YouView remote controls
Using your remote in the Guide
Guide – Brings up the guide on your YouView box. Like the menu, it can also be dismissed by pressing the ‘Guide’ button again or pressing ‘Back’.
Page up and page down – Allows you to scroll through the guide page by page rather than pressing the down button.
Fast Forward & Rewind – As well as their usual functions for recordings, you can also use these in the guide to skip to the next or previous day for the same time slot. This is a great way to see what’s on later in the week and get some recordings set up.
Green button – If you’ve scrolled forwards or backwards in the guide and want to get back to what’s on now, hit the green button and you’ll land on the programme which is live now.
Blue button – This is the categories button. Pressing this highlights the bar near the top so you can narrow down the channels you are looking for by filters such as HD, News and Children’s.
Yellow button – Brings up edit channels (if you have the compatible software version) where you can hide any channels you no longer wish to see.
If your remote isn’t working as it should, check this guide and follow the steps to see if it resolves the issue.
If you are using a different brand of remote to the one provided with the YouView box and you are encountering issues with it, please contact the remote’s manufacturer.
If you need further assistance, please contact your box provider, internet service provider (if it is BT, TalkTalk or Plusnet) or drop a message on our community forum and you will receive the help you need.
