Hi 

 

@Mmatt , @Pez30 , @Bferen , @Frankafrank , @Rusty_2 , @Glendevonfrank , @Glenda5 , @Cathcol , @SCBierton13 , @Suezz , @Chevy1 

 

Can you all please confirm if you have tried the following :

 

removing the aerial  = Y/N

remove the ethernet = Y/N

reboot = Y/N

retune = Y/N

 

Also have you done a factory reset Y/N

 

If you can also let me know the number of channels you have after a reune, and if you notice this issue affecting a specific channel, or what channel you are watching when you notice this happening.

 

Please reply just in this thread so I can collate all answers for our Youview contacts.  I'm in direct contact with them currently so can relay info across quickly.

 

I'll also pin this thread at the top for now so it's easy for you all to find.

 

Thanks  
Karl.

Hi

I have done all of the above and it’s still the same it’s so frustrating because I have just renewed my contract for Two years and this happens.

Not sure if I can cancel it now but you have not fulfilled the contract as I have no youview now.

Hi Karl

Can you still record programmes on this new box-the TV hub or not?

Thanks

Hi All,

 

Just as an alternative suggestion while I'm here, the Legacy Youview Boxes are getting on a bit now, bit like myself.   These models are about 12 years old, and when the current issue is resolved, there are no guarantees that there will be more issues down the line, as these boxes are ageing, like any technology, they will become more problematic as time goes by.

 

The newer TV box we supply, the TV HUB is android based and can be updated, does have access to more apps including things like YouTube and Pluto TV as well as having Google assistant, and is unnafected by any of these issues we are seeing with the older YouView boxes.

 

I would encourage any one here to consider taking one of the new TV HUB's as that will be better going forward.

 

Regards,

Karl.

Hi @Annie9896 

 

Thank you, I'll update my spreadsheet here.

 

I've been on calls with YouView today, and they are on calls with other entities looking at broadcast channels and data directly from the source etc, so there is a flurry of activity this side, even if it looks quiet here 🙂

 

I will keep all updated as info comes in, but I'm not here over the weekend.

 

Karl.

Hi

 

Thanks for testing, If you can, Take the aerial out and change to BBC1 - it won't come on, but thats expected 🙂

 

Plug aerial in, then change to channel 101, and just try the channels above 101, 102, 103 etc and see if they all work and the guide works better when just using the channels above 100.

 

Thanks  

Karl.

Did not come on without aerial in.   Tried with aerial initially not responding then started working fine using guide and changing channels.  Started lagging again/not responding waited 30 seconds started responding again but now stuck on guide with no info for channels so stopped responding again.  Will have to try again later

Hi @Annie9896   And everyone else 🙂

 

We are looking into this currently, and I should have more info around noon today.

 

One thing to test, take out the aerial, then select BBC1 (channel 1) on the box/remote.

 

When the box changes to channel 1, plug the aerial back in and see if the small EPG (Guide) shows ok at the bottom of the screen.

 

Try changing to 101 (BBC HD) and see if that is responsive.

 

Then try Channel 236 - GBNews and channel 233 Sky News and see if they are showing ok and are responsive and that the EPG is loading and showing ok.

 

Thanks  

Karl.

My TV GUIDE works initially AFTER the Factory reset then when u come out of it but then go back into it, it appears slowly but with NO data next to the channels. Have retuned etc  but to no avail.

Remote working very slowly. 
As a pensioner I rely on my TV recording facility so any help I can get would be appreciated. Thank you.

Hi @Pez30 

 

YouView have asked, can you try a maintenance reset as follows :

 

TalkTalk TV  & Plus Box

  1. Turn the power on using the button at the back of the box
  2. Press the power button on the front of the box
  3. Very quickly, press and hold the + and - buttons on the front of the box together for 10-15 seconds
  4. You should see the start screen on your TV, followed by the Maintenance Mode screen
  5. Select Factory Reset.

When the box is back up and running, just try switching between channels BBC1 & BBC2 then try the Guide and see if this is unresponsive for those channels or just in general.

 

Thanks  

Karl.

Morning All,

 

Please can I ask you to confirm the number of channels you have after a retune.

 

You can see this in the settings.

 

Also, do you notice if this only happens if you try to select a specific channel, or what channel you are on when you see this happening.

 

Thank You,

 

Karl.

Hi @RMurray ,

 

What Model TV Box do you have ? Also, under the box is a serial number, can you provide this please.

 

I cannot see any service discovery logs here, so not seeing any communicatin from your TV Box to our servers etc.

Hi All,

 

Thanks for adding your info to this thread. I've read all posts and collated all info in one place to relay to youview as they test.  They are replicating the issues on TV Boxes at their side and looking at all the logs to narrow down the root cause.  I'll keep you all updated here with their progress.
