I have had a Plus box since Feb 2015.
Generally it works fine.
The software has updated itself several times over that period, but since the last update a number of months ago, it has exhibited serious lag with the remote. I have put up with it for some time but now it is extremely irritating. It is not an issue with batteries in the remote or the remote itself.
My box is varient 001, is there a later version?
Simply changing channel is a pain. Pressing, for example 1 for BBC1, nothing appears to happen for a few seconds, not even the number 1 appears in the bottom left hand corner of the screen. So, instinct tells you to press 1 again - but then a few seconds later, 11 appears and Channel 11 is displayed, so you start the process again. The problem compounds if you intentionally want a channel with 2 or 3 digits. So annoying. The same delay occurs on the Guide and Youview menus etc. The Record button is its own challenge!
I have removed power and reset numerous times and once poweref on again it
responds quickly (as it should) but over the next hour or so it starts to slow down again.
I suspect the processor is just not up to the job with the the latest software.
Is there a newer version of the box that I can have?
Thanks in advance.
Try a Youview Maintenance Reset (Option 4: Keep Recordings).
Please note any future scheduled recordings will be lost and will have to be rescheduled.
Set the box back up and see if the performance improves.
I have been having the same problem for over a year now. I have tried powering down the Youview box for a few seconds & then powered it back up. That rectifies the problem for a few days, then the response gets slower & slower until it is un-usable. I have also tried the maintenance reset a few times but that still only cures it for a few days. Is there anything else I can try or do I need to get a new box?
