Hi @Sally45

You have done the first thing I would have suggested.


2nd thing is to 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.

I've been getting this too the past 2 days. Also had the buffering last night that's mentioned on another thread, though perhaps unrelated of course.

Hi @EugeneFraxby


Could you please start your own thread for support as each problem is individual and needs investigating separately.

Could you please also ensure that your community profile includes your PHONE NUMBER as OCE's will need this to tie up your screen name to your account. (click on your avatar to view the information > Settings > Launch Profile Wizard,put your phone number in box, then scroll to the bottom of page and click save)

If this has helped and solved your problem, please mark it as Best Answer so that OCE's or others do not spend time looking for alternatives.

I did the power off restart but left it off a bit longer this time, and mine is back to normal. I had done the power off a couple of times yesterday but there was also a software update early hours of Tue morning I think, so perhaps things just got a bit out of sync.
