I have seen this question posted previously with no answer, hopefully I will get one.
Is my box faulty?
The box will not switch on in the mornings although it used to. (the light stays red) The only way to turn the box on is to unplug from the mains, leave unplugged for a while, plug in then ok. This is very very annoying. There must either be a fault with the box or maybe a buggy software upgrade. It is a stupid idea anyway that there is no option in the settings to keep the box on. So I have it set on the maximum 12 hours but it still turns off well before 12 hours.
Some one please help.
Are you on High eco mode? It will take a lot longer to wake up if you are.
I also have the same issue,
the box is not on high eco mode i have reset back to defaults and took it office high eco mode again
I had a similar problem but it turned out to be the batteries in the remote control even though my YouView box is only two months old. The giveaway is that the red light on the PVR button would only half-heartedly flash when another button was pressed. Additionally it didn't control my TV either.
For the first few times I temporarily got over the problem by twisting the batteries around. However I only permanently resoved this by putting in new batteries.
