I am having the same problems with my box as have been reported elsewhere.
At various times the system hangs, loses contact with the remote control, fails to record, fails to play back recordings etc etc. Resetting helps but the improvements don't last.
I have tried all the resets mentioned in the prevcious posts but to no avail.

Otherwise, TalkTalk will not be able to tie up your forum username to your broadband account. Only you & TalkTalk have visibility of your details.
Can you try the full factory reset from the youview menu and set the box back up and see if performance improves.
This will wipe the hard drive and set this back up so ny current recordings will be lost but this is the last reset to try.
