Hi. I am trying to set up talktalk tv with the WiFi extender pack but having no succes.  I have followed all instructions re. Connecting my network connector to the router in another room and  connecting the WiFI extender to the talktalk box. All buttons on both devices are green suggesting all ok. The blue button  on the front of the tv box is also on.However, when I switched on the tv it said it was warming up then switched to the start up screen. The tv screen itself is now stuck on the let’s get started  screen. I have tried several times to restart but it won’t go any further than the startup screen message. Really looking for some advise as I’ve been paying for the tv package for 4 months now and not had it working. Any help much appreciated. Thanks.Jacqueline.

Hi @Jacqueline6 

 

Have you tried a maintenance reset as follows :

 

Maintenance Reset Option 2 (Keep Recordings)

 

Turn the box off, then unplug the power lead for about 10 minutes.

Re-plug in power  lead.

  1. Ensure the YouView Box is switched off and is currently connected to the router (the YouView Box will require an internet connection).
  2. Power on YouView using button at the back of the YouView Box.
  3. Start YouView using the power button on the YouView Box front panel and then quickly press and hold both the + and – buttons on the front panel. If you haven’t pressed the buttons together by the time 'YouView Waking Up' is displayed, or you see the 'YouView please wait...' message then try again.
  4. Let go of the + and – buttons once the 'Huawei – Maintenance Mode menu' is displayed.
  5. The + and – buttons on the front panel will navigate the menu. Keep pressing the – button until 2  “factory reset keep recordings” option is highlighted.  If you go past the option, simply press the + button to navigate back to the option.
  6. Press the power button on the YouView Box front panel to select the option. This will bring up some information and ask 'Do you want to proceed?'. Press the power button again to confirm.
  7. The YouView Box will now show a progress bar as it downloads software from the internet and installs on the YouView Box. This may take several minutes. Once complete, the YouView Box will restart.
  8. Once the YouView Box restarts, the YouView Box will show the initial setup wizard. You will need to run through the setup wizard including tuning the channels.

You will then need to reset your personal settings (such as parental controls / ANTENNA OUT / Surround Sound etc.) and also probably reset your scheduled recordings (It might be worth taking a note of future recordings before doing this so you don’t miss any).

It is also a good idea to restart your router once you have done this.

 

If you do NOT have any recordings that you want to keep :

Blue YV /Menu button on the remote  >  Settings  >  Factory reset. This option will re-format the hard drive and reinstall the system on your box and you will lose all recordings.

Again It is also a good idea to restart your router once you have done this.
