  • @jjive @Darren There is no analogue TV in the UK any more, it is all digital, and YouView boxes only ever got digital anyway. And while it is true that T1000s don’t get any updates, and don’t run the newer players, working ones should still do everything they did on day 1; tune in and show TV channels with pause and…
  • @keith16 I am sure they will have read your posting above; and BT are not backward at coming forward with issues they have decided need to be laid at YouView’s door.
  • 
Maybe you have friends or family with a suitable laptop? Or:-…
  • @"Claire Twine" To prove everything is working on the Ethernet cable going into the YouView box, disconnect the cable at the box, and plug it into a laptop on which you have turned off the WiFi. If you can still reach the internet from the laptop, doublecheck you really have turned off the WiFi, and you have now isolated…
  • @countryman2 Sounds like the sort of mystery only Neville Parker could solve… The second time, did the episode continue from the minute and second that you paused the first episode at? And you are sure there is only the one episode of DIP on your YouView box, or do you have others? And it wasn’t that one was a recording…

@Anaglypta @Keith16 Tried this on my T4000 - nothing untoward heard. But I can’t quite rid myself of the suspicion that my LG GX is muting the transitions - maybe to avoid the sort of thing you are talking about - and I note that it does this on the apps on the TV also. So maybe you need a different TV? 😛
  • 
@trophytr5 Perhaps some kind soul had already lent Harmony their 5000T remote? 😛
  • @monarchjock The context here was a little unusual though - the remote being tested wasn’t the one that wasn’t working. But even a brand new remote can go wrong; I had a new Sony Trinitron set once where I put the batteries in the remote, set the TV up physically, picked the remote up to complete the setup - and dropped it…
  • Greetings @keith16 and welcome to the Community! And yes, YouView have closed their telephone support line 😢 But you still have us…. Everything happens after an update 😛 - the question is did it start immediately after the update? But this is not something anyone else has notified us of, to my knowledge. Did Humax get you…
  • 
As it apparently isn’t going to cost extra, how does that work?
  • 
Which confirms both channels are coming to Now as well, both proper Now and Now as presented by BT. it seems odd that while the world is rushing towards On Demand, Sky/Now would be launching a strictly linear channel (that word again!); but as it will be presenting content from all the other channels, I guess pretty…
  • 
@"Krister Hallergard" And that may be @jo55’s problem….. But if the box is still running, you can pull HD off the HDMI output, especially useful for the T4000s that don’t have SCART with one of these:-…
  • @trophytr5 Can’t find a P. Is this a T? But anyway, get its Humax remote, and look at the business end of it with the camera on your smartphone. Press a button or three on the remote. If you see flickering, it’s sending IR. if you don’t, it’s sending RF. We must allow for the small probability that when sending IR, it is…
  • 
@Darren Despite avoiding the tender mercies of BT TV, I’m tied into two years’ Broadband with them, so a contract with BT is unavoidable for me, in this area at least. Looking at what BT have done with Now, it’s very smart. They aren’t really interested in users dipping in and out of monthly packages, so they have…
  • @Darren I thought BT offered the same flexibility on Now - to pick up and drop packages/bundles at will? Are you saying you are tied in to Now long-term, without this option? Or are you just tied to a BT TV contract for a YouView box or boxes - in which case, with BT’s new T&Cs since what, late 2019 - aren’t they going to…
  • @whatdoyou OK. Well, you are looking at your TV’s Home Screen, not the input into which (I fervently hope) you have connected an HDMI cable leading from the YouView box. To which (I also fervently hope) you have connected the lead from a TV aerial socket to the YouView box TV aerial input, and an Ethernet cable coming from…
  • 
Yes, when I assume, I make an a s s of u and me 😢 [Memo to YouView: if it was good enough for Jesus to ride into Jerusalem on, then it should be good enough not to be Bowdlerised here] So that is the menu of a TV. But is it the menu of a Sony Android TV you are trying to tune YouView on, or a TV you have a YouView box…
  • @whatdoyou Greetings, and welcome to the Community! Settings has moved to the top right of the Home Screen, so you have to Arrow Up on the remote when you are on this screen, in order to reach it, avoiding Help, and Search, and any other gubbins up there, to reach it. Just another rock that YouView have thrown in the path…
  • @robotman Oh dear. How have we got from here:- https://community.youview.com/youview/discussion/comment/19009011/#Comment_19009011to here? 😢 (And the person I thought you were has interacted with me, so maybe you aren’t him).
  • @jo55 Greetings, and welcome to the Community! Sorry to hear of your issue here. You can’t rescue HD (recorded from BBC1 HD on 101 or one of the other channels upwards to 114, or from 204 CBBC HD or 205 CBeebies HD), as HD is encrypted and can only be read on your particular YouView box. But you can rescue SD (e.g.…
  • 
@robotman Worried???
  • @kodikid I’m sad to see you endorsing the abuse above. I have a fair idea who the poster is, and if so his opinion of me should not be valued here. And perhaps not anywhere.
  • @andyjkaplan Greetings, and welcome to the Community! Look under ‘Live & Catch-up TV’. Like BT, Sony don’t seem to want the Y-word to be visible anywhere 😢
  • @Stevef_fr8ys Nice comeback to @robotman. And I would certainly agree that when replying to a specific poster, especially a new one, it is wise to judge their level of expertise from their posting, and try to pitch our responses accordingly, tempering our wind to the shorn lamb, and explaining things that we would not…
  • Hi @zafar and welcome to the Community! YouView don’t provide the, or any, Now app on these Sony TVs. The Now app on these TVs is the regular Android one. What leads you to want this app to be provided by YouView? The only thing I can think of is if you already have a YouView box, and a Now subscription via BT TV, and are…
  • 
@Visionman Thing is, not everything we see evidence of comes to fruition, and even if it does, timescales can vary wildly. Do I believe that TalkTalk are, or were, working on a new YouView box? Yes, because I have seen evidence of this. Do I believe that TalkTalk may still launch a new YouView box? Yes. Do I believe…
  • 
@Visionman But as the very quote you are commenting on reveals, the Admin team are using this forum as a conduit for talking to us! It would seem churlish if we never responded in kind 🤐
  • 
@Stevef_fr8ys If you hark right back to your early days, I think you will find that a cord cutter was the first person you encountered when you came out of the womb ✂️🪡😷
  • 
@kodikid Unless you live in a Freeview Lite area. But with the qualification ‘A good Freeview or Freesat PVR and a Roku box (with a bunch of subscriptions) ticks every box’ I’m with you there.
