I've been given a Talktalk "Youview" box to fix, or diagnose, or

of some sort but I can't go any further because they forgot to include
the remote control. Assuming I'm eventually supplied with this, if
something doesn't make itself obvious very quickly I might just hand
it back marked "no fault found". I should really have learned by now
that life's too short to worry about other people's problems when they
can't even tell you what they are.


Youview boxes are virtually useless without an internet connection.


We have one (with a hard-wired internet connection),but it would work
like any other 1Tb HDD Freeview PVR without the internet.

It might be worth asking if the owner had wired it into his router.


Are there any that have no recording medium? I have seen a TV like that,
but not (yet) a box.
