New BT box problems

I have only recently began with BTTV and have a new bt box. The box will frequently reset into maintainance mode, usually overnight. I have reset the box through each of the settings on there which include factory resets, with and without keeping recordings. I contacted live help who were of no help as they suggested turning it off and back on again, which I did. Then asked if it turned on ok and I said yes. They then said they were glad BT could sort my problem for me. Other than factory resets which do not help, the only other thing I have found which decreases the frequency of the crashes is to keep the box in always on mode which is not ideal. Is there anything I can do that hasn'e been tried or is this new box just truly faulted?

Re: New BT box problems

Hi @JohnWilton  thanks for confirming.

Can only speculate but given that the problem seems only to be occurring at start up then it could be a problem with the loading process possibly the hard drive checks not completing successfully.

Check back on this thread later for further guidance.

Re: New BT box problems

Hi @JohnWilton,

I am sorry to see that it keeps getting stuck in maintenance mode. From my checks, I do believe that the box is faulty. I've ordered a replacement Youview + box free of charge. It's due to arrive on this Thursday, 7th of March. I'll be in the office on both Thursday and Friday should you get a chance to test the box I've sent you. I'll be in touch on Friday if I haven't heard back from you by then.

Thanks
