Getting a BTP-160 error when trying to access the subscription channels, including BT Sport after a Factory reset. That had to be done to fix and issue with the box powering down when attempting to record or play any existing recording. The Factory Reset (keep all recordings) from the Maint page failed to fix the problem so had to do a full Factory Reset which deleted all my recordings but did fix that issue. That's bad enought but now I can't get to any subscription channels - only terrestrial cahnnels and Players work. Seen this before on this forum after a factory reset. I suspect it's some sort of registry issue at the BT end and it doesn't recognise the box. Been on to BT suffice it to say no further forward and I'll never get that time back !
Solved! Go to Solution.
Come on people somebody must have had this before ... though I suspect it's a registration issue and subject to an update to a BT system!
If you've completed a factory rest you'll need to make sure that the software has updated. To do this, press the Home (or YouView) button, then go to Settings > Software Information > Update Software and press OK.
Once that complete try launching the BT Player.
Please give that a try and post back to let me know how you got on.
Yeah, already updated the software. I suspect after the Factory Reset the box may no longer be known on some BT system as that 'resets' too and so that box is not 'registered' for the account - hence the subscription services aren't viewable. The services will be associated with the Home Hub number but I believe there is an ID for each box - that has possibly been reset. That may either take a day to register itself via the Hub to a BT system or someone at BT has to do it.
I believe that a Bt expert has responded on your original thread giving advice .. effectively a further factory reset. Check that thread for his explanation and recommended action
Thanks very much for that! That has worked! I now have all the subscription channels viewable by repeating the 'full' Factory Reset.
