I understand that the new Wi Fi discs have an ethernet socket. Has anyone tried to use one to connect to a BT Youview TV box. I want to move my Youview box to a room in which an ethernet connection is virtually impossible. I have not had a reliable connection via power line adaptors. On the face of it this might be a solution. Also will the discs work only work from the smarthub? I use a Homehub 5 which is much more reliable than the smarthub albeit with an cable connection to the TV box
Solved! Go to Solution.
The black discs, I think. I wanted to know whether they have sufficient strength and reliabilty of signal from the router so that if a Youview box was connected via the ethernet socket on the disc, the Youview box would work
Thanks for this, and I accept what you advise, but why does the NOWTV box which I use in the room where I would like to put the Youview box work so well. It has all the Freebiew channels and Watch again and works really well using Wi Fi. Why can't the BT box be as effective!?
The BT YouView box extra content is delivered by multicast which requires a good error free transmission path, to work properly.
Now TV uses unicast which is does not have these limitations.
