My yv box is remote from hub and I connect with power extenders. Moving hub is not possible as master socket on first floor and front of house. Yv box rear of house/ ground floor.
I get picture breakup on internet channels( bt sport) probably due to power extenders and very bad on 2nd internet channel if recording on another I/net channel.
With Discovery possibly going from sky need to improve my reception, as would cancel sky as little other sport I watch and could get Eurosport with bt.
Could I connect with cat 5/6 cable or coax from hub to yv box successfully and is there a max distance? I can install this but moving master socket too expensive.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Yes, CAT5 Ethernet cable would be just fine. You are unlikely to exceed the 100M maximum length.
Thankyou, hoped that would be the case, I will probably be no more than 30m.
Gomez, Thankyou , would Ethernet splitter be the same as for connecting many computers on a single LAN connection so each has it's own IP address.regards Brian
Ethernet switches use the MAC (hardware ID) address of devices to perform switching. IP addresses are normally issued by the BT Home hub, unless you have manually set them on the device itself.
