Silly question time, but is your box attached to the router, either directly or by power line adaptors?


If so, then the box is on and you push the Menu button, for a it say TalkTalk?


If Yes to both then you should see the channels on the guide irrespective of whether you have the boosts or not. Try a return from the settings menu to see if it pulls them through.


If that does not work, then try a soft reset. To do this hold the power button on the front for around 10 seconds and the box should restart. Alternatively, you can turn off from the back and power back on.

If this doesn’t work then try a YouView Maintenance Reset (

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.
