Hi ! Yes bt sport and the kids channels I have subscribed to . That was yesterday when I tried. ! I haven’t checked today .
Then the new Smart Hub 2 is totally different in that respect, as the other home hubs would not transmit multicast over wireless.
There may be range restrictions, but if you have them both in the same room, then it looks like it will work.
I've been running a set up like this for a year now. BT say it won't work, but it does.
I run a cable from one of my 6 discs to a powered Netgear switch and from there to a BT Youview box, and a Naim hifi streamer for music. The Whole Home Wifi is connected to the first generation Smart Hub (with its wifi switched off).
All works great. A BT engineer said the latency would be too great for it to work on BT Sport...but it does fine.
And I would say the disc is about 12 to 15 metres from the Primary disc, in a different room.
I don't think it will support 4K Ultra HD though (but that doesn't bother me). All my subscription channels work fine.
I think i may need to go down this route as the powerline adapters don't appear to work with our youview ultra box.
I'm currently running a first generation BT hub so hopefully if multicast can be transmitted over the wifi then this may solve my issues.
Which discs are you using and are they easy to set up?
Hi there, I am using the WiFi “complete “ hub and the discs that come with it .
I think you need that hub and the discs that go with it. Once you have the hub and a couple it’s very easy .....I am normally hopeless Grandma with these things !!
So I'm guessing that i'd need to change my home hub that BT originally supplied?
This solution also appears to improve the known compatibility issues with Sky Q TV with the main box cabled into a wifi disc
Just got a new Hub 2 and disc from Gumtree and I tried a disc on my old Hub and it never worked.
Changed over to the new Hub 2 plugged disc in and it worked flawlessly not only that I place disc near my Amazon TV used the Ethernet port not only did it work, the speed was a lot faster.
Do I have to set the box up with the hub or can you set it up via WiFi disc
@Nicjam808, welcome to the community and thanks for posting. It's recommended that you use either the supplied ethernet cable or mini connectors to connect the TV box to your Hub. I have seen customers who have managed to use the discs without an issue but if it won't work via the disc we can't offer technical support.
