As you see, BBC is listed so you should be receiving these.
Are you getting these other channels?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

I am receiving no BBC programmes.

Most programmes on your list I am not receiving.

There seems to be quite a few Sky programmes listed on these new channels on Talk Talk which I didn't have before and I don't really want now. !!

Programmes at Virgin Media Started at 101 upwards

how exactly have you connected the youview to the TV?
Are you sure you are not just connected to the aerial cable?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

There is no aerial connection to the youview.

Mains connection to TV and Youview and connection joining them both and connection to the router

ok, then it points to the channels being weak in signal reception from the box or an issue with the box itself.
I want you to perform a maintenance mode recovery please William.
To do this, please do the instructions on my link below and when finished tell me if you now get the channels
Let me know the results please

Hello Richard,

many thanks for your input so far.

Everything seems to work fine, even with the aerial and scart cables disconnected.

I get lots of Sky and As***** *****nels plus other assortments, but but, I still don't get any BBC channels.

The BBC channels are the ones I would like most of all.

Did you do my previous instructions though?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

I have followed your advice and the instructions for the

TalkTalk Device Model:DN360T and I am now waiting !!

Bearing in mind that I am a very old Luddite I might not be too quick to catch on.

I have to go out now, I'll check things when I return.


Ok, so you complete the instructions completly? Do you now get BBC?
Richard and other Computer Specialists are ready to help you
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

No I don't get BBC or ITV but plenty of SKY and other assortments.

I decided to put back my old Sky Box back on in order to see if everything still worked perfectly.

Everything did work perfectly. I had to make sure the dish antenna was connected.

I will now try again from scratch and reconnect the youview box

That is the next step, connect everything again back up and tell me if you ten get BBC, if not we will move onto the next step

Hello richard,

I have done everything you advised. I have reconnected the view box, supervised by my ex wife to make sure I did it properly!!

I get an excellent picture. The channels start at 401 up to 562. None of these channels were on the list you sent me.

There is still no BBC or ITV channels coming up

ok, then you will have to call and have your account checked. If that is ok, then the box will need to be swapped out William
Call on 0870(###) ###-####
Once you have verified yourself on the phone, this can then be checked for you.
But you will need to call to proceed further sorry.
If you have continued 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

Hello Richard,
I made the telephone call and was advised after a brief conversation that my aerial was incompatable with the Youview Box or ViceVersa. So will now revert back to my SkyBox.
