My YouView box won't turn & can't get past the "Loading" stage

A few days ago it stopped recording and has become very slow even though the hard drive is less than 50% full.  Now the box won't get past the "Loading" stage of startup and turn on.

Have you tried a YouView Maintenance Reset (https://community.talktalk.co.uk/t5/Articles/How-to-find-maintenance-mode/ta-p/1429347)?

Try the Factory Reset keep recording option.

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

Hope it works but if not then please let us know and I’ll flag for further assistance.
