Anyway glad that the OP managed to get everything sorted out - it's great how a call to retentions can often do this
I'm no expert on this kind of thing but do usually follow a couple of forums.
It is interesting that Freesat have decided to launch G2 spec STBs which suggests they are trying to diffrentiate themselves from Youview stbs. I think its confirmed now that G2 will be using HbbTV and apparently Freesat have not even confirmed compliance with Youview yet so Youview will probably be a DTT platform at launch and for quite a while afterwards.
