Hopefully should receive my BT Youview box next week so will be doing some testing in regards to multi-room setup for BT Vision as I also have a retail Youview box.
Will let you know how it goes as hope it works, as with NowTV i'll be able to have multi-room setup for that as well

I currently have a BT Vision unlimited package and last month purchased my own retail youview box. Both boxes have been used to watch films individually via the BT Vision service or by having both the black box play vision content and the youview box play nowtv content without any issues
So as I'm awaiting a new bt youview box to arrive I decided to try a test with both boxes playing content from bt vision at the same time and can confirm that this works without any problems.
My vision box is on the classic software and was playing a standard SD film as HD needs to be partially downloaded to it, before you can play it, while SD is instant.
On my youiew box I played a HD movie as this is instant and again this worked perfectly.
So multi-room does work with two boxes.
The next test I may try is when my BT Youview box arrives and see if can have all three devices playing content at the same time. If this works then BT would definitely be onto a winner here, if they promoted multi-room capabilities.

Hi; I have recently upgraded from Black BT Vision Box to BT YouView. We are running both machines and both work perfectly together at the same time.
This just leaves your final test above to confirm everything works with everything; as you say a possible big winner for BT (and those thinking of moving over to YouView)
Well both Youview boxes can stream at same time in HD without any problems - so well pleased with that
Spoke to a chap tonight who was very helpful on sorting something else out and him did mention not to trt buying anything on the old BT Vision box as it may stop new box from working.
I'll be connecting the box up once i ring bt as no power line adaptors came with it
