Had to move from sky to by you view. So far I'm not keen. The most frustrating thing for me is having to now watch all my fave shows via apps which force me to watch adverts! I can't record anything I enjoy. Freeview TV is impossible to access, where the heck is it? Also the small simple remote is grand but the big long one can go in the bin. The worst design I've ever encountered. I can't read the buttons, the texture is too slippy and the 2 central direction sections are too close. I've just spent half an hour hitting the wrong buttons and getting more and more annoyed!! Where can I purchase the small simple remote please urgently?
Not sure why you are having to watch via apps - as all available BT channels are recordable from the Guide.
I bought a One For All (8) remote from Home Bargains for around £12, the BT box isn't among the listed codes but I used the search method and found the right code in just a couple of minutes.
The BT Youview box shares the same codeset as other Humax models such as the Freesat HDR and the Fox T2. You will probably need to teach it the My TV code using the original remote control though but you can get by without it at the expense of an extra key press or two.
The reason is.... On sky all my fave shows are downloadable so if I miss them I download and watch without ads or can at least fast forward them. On this box you either have to remember to record everything or watch it on the app with ads. Also on sky I could start a Prog on 1 box, stop it and move to another room and start watching exactly where I left off. I can't even watch the recording on another box with this. Where you record is where you watch it.
Personally I've never got this absolute fascination with being able to watch the same recording on a different box, why is there a need for that?
