Setting your TV Box as your primary box

No ratings

You can easily set up your TV box as your primary box within More TV on your box. 


You may find that your access has been restricted when viewing channels or video-on-demand. You may see error code TTG-238/ 239 appear on your TV screen.  Content from other providers (such as iPlayer and Netflix) can be used as normal. However, using both set-top boxes at the same time could cause problems with picture quality, buffering and errors.
