Vision+ & Youview together

I signed up to infinty and Vision last September. BT are upgrading me to Youview on 21/01/13.  Can i still use both boxes as i have a lot of Freeview programmes recorded.  Im not worried about freeview or on demand content just what i have recorded from freeview that may take a few months to watch?

 

Im assuming i can keep the vision box or will they want it back?

Hi

 

Yes you can use both; we are doing just that with the old black box. It all works as before except the ESPN card doesn't work (which I didn't expect it to) as this is not part of the YouView package.

 

BT recently mentioned they are considering a formal multi-room option so the Visions Boxes may get chopped at that point but I suspect that will be many moons away!

 

Regards

 

Tim

Thanks Tim but does the old box need to be connected to the router and does freeview work on it if it isnt?

Hi

 

We are running both at the same time connected to the HH3.

 

To be honest I didnt try without but the Vision Box doesnt normally work without a Broadband connection and you certainly dont get the programme guide.
