BT infinity and powerline adapters

Go to solution

I know that BT recommend direct wiring but where that seems too difficult. what are the best powerline adapters that would work with home hub 4 & 5... I see  BT have   the Multiport Broadband Extender 500.. ought thees provide HD TV streaming to my BT vision + box??

 

Also  I see on tha market are Netgear Powerline AV+ 500 Mbps Nano Kit  will these work with Home hub 4 & 5 with BT Vision +. ??

In theory, the BT ones should work, as they are probably designed to handle multiple streams better. The BT stuff has been field trialled, but I am not sure how many tests where carried out, as it appears to have been an internal trial.

 

If they don`t work, you can always send them back and tell them why.

I'm using 4-port Netgear AV200s in my installation.

 

I connect Youview, Sky+HD, WD TV Live , a Panasonic Blu-ray player & 2 other recorders through to my router. Not experienced any issues what-so-ever and speed seems to be more than adequate.

I don't believe that BT guarantees that any powerline adaptors will work with the streaming channels on BT Vision, not even their own.  However, if you get can a good enough connection speed, then many people have reported successes here.

Solwise adapters work well and are reliable

I moved this to a new message as I figured it might never get a response under a Solved issue!
