Hi im new here and appologise if this question has been asked before but im a bit miffed...
I got bt youview activated last week then called up and ordered an extra box
which was delivered and activated today, i originally wanted three youview+
boxes in total but BT says they can only provide me with a maximum of two,
even if i pay upfront, i would need to buy the additional box for my
kids room from a retailler which i did and plugged in on saturday there.
I also purchased two Wifi Extenders (not the BT ones) and they seemed to be
working fine on my upstairs boxes, great signal and pulling netflix and all the
other on demand content through fine, however on my second bt subscription box sold by BT that was activated today, the extra channels on my package were not pulling through. Ended up calling BT for advice on how to fix the issue with the box not pulling through
the extra channels and the advisor talked me through various tests etc then said
to restart my home hub and box then she would call me back but after restarting the box
and home hub it still didnt pull through the channels so i had a 25m cat6a ethernet cable lying around which i decided to try so i plugged in and it pulled the channels through fine to my second BT subscription box.
I bought the extenders to save me from having to run a cable upstairs, which i have now had to do. I thought it would just be a matter of running a short cable from each extender to each of the youview+ boxes but my question is, if the extra channels are streamed down the internet, why do they not pull through using wifi extenders but netflix and all the other on demand content does, which again is streamed?
