I am switching my phone provider to BT and the deal includes

Resolved Question:

I am switching my phone provider to BT and the deal includes BT TV with a YouView box. I have just got used to the Panasonic DMR-PWT635 recorder/player with my Sony 32EX503 tv. Will it work with BT TV? What are the practicalities? Can I switch between the remotes for my Panasonic and the YouView remote? Or does one become the default one? I've just got used to the panasonic remote and would like to use just that one if possible? Two other issues are:why is there no mute button for sound on the remote? (I think) and I keep getting a overlay message on my tv when I switch on saying it has found new channels despite installing them several times! It is a pain - when I press exit- it even comes back again sometimes ( it does go when i switch to another mode but is always there when i start up!!!

I'll wait a BIT longer. However I've found out for free the answers re BT TV although a supplementary question is - is there any problem or disadvantage with using power line adaptors to connect up the YouView box to the telephone line rather than a hard wire?
I await my answers to my questions on the recorder/player.

Hard wire is always the best solution vs power line adapters (aka Home Plugs). Adapters can be affected by noise on the electrical line caused by equipment in your home Also adapters don't work if plugged into a surge suppressing power strip. Adapters should be on the same ring circuit as the equipment that it is linking to. The age of the electrical wiring in your home can also affect the adapter's performance.There have been reports of adapters causing interference and affecting DAB radio​If the signal has to cross through your fuse box the Internet data can be affected.All I can suggest that you do is try the adapters in your home and if the performance is not acceptable, return them and go with the hard wire solution.I hope that this answers your question. Here are some reports to read for further information: this report and this one

Thank you for the answer regarding Powerline adaptors but you haven't answered my two original questions concerning my Panasonic Recorder/Player? Can I please have those answered as well then I will feel I have had my money's worth!
