Well, what do you know? Last nights American Football Recording on ESPN Failed.
When I switched onto TV guide I realised that's probably because alll the internet channels have disappeared.
Getting the error message IPC6002 - BTV-251-M
Needless to say, switching the box off/on again restored the channels, but not my failed recording!
This is testing my patience way beyond its limits.
I'm away for a couple of days now, but do feel free to help ease my pain!
Have you tried setting the TV box to have a static IP, this may help.
To do this simply do the following,
1. Log into the Hub here (http://192.168.1.254/)
2. Go to Advanced Settings > Home Network > Click on the TV box
3. Click 'yes' on the 'always use this IP Address' option
4. Then click 'apply'
1. Go to Settings > Network & Internet > Wired Connection – select Manual
2. Insert the IP address assigned to the tv box in the hub
Would be good to know if this works 🙂
What Home Hub do you have? Home Hub 5A or 5B?
What eco mode are you in? (Settings > Device Management > Eco-Mode)

Did you try the maintenance mode recovery that I suggested? It's got to be worth a try at least...
But obviously try the recommendation from the BT TV Expert first - I didn't notice this when I posted....
And just to make things even better I'm getting a BT / Lithium User Name / Password request every single time I go onto an individual page or make a comment on this website. Despite clicking 'remember my credentials each time, it doesn't! I genuinely don't know how much more painful the entire BT TV experience could possibly be. Sorry, rant over, for now!
Except, I have an immediate answer to the 'how much more difficult' question. The Lithium prompt now takes at least 3 goes to register my name/password. Crazy, just plain crazy.
Tried this, now I have absolutely no access to internet channels.
Less than good.
