youview going into standby

Go to solution

Hi

Does anyone else have my problem that when I put the Youview box into standby after approx 10 mins it blips the tv picture.

I presume that it coincides with the software taking this amount of time to power down the hard drive.

What happens is that the screen goes blank for 1 or 2 secs with the message NO SIGNAL!

I am connected to a Sony tv via hdmi.

Any ideas guys?

Hi mentonman,

 

Thanks for posting. Have you tried changing the standby time? You should find that option in the settings page. Let us know if that helps.

 

Cheers

 

David

Hi David

The standby time is set to 3 hrs but I don't understand what this has to do with my post.The problem is after manually putting the Youview box into standby and then watching a program through the Sony tv tuner.It also happens even when the Youview has just finished recording a program and I have been watching via the tv tuner.

Use a seperate ariel cable for your TV and only use the HDMI cable to connect the Humax box to your TV

You need to do/ensure you've done the following:

 

1. Run the aerial into the YouView box and the HDMI cable from the YouView box to the TV

2. Run an RF cable from the aerial output on the YouView box to the aerial input on the TV

3. Enable Signal pass-though in the YouView setting's menu otherwise it will not correctly pass the signal

Hiya there

 

No I should have explained more clearly

 

Spilt the aerial cable before connecting to the youview box, one of the cables directly to your TV, the other to the Humax box.. That way both get aerial INPUT, you don't need a co-ax cable from the Humax box to your TV (as it has its own input) via the split aerial.

 

Simply use the HDMI cable to connect OUTPUT form the Humax to the TV.
