YouView have cancelled and withdrawn their mobile App. The functionality has been built into the BTtv app but will not connect to old BT supplied Humax T1000 boxes. Is anyone else having this problem. It just means that I can no longer record programmes from remote devices.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I believe it is due to T1000 box software rather than the BT TV app. The old infrastructure and servers for sending remote record requests to the legacy boxes such a the T1000 is no longer active.
I will have to contact BT about a new box. Thanks.
I have a BT YouView Humax DTRT 1000. The BTTV app wont let me download. Is this because my box is also a " first generation" box not supported?
Thank you for telling me . It has been a devil of a job getting an answer. Humax were no help, and BT and You View just obfuscate or avoid the issue and one wastes a lot of time getting nowhere.
The YouView app was successfully allowing recordings until it was closed at the end of March. The technology therefore still exists. It seems that BT are just not prepared to adapt their system. Even though the box I’m using was the one supplied by BT. Maybe they should offer a discount or free replacement.
The Youview infrastructure and servers for sending remote record requests has completely changed, so the 1st generation boxes such as the T1000 and the Youview App from April onwards would if run still be trying to connect to the old infrastructure that no longer is active.
Later Humax boxes and the BT TV app are now switched over to using the new infrastructure.
If @Oldtimer49 you have a BT Tv subscripton then moving to a newer box should be quite straightforward if you contact them.
