Hi @Nuttynat123


I've drawn this topic to the attention of the TalkTalk Community support team of OCE's and they'll respond to you right here to help you.


You'll need to ensure your Community Profile Personal Information (Click here) includes your landline phone number and an alternate number (mobile recommended). Add, then scroll down and save changes. The Community support OCE's will then be able to link this topic to your TalkTalk service account.


In the meantime a few questions:

  • Are you a TV subscriber? i.e. you subscribe to a TV Boost like the Starter Boost or Entertainment Boost?
  • Is the TV Box connected to the router with an Ethernet cable?  It's important it is connected to the Router and the Broadband service in order to receive software updates.
  • Have you tried to Update Software? - Youview Menu > Settings > Software Information
  • Is it a TV Box that records complete programmes?
  • If so, do you have any recordings that you wish to keep?

Hi Nuttynat123


In addition to the above questions, have you also ever tried a Youview Maintenance Reset (Option 4: Keep Recordings).

Please note any future scheduled recordings will be lost and will have to be rescheduled.


And did this improve the performance of the box.
