    Youview box without subscription. Can I still record and rewind?

    A friend is giving me a Youview box to give to my dad as he's bought a TV where the EPG is awful.

    its a Huawei TalkTalk Youview 320gb box. Will it work exactly like a freeview box without an internet connection and will the Record , Pause etc... still work?

    Can I connect it via wifi for the catch up services?

    No it's Ethernet cable only, although if you Google it I think you can use a certain dongle to adapt it to wifi.

    it works. you won't be able to access BT sport section. you can check the tv guide for 1 week forward and backward and play iPlayer programmes from there. plus you can access BBC iPlayer etc....

    If your sky box was the older type with a separate WiFi adapter that will work with the Youview box as will any other WiFi adapter, gaming adapter or wireless bridge that connects via ethernet. I will be selling mine soon on the auction site. They go for about a tenner and work well.
