I have replaced another Youview box. Using the same aerial etc the new YV box is not picking up any BBC channels such as ! and 2. Missing ITV. Only aerial TV channels it found during tuning and re-tunes is MADE Tyne and Wear which is my local area TV channel and couple of others.
When I go into signal strength for BBC one on the other box it shows strength of 65 percent but 100 percent quality.
So far I have reset the box, re-tuned a handful of times and tried other aerial outlets, no success.
Channels obtainable are: MADE, Sony, TRUE crime, The Vault, Tiny Pop, Pop Mix and all the internet based channels.
Help please, would be nice to have Christmas TV tomorrow - currently using the other box.
Do you mean that you have two boxes working from the same aerial, one works but the other does not?
Thats correct - we have 3 aerial outlets.
The one in bedroom - the old YV box picks up channels fine however new one does not.
The new one however now works in the living room.
Baffles me to be honest.
New YV Box - The signal strength indicator eratically jumps up and down as well.
There was a similar post, which was caused by a faulty distribution amplifier.
It could be an issue with signal strength, as no two YouView boxes have the same sensitivity.
You may need a competent aerial installer to check your distribution amplifier and signal levels.
There are some images missing on my posts within that thread, but they can be found on this page, with links to other thread on the forum, which may help. Take a look at this page.
Swap the two boxes over, or exchange the one that does not work properly.
