Can't really blame them for not supporting talk talks box but the hardware is inferior in the talktalk boxes going to be trying this myself next week though when my bt infinity is installed next week 🙂

On the Bt Vision I think you would have benefited from BT quality of service(QOS) being applied to its on demand (which is where all the catchup other than BBc iplayer was). What is your broadband speed and are there other users accessing the broadband whiilst you are watching the catcghup ?

Re: Old Talk Talk youview box

Hi Zulu17 my broadband speed is about 7meg, me being stupid i thought the bt vision box never used my normal broadband as it never counted towards my download limit(when on 10gb package) and never had buffering when kids on the internet but the youview box keeps buffering every minute on bbc iplayer.

 

so does this also mean i can cancel my bt vision subs? 

 

thanks for any imput

Given you say you acquired an old box you might also want to check that you have latest Huawei Youview updates.
