Youview digibox not working properly. OK on Freeview, etc. Records OK but won't play back. I know it records, in a while I can get a programme to play back, but, most times, the programme's content, etc., comes up, only to leave a blank screen when I press play. Problem developed about a week ago
Thank you question, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you.

Gave it the 10 mins. off. At switch on, tried one of my recorded programmes and it worked. Then tried some of the others - no success. Went back to the one which did work, tried again - no result. Surely a faulty digibox?

yes, a faulty hard drive sorry, this confirms it
I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the box to have it replaced. It will be covered by the warranty, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you.
I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you
