No bbc red button text DTR-t2100

#1
On BBC1 or other BBC tv channels - but the TEXT does work via a BBC radio channel????
Is it a fault, or a quirk of BT youview...

Bearing in mind I have HDR-FOXes...

I use the red button to get to the BBC Red Button service (not the TEXT button - I don't know if that works), but I notice this isn't working. That could be because the data channel has moved from LCN 200 to 250, and I haven't retuned so maybe the red button system can't find its data stream.

Have you retuned (things moved around on 2nd August)?

Thanks for your reply Yes, fresh retune & soft update yesterday. The odd thing, if you tune to a BBC radio channel - the Text works OK, using either the text button or the red button???
Has someone messed up?
The Box seems fine otherwise, picked it up at a car boot yesterday for £4 !! inc remote. Though some sticky finger marks needed cleaning off :)

Youview disabled access on one of the updates last year before new gen was rolled out. It is still there but needs a quirk to have full access, or, as you have discovered for yourself, being tuned to a BBC radio channel and navigating to it via the radio's red button pages.

Rather odd behaviour from youview - perhaps it relieves some of the overtaxed memory space? But thanks.

Just to update: I don't know why my HD-FOX wasn't working, but when I tried an (unretuned) HDR-FOX all was well - the red button or the TEXT button got me the red button service.
