Hi Keith,

 

What errors would this show up as or owuld it be all crc errors?

 

Cheers


I will move this over to the ADSL speed and connections board.

Meanwhile, if you could look at the following page, and provide the information requested.


To enable forum members to help you, please could you look at Helping forum members to help you which asks you to do a few checks first, and has some helpful hints.
When you have done that, please post the results here, so members can offer advice. Thank you.

 

If you could take a set of readings before the TV is turned on, and another after the TV is turned on, so we can see if there has been a large increase in CRC errors.

 

There are plenty of people on this board, who should be able to help you prove it, one way or another, if I am not available (Looking after three grandchildren at the moment)Smiley Wink

Re: Smart TV uses up all bandwidth even without wireless key

Have figured it out i think Smiley Very Happy

 

THe wire from my sattalite runs through the wall at the same point as the internet wire(before the box on the wall).  It is only the tiniest crossover but must be enough to cause interference.

 

Time to get the drill out.

 

Thanks for your help both.

Glad you've found the problem. Must be poor shielding on the Sat cable.

Could it be a faulty switched-mode power supply on the TV?  I suggest in the first instance you run the tests with the TV unplugged from the mains.

Re: Smart TV uses up all bandwidth even without wireless key

Hi

 

I have been having the same problem and appear to have solved it by turning off my wireless speakers which were connected to my LG Smart TV.  I have not had a problem with my internet connection since doing this.  Hope this helps.
