Hi @Jonford1988 

 if you can’t get the remote working  , then if you have a USB keyboard  then you could try using that details at 

https://support.youview.com/youview-box/accessibility/use-a-keyboard-as-a-remote/

Also if you have had a previous Youview box then any of those BT or Humax Youview remotes would control the box.

Re: Bt tv pro box remote not working

Unfortunately I haven’t got a usb keyboard also I think it’s the most recent bt pro box as I have only had it a few months I’ve tried everything I have read online and on these forums but nothing works I will give bt a ring when they are open again at the moment I’m using the free view on my tv as I can’t use the bt tv pro box until I can get the remote to work

You say you've taking the batteries out for a bit - but I assume you have tried new non-rechargable batteries too?

Could even be a faulty box if it isn't doing anything.

I was thinking that I think the Bluetooth might be broken in the box I will give them a ring when it’s open

I had this exact same issue the other day. Got it solved by doing a factory reset on the box via the maintenance mode option. Luckily could pick the option to keep the recordings which it did. This seemed to fix the remote issue.

Hi I have a Pro box and for some reason the remote stopped working with it yesterday. Like the answer above, fix for me was to get into Maintenance Mode and do the second option (factory reset, keep recordings).

Re: Bt tv pro box remote not working

Oh and meant to say if you're wondering how I used the remote with the box during reset? It seems to work 'line of sight' but not bluetooth during Maintenance. I found this the hard way as my box is tucked away.
