It’s now 2 weeks since I changed to TalkTalk and I still haven’t managed to get my tv box working. It starts set up but gets as far as setting up tv services and gets stuck. Does anyone have any ideas what I can do.

Hi

 

Can you check the phone number in your Community Profile

 

It looks to have 1 to many digits.

 

Thanks

Hi

 

Is the youview box direct to the router or via powerline adapters ?

 

Are you able to test with a direct connection to the router ?

 

Thanks

Tried to connect via power line adapters. I can’t connect direct to the router. The powerline adapters are working as I have my old bt youview box working through them.

Hi

 

Is it not possible to take the TV box to the router just for the setup, possibly with a portable TV etc, and then when set up replace in the original location.

 

Thanks

Just tried to set up tv box connected directly to the router. I’m still getting the same problem with set up sticking on step 3 setting up tv services.

Hi

 

I've emailed our TV tech teams to have a look at this.

Hi 

 

Can you try a Youview Maintenance Reset

 

When the box has been fully reset try the set up again and see if it sticks at option 3.

 

Thanks
