About this deal

When you press the power button to enter maintenance mode the screen goes black and it never comes up. YouView will enable you to schedule recordings and there's nothing different about the process on the T2100 compared to the T1000. The YouView Recordable TV Box Wall Bracket is another great addition to our line of Original innovative Mounting Solutions. If you are in the market for a PVR to record TV, watch the free to air HD channels, and stream the free Catchup services then you won't go too far wrong with this box.

The maximum is probably 1Tb or 2Tb as there is some sort of addressing limit on some computer systems for drives above 2Tb. I still have the old 1tb drive which I’ll just keep handy for a month just in case etc… it still spins up and passes Win 10 disk health checks so we will see how long it lasts.Hi Rob, The drives are formatted with Linux-compatible partitions so if you boot up your computer using a Linux live-CD or live-USB image you should then be able to read the files off the YouView hard drive. There's a 500GB hard drive, so plenty of space in the MyView section to series link your favourites, providing 300 hours of SD content, or 125 hours of HD content. e. they won’t fully emerge from their rubber mounts and will stay under the metal shield but they will release the drive. The box is 237mm wide (143mm narrower than the older T1000 model shown below) and is designed to match BT’s Home Hub 4 and 5 routers. They mention that it is versatile, easy to install and operate, and the rest of the process was automatic.

It means however that I almost never use the EPG to look at previous days for programmes, so the much vaunted ability to look back 7 days in the EPG is not actually that useful. What the review does not mention concerning IPTV channels is that it picks up very few of the 225-260 IPTV channels that are in the freeview guide and those it does take a very long time to switch over to. It seems that the BBC and others are reducing their involvement in the platform although it seems a fairly safe bet with so many BT and TalkTalk subscribers. A small array of buttons on top means you can still control the basic functions if you lose the remote, and the remote itself is also new. And, yes, once you’ve got to the Maintenance mode screen and selected Software Reset you do have to suffer a few minutes with a blank screen!The only problem I had was trying to get the maintenance screen up once the HDD had been replaced – it took about 3-4 attempts before the box finally responded and after that it was plain sailing from then on in. YouView boxes generate heat and as such should be mounted in a place away from direct sunlight and with sufficient airflow i. It’s easy to press the mute button instead of navigating left, or bring up programme information instead of pressing up.
