Step 1 of 4

I've just installed an update on one of my boxes whilst watching the other and also had a recording on the other box

 

I lost the TV signal whilst the box updated and rebooted, and not for the first time. This will mean a gap in the recording and was also annoying to miss a portion  of the programme I was watching. 

 

Why does RF loop through have to be activated and why is it deactivated during reboots?

 

I suggest it should just pass the signal through at all times.

@fr8ys Thanks for the suggestion. I've asked the question and will let you know once I have more info 🙂

YouView advice for rebooting is to do it when nothing is recording, or about to record, for that very reason. The RF passthrough requires a power supply, hence the drop when the box switches itself off, it is not a dumb connection sadly.
