BT Vision..clarification needed..

  funbubble 20:50 10 Apr 2008

Just taken delivery of a bt vision box..

I just want to use it as a 'freeview' box, without paying the £30 connection fee for the pay per view stuff.

Can someone clarify that this is possible?

I have read somewhere (internet forum) that it IS...however as I'm getting error messages on boot up I have my doubts.

Thanks techno!

I have trawled that page and also the "radio and telly" bt support page.

I have a broadband set up with bt and all cables are connected.

I have just had a quick read too - seems as if you will need to pay the one-off £30 I think. I also have the BT HomeHub Broadband Option 3, but I already have all the digi-channels I want.

Just been on the blower to bt ...

after trial and testing the powerline adapters it has become clear that the powerline adapters that carry the ethernet signal were out of synch as they are on different house has unusual wiring layout.

solution..move one powerline adator and get a long ethernet cable to btvision box.

this should sort it...

will drop feedback on a new thread if and when its sussed.
