How can I record on BT Sport channels from my Youview Box on to my Humax?

Hi, I am a new BT Customer and was told I would be able to record BT channels on my existing Humax box instead of having to get a Youview+ box. 

 

Does anyone know how I can do this? My Youview box only has an aerial-in not and aerial-out.

 

Thanks!

You need a Youview+ box to record, the starter box doesn't contain a hard disk to record to.

Is this box one that you have bought or one from BT?

You need to sign up to BT TV & you'll be given a Youview+ box as part of your monthly subscription. Then you can record BT Sport.

Which box do you have? If it's a Humax branded box it'll record, you just have to press the button on the remote control. 

 

If it's this one:

you cannot record on it. There's no harddrive in the box.

Its a HUMAX FVP-4000T - I can record freeview on it. I know I can get a Youview + box but purposefully didn't do this as I would have had to pay more for it per month and as I already had the Humax (which I thought I would be able to record on it), I didn't want to dish out more for the plus box. 

 

Hoping I can still do it??

Oh and yes the Youview box I have is that one....

I got it when I signed up to BT Sport / BT TV and Broadband package. 

 

My HUMAX box is separate and bought separately. 

 

But I thought even though its not a Youview Plus box, I could still somehow link it to my existing other HUMAX box and record...

Your Humax box will not work with BT Sport or extra channels. You can watch them though the BT Youview box however it will not record.

No. You'll need a Youview+ box to record. You can buy one from a retailer or ask BT about upgrading.
