Hi thinking of getting bt sport , at the moment I am using a Powerline adapters for my humax recorder which is working fine , been reading different things about this so not sure
BT have not said that powerline adts will work or have not said that they willn't, so it may be a case of trying and see when BT Sport goes live. As an aside I use Power line adts to to run sky go on my laptop and when I did a speed test on my lappy it was 45Mb downand 12 Mb up and sky go work's great, so going by this I think they jay be ok.
I intend to use PLAs. But I think BT will only support a networking problem if you are using a patch cable between the homehub and the youview box.
TBH I'm not sure if any provider offers support for any sort PLA, I do know for sure Sky don't and will not even entertain any talk of them. I know people that have had mega problems with PLA's for surffing et al and not streaming. Have to wait and see what BT do but I not expect much.
I ordered BT Vision ready for BT Sport and then was told that even though I have 77mb download and 20mb upload through my powerline adaptor BT Sport would not work, by both their sales team and technical department. They would not even give me the BT Sport service to try it out and so I cancelled my order and will just be watching on my Mac
If you are confident that your powerline adapters are fast enough then you're going to have to lie and say that your box is directly connected to your Home Hub to get the service. But accept that if you have problems with watching the live channels you're not going to be able to complain to BT about them!
You do not need mega speed to watch BT Sport. 2Mbps is more than enough. Even the slowest powerline adapter will do the job.
Powerline adapters are networking connections. I do not see any reason why it will not work.
Do not be put off that they do not support it. They would say that just to cover themselves.
