How long does it take to start YouView from scratch?

Hi

 

I just received my new YouView box to replace the black Vision box and I nipped home at lunch to swap over and get it started.

 

I had to return to work with the 'YouView - Nearly ready' splash screen and the box displaying 'Please Wait', this had been like that for 20 minutes before I had to go.

 

Is this normal?

 

Cheers

 

Dave

Back home and it's still at it, over 3 hours now

 

Surely that is not right?

Yes...thats not right!

 

Normally its a very short time...maybe a minute...I hate to suggest switcing off and trying again?

Unplug the power cable from the back of the box for a minute. Plug back in and start again.

 

[Of course, as you will have done, check all the connections of cables etc are in order; and that your BT YV account is fully provisioned by going to Bt.com

 

If in doubt of that key point, ring up the helpdesk and ask them].

Thanks for the replies.

 

Rang the helpline and powered it off etc, no joy.

 

An engineer is booked to swap the box out on Saturday.

 

Just as an aside, the box I recieved looks nothing like the ones that crop up on adverts. It's manual was printed in 2014 and has Kermit & Miss Piggy on the cover stating that the Muppet film would be available in HD in August.

 

Very similar dimensions to the black Vision box it 'replaces'.

 

Cheers
