Ah - not Covideorecording them then......

You mean you still watch live TV?
  • I took my old curvy remote apart as described by @"John L" when the forward skip button failed. but alas, even with it stripped right down, it was a mechanical switch on the circuit board that wasn’t working, and there was nothing to be do…

That’s what we paid for T1000s when they came out in 2012, and we thought they were market killers too, then.
  • (Quote) @Jeffuk1 Tech specs should be read like a love letter (©️Ketty Lester) Thanks to the Humax AURA app, many features of AURA can be accessed on a mobile device, such as streaming recordings around the home or downloading shows to watch late…
  • @deedee36 @kodikid I don’t know if anyone has this technology at the moment, though I can make our Google Home devices do it with audio, just by telling one of them to continue on a Group of devices, e.g. Downstairs for Lounge and Kitchen, or UpDo…
  • @djjeckel Make sure your aerial cable is running as far as possible in free air, and certainly away from any HDMI cable(s) that might be transmitting interference into it. If this alleviates or fixes it, look at using better shielded aerial and/o…

Pleased that the much-missed mini screen is, which YouView told us was ‘too complex’ to do in NextGen. That’s a -1 for YouView. And it’s got wifi. Another -1 for YouView. And HDR..... Let’s hope it’s not as sluggish as its predec…

It’s all those pesky greengrocer’s, trying to push their wares.

Roku is the better bet these days. NowTV have attempted to nest everything the Stick does inside the NowTV app, rather than it being just one App among others, like it used to be, and like it still is on the Roku stick. But the pro…
  • @RobertsPJ Try a Maintenance Mode reset, Option 2 or Option 4:- https://support.youview.com/youview-box/box-and-remote/using-maintenance-mode/
  • @joules @Luke Option 6.5 is a Maintenance Mode reset, Option 2; and if you get the internet back to the box, then Option 4:- https://support.youview.com/youview-box/box-and-remote/using-maintenance-mode/
  • @roachie65 My old Samsung, as above, doesn’t have an overall reset, but there is a Sound Reset, which I hope you’ve tried. I’m reminded of the fix Samsung gave me for a recalcitrant NowTV app; switch the box off, disconnect it from the mains, hol…

Do you have another TV you can try the YouView box on, either in your house, or at a friend’s, or family member’s, house? It would be interesting to see if the YouView box works there, or has been incapacitated by contact with the …
  • @roachie65 Very odd indeed. Have you tried switching the sound on the YouView box to Stereo rather than Surround, setting the volume control on the YouView remote to maximum, and ensuring that the Mute button on the remote is Off? And just to be…

Greetings @patlight and welcome to the Community! I presume there’s a YouView box, or a Sony Android TV with YouView, involved here? If so, can you please say which model box or TV you have?
  • @roachie65 We’ll need some specifics to help with this:- Which box model(s) do you have, and have had? What make and model of TV? Which connection are you making? HDMI? Has the setup ever worked? The common factor here seems to be the TV, if yo…
  • @countryman2 This is a known issue, and it is being addressed. In the meantime, if you understandably don’t want to cancel one of the recordings, you have to leave the box to get on with it, and watch something on another device, such as your TV,…

@Paul Yes I read your posts; but do you read my replies?  My job is in tech support; keeping £multi-million systems running for my client. And YouView is just a hobby; the expertise I have gained over the years, and my contribution…

@PaulJ If you think there is a fault in the software from the last update, then you either need to find many more reports of it (and all of them since the update, not going back before anybody had it) or explain why there might no…
  • Apropos of HD and UHD, here’s the same screenshot, as close as I could get it, in three resolutions:- HD - BBC iPlayer on my Samsung JS9000, their 2015 flagship, upscaled to 4K:, 3 pixels in every 4 interpolated- (Image) UHD - the BBC iPlayer on…
  • @kodikid Much as I would like to block you, or ignore you when I disagree, we really can’t have you spreading fake news on the Community unchallenged.  So:- Youview is no longer available to buy retail. Retail was only ever a tiny fraction of the…

I have fast.com in my browser. A single tap tells me the speed in my location (it falls off room by room as I move away from the router, and can vary even within that room). (Image)

@PaulJ    Please don’t put words in my mouth. I’m saying that these are electrical equipment; any piece of electrical equipment carries with it the possibility of failure. Whats important is not the absolute fact of failure, but t…

Hi John L I can try this, but where do I see what YouTube is sending? With your new TV, what speeds are you getting from your ISP to it, WiFi or Ethernet, depending on how it is connected? A 4K TV is always going to show a 4K pic…

@NB49 Your box is not a Humax 😛 Glad you got it going again, anyway.

@Maxwell Try leaving a message with JVC support and seeing if that is more fruitful.
  • @NB49 Anything reported in Feb/March with recording on TalkTalk boxes would have been rather more subtle than total failure to record. If this was your issue in June, and it has recurred, then I fear it is telling you your box has failed; a Facto…
