are preserved past the expiry date - excellent!
  • @John Wharton @Rob P has nicely covered issue 3, where Settings has gone to live at a newly fashionable address that doesn’t seem to be on anybody’s satnav yet. Re the other two, YouView is famous for sticking with 16:9 come hell or high water, wi…
  • @Darren Do you mean you can still watch the two recordings you made, or that you can still watch those two episodes on NowTV Entertainment? Either way, the key issue is whether you can still watch those two episodes on NowTV Entertainment or not;…

@davidhepworth That’s why all the electrical stuff in my lounge, apart for the PLA, are on a surge protected extension socket. There’a a little light on the Ethernet In on the YouView box; can you see it flickering? If it is solid…
  • @Griffin This is what happens when you spill beer on a YouView remote. Not that you necessarily have, but when they get sticky inside for some reason, they do what you describe. I had one apart, to get at the contacts, and there’s a membrane insi…
