I have hidden a number of channels over time using my Youview box. I can see an option to "restore hidden channels", but I don't want to restore ALL of them en masse. Is it possible to view the list of hidden channels so that I can maybe decide to restore one or two channels individually?
you should be able to access the guide, select the option to hide channels, enter your pin, and then select the channels to you wish to un hide.

I am sure users often want to 'unhide' a previously hidden channel eg after accidentally hiding a channel or on learning that a channel's content has become more interesting. The Restore Channels option requires laboriously 'rehiding' many channels.
I have [ commented ] below on your reply of 03-09-2014 to beefman22:
"you should be able to access the guide, select the option to hide channels [actually Edit Channels]], enter your pin [ OK ], and then select the channels [ PREVIOUSLY HIDDEN CHANNELS CANNOT BE VIEWED ] you wish to un hide."
Please, has this matter progressed since your reply of 05-09-2014, saying you were passing the comment on?
Unfoprtunately not, this is a feature of the YouView interface generally and not something TalkTalk control directly. There is a workaround though, as posted on the YouView Community website: https://community.youview.com/youview/topics/how-to-unhide-a-single-channel
Thanks for that link which shows a useful workaround to restore a hidden channel and a consensus on a problem that obviously troubles a lot of users. Next step has to be for the provider(s) to insist on a proper solution, no matter who has to implement it - in the spirit of 'Can Do'. Yes?
Trouble is there is no search facility on the new softwear download. At the moment you can't hide any channels never mind unhide an individual channel. Just another example of talktalk incompetence I'm afraid.
If you use the search button on your remote, or highlight the magnifying glass icon at the top left of the banner when you push the y or youview button it opens the search facility.
I hope this if some help.
