  • Checked the site, using due safeguards. The contact number is an Aussie mobile, and the site has the same shaky grasp of plurals, capitals, and the English language generally, as the posting above. And this is where the image of ‘arnejohnson’ has been stolen from:-…

@meyou2 We (or at least those investigating this) need more information on YouView’s tuner selection algorithm. Or Huawei’s, if this is down in the firmware, though I don’t think it will be. But from that result, either there’s a problem with a tuner already on D3&4 picking up a D3&4 programme (which is not what we…
  • @meyou2 Hypothesis; while the first D3&4 recording fails for you, then as noted above, the box knows something is happening as the required P/F comes by on the non-D3&4 mux, enough to know it should be making a recording, and of what, but it somehow fails to latch onto it. However, this is still enough to flip a tuner onto…
  • @meyou2 My T2100 recorded the Channel 4 News successfully and completely. Beforehand, at about 3:30, I had set Ch4, on 4, to series record the News. I had then set BBC1 to record the second YM, and a Google Home alert for 4:15, midway though. On getting the alert, I changed channel on the box to 41. I then put it in…
  • 
@meyou Hmm, I’m wondering about the forcing. I reckon to get the tuners how you describe, I need, after scheduling Ch4 SD News for series record, to be recording Young Masterchef on BBC 1, and while it’s recording, select Legend to watch, and then leave the box like that (switched on, or in standby, or doesn’t it…
  • 
@meyou2 Thanks for the very clear recipe. I can try this Sunday, maybe Monday, on a Humax T2100 and a T4000.
  • @meyou2 Bearing in mind that this is reported as a Huawei box issue, but not a Humax one, then if this is indeed the case, the flags can’t be entirely bogus. So something that doesn’t faze Humax boxes, but fazes Huawei ones; maybe something like the P/F signal going past too quickly for the Huawei firmware, but Humaxes…
  • 
@meyou2 Interesting… IIRC, there’s one mechanism to let each tuner on your box have the Present/Following indicator (the flag that tells the box when one programme is stopping and another starting) for the channel it is tuned to, and another that provides all the Present/Following indicators, for all channels, so if…

If it was as simple as that, then we should get reports of players failing to go into the adverts. I have never seen a single one of those. Funny, that 😛
  • @Cherie I strongly endorse what @Stevef_fr8ys says above, not least because you sticking to one thread means all the information about your problem is in one place, and we don’t have to keep jumping about to find what you have already described. Above, you have reported that you recorded two unspecified C5 programmes which…
  • 
@Stevef_fr8ys While these are usually good things to try, i think that in the particular circumstances in which @meyou2 is helping YouView to tease out some acknowledged issues with D3&4 on Huawei boxes, I would not do either, unless specifically requested to by @"Louise Murdoch"
  • 
@"John L" None of our ‘simplistic’ theories would explain why Huawei boxes are affected by whatever it is, though, and Humax boxes aren’t. It all points to some irregularity with the transmitted metadata on D3&4 that upsets the Huawei firmware, but doesn’t upset the Humax firmware; and we know from past issues that…
  • @"John L" Yes, I have seen the issue you describe. But if the BBC have simply changed the Series CRID, then the ‘failed to record’ is just something that you notice, not anything that the box reports to you, because the box hasn’t seen anything wrong, just a programme going by and being ignored, like thousands of others,…
  • @quinee6 Just to add that I presume you looked to see if you could find and re-download the STV Player? If it’s not in the Google/Android TV Play Store, try looking under Sony Select for it.
  • @Floatydave Greetings, and welcome to the Community! Signal Quality or Signal Strength? These are different measures. Can you please reply with both, one pair taken when tuned to Really, and another pair taken when tuned to a channel you have no problems with? Signal Strength of 65% might be OK, but if that is really…
  • @mnx @Stevef_fr8ys As it says BT TV, I imagine that this issue is indeed (tenuously) related to YouView 📺 Knowing how LG magic remotes think, I suspect that if you use it to open the BT TV device, or even just that input, it will breathe a sigh of relief, will know its work is done, and not show the message again 😛
  • @lylamol1 Greetings, and welcome to the Community! To get All4 on a Sony Android TV 2015-2020, you need to be on the ‘YouView side’ of the TV, and to have tuned Channel 4 in via a TV aerial. (Though having done that, you don’t need the aerial again unless you have to reset the TV). From 2020 things changed, and you only…
  • @quinee6 Cant help with the lost stv player, though I bet something about itvX is breaking it. But if you can’t watch your soaps because they were on stv, and itvX won’t let you have itv 1 where they also are, then set your postcode to EC in the itvX settings, and that should give you itv 1, for the time being, at least.
  • 
@jshortman Just in My TV/Recordings, or on the whole line RECORDINGS & WATCH LIST? And you still have them on, say, LIVE TV, and TV SHOWS? Try touching the On/Standby button on the box for just over 8 seconds, until it soft reboots, and see if this clears the issue. Come back for more advice if not.
  • @Cherie You have asked this before:- https://community.youview.com/youview/discussion/7607084/itv-hub if you feel the issue was not exhausted there, it would be more courteous, and possibly more helpful to you, to please continue that thread, rather than starting a new thread for exactly the same thing? I would also refer…

@Luke Good thought, but I can’t see where a PC would be needed. Can you explain for me? https://images-eu.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/71AKi807dUS.pdf (Client Mode, I think).
  • @Macca9016 Greetings, and welcome to the Community! Option 1: Find a friend or family member who does have internet, go round there, and connect through that. Once past the setup stage, you can go back to using it without internet where you live. Option 2: Get a nanorouter, which will effectively put any Ethernet-only…
  • @cybernetuk Greetings, and welcome to the Community! I guess you have the Pro box, from BT? Shame we don’t still have the YouView app. Unlike the Schedule on the box - which as you say shows only the next Love Island and not any subsequent editions, presenting Series as if you had only set for the one next episode - the…

Note that the TV Licence requirement covers watching live channels. You don’t need a licence just to possess equipment, apps, or whatever capable of displaying live channels, as long as you don’t actually do it. The same is true if you possess equipment capable of displaying the BBC iPlayer but don’t watch it; however…
  • 
@annabria The Community is dripping with comments about itvX, even including subtitles issues - just not in this particular thread. Go to Home, above top left, and you will see them.
  • 
@quinee6 Greetings, and welcome to the Community! No catchup at all, or just not on STV? What’s the model number of your TV? Are you based in Scotland? Have you suddenly got the itvX app where you didn’t have any itv app before, or maybe just the itv Hub? Can you reload the STV app from the Google TV Play Store, or…
  • 
@IanB Have you turned on HDMI Frame Rate Matching in the YouView Picture/Resolution Settings page?
  • 
@redchiz Only the BBC seems to have live channels on my YouView box, out of the ‘big four’ and UKTV Play. The same is true of our LG GX TV, except that My 5 has live channels, and it doesn’t have All 4 at all. ItvX is present, but no live channels there. All five of these apps have live channels on the attached Roku…
  • @Lilla Greetings, and welcome to the Community! Click once and wait. It’s tempting, if you think the click hasn’t apparently registered, to click again; but the YouView software notes both clicks, and when it has eventually actioned the first one, it goes on to action the second one, which deletes the next entry along, as…

@jimb If the BBC will let them have it 😛 I quite like the wellness option just above itv1, though.
