I assume you ordered the powerline adapters because your router is a long way from your TV? ours is too, but we just use a longer HDMI cable which cost us £10 off ebay for 10 meters! works perfectly.
You will be able to use the Youview box without the adapters, they are just needed to provide the internet connectivity for the on demand players. It won't stop the freeview channels from working.

For what it's worth, i just got my Youview box last week & connected it to the router using powerline adaptors. They work perfectly well & no messing with cables as, in my case, the router is upstairs.
These are what i bought.
