youveiw box freezing,not recording and more.

First Timer

For the last week my box has had so many problems, it freezes and the only way to carry on watching is to turn it on and off at the back. It either doesnt record at all or only partially records, its deleted all my recordings yet says there is 0% available. Some days it wont let me watch my boost chanells saying im not subscribed. I eventually gave up and did a full factory reset, this hasnt helped in the slightest if anything its got worse. If i need to pause it, it either freezes or stops pausing after a few mins and i either have to turn it on and off again or it wont let me rewind back to where i was anyway. Ive had this box since i first joined must be coning on to 7 years i reckon. Thanks in advance for any suggestions

A bite of info of Forum:
The forum is not real-time 24/7 support, so depending on how busy they are & how many are working at any one time, this can take 24 - 48 hrs (excluding weekends & limited cover on Bank Holidays). Alternatively, you can call the call centre or use online chat. The posts are responded to in time/date order, oldest first. So the fewer entries you make on your thread now, the sooner they will pick it up.

To save yourself time, please make sure that your community profile includes your first & last names, broadband phone number & if possible an alternative contact number.
