Check your cables
Your HDMI cable might be acting up. Disconnect it from your YouView box and TV and then reconnect it. Check the HDMI connection between the TV and the box to ensure they are secure and make sure no other cables are attached e.g. SCART.
Still not working? Try using a different HDMI cable or connect the cable to a different HDMI port on your TV.
Restart your box
The old “switch it on and off” routine. Overused but it can often help resolve the issue. Press and hold the button on your box for 8 seconds, then let go. You’ll be greeted with a friendly ‘Hello’ telling you that your box has restarted.
Restart your TV
A quick step this. Just turn off the plug for your TV, wait a few seconds and then turn it back on. Now see if this has helped.
Remove extra equipment
Not all equipment is HDCP friendly. If you are using a device (like a HDMI switch or DVD player) in between your YouView box and TV, try disconnecting it. The HDMI cable should be the only connection between your box and the TV.
If you are using an HDMI splitter or audio equipment, this may be causing issues with the HD signal authentication. We recommend connecting the box directly to the TV to check this fixes the issue.
