If you’re reading this then quite likely you are having, or think you are having, a HDMI cable problem such as I have had too. This could be anything from a Green Picture on your TV to not enough room at the back of your HD device.
BT TV consists of multiple choices. The first choice is to opt only for the free TV channels (known as TV Starter) through a supplied Youview box. For this you will need a TV aerial system already installed to pick up Freeview channels. Also the Youview box you will get will be unable to record TV programmes (Unless you subscribe to BT Infinity).
Before providing the troubleshooting that worked for me, first I will answer two common questions about BT Television.
The first question is – Can I get BT TV without an Aerial? The answer is a big YES. Although you won’t be able to watch live freeview channels, you can still get the On Demand and premium channels using your Internet connection. You may need to do a software update for the Internet channels to appear, as did I.
The second common question I have come across is – Can I use Powerline Adaptors to connect my BT Youview Box to the Internet? The answer is again YES but if you run into any problems with the setup keep reading.

Yes there is and it’s a legal way! By using a VPN (Virtual Private Network). There are many companies that provide a VPN service one of which is boxpn who offer an annual service for less than $4 a month. Continue reading →
