Based on information read on these forums I have purchased a TP-Link TD-W9980 to replace my HH 5. I have set the modem/router up using the built in profile VDSL_BT and can connect to the internet etc - much more stable than the HH.
Now I was lead to believe (and some posts do seem to confirm this) that this modem/router combo will also work with YouView and give me access to the additional internet channels, iPlayer etc - this is currently not working! Those that do have this fully working did you have to do anything else in the configuration?
I am running the most recent firmware released - published on 150507. Do I need to downgrade the firmware to get this going? Is anyone on the current firmware level and got full YouView access?
The only thing I can note is that I don't know what the firmware level was when it was purchased - but I set it using the quick config and then did a firmware update. I guess its possible that I need to restore to factory so that it is at the most recent firmware and set up from scractch again - in case I have carried over a big somewhere along the lines.
The firmware published 141215 does specifically mention YouView working in its release notes so I am hoping it is possible.
Comments and help please people! Thanks in advance...
Solved! Go to Solution.
Have you made sure that the "Enable IGMP proxy" setting is selected?
Thanks Scointer, Do you use an Openreach Modem or the inbuild VDSL modem?
I reset the router to factory last night but I was still unable to receive YouView internet channels etc. I decided to factory reset the YouView box and following that everything is working as expected - I am very happy with the router.
