TPLink VR600 and BT TV

Anyone out there using a TPLink VR600 with a BT Youview box?  If so what settings are you using.

 

Getting fed up with the HH6 and considering this model as a replacement.

 

Thanks for any comments.

Re: TPLink VR600 and BT TV

From another thread.

 

TP-Link routers in general

How to configure Multicast on TP-Link routers (from the TP-Link website).

 

One of our posters also found the following:

He found that your router must be able to do the following for Multicast:

 

For an end user connected via Openreach GEA (FTTC and FTTH)
• The Residential Gateway will support:
– IPoE for multicast traffic and PPPoE for BB traffic;
– VLAN tag ID of 0 or no VLAN tag ID for multicast and BB traffic;
– Fork IGMP requests up multicast and BB paths.

 

For an end user connected to an MSAN (WBC copper)
• The Residential Gateway will support:

– A dual VC architecture;
– Accept TV Connect multicast traffic on ATM VP/VC 0/35 with IPoE and broadband traffic on ATM VP/VC 0/38 with PPPoE;
– Fork IGMP requests up multicast and broadband paths.

 

IGMP should v3 and will be in range from 225.0.0.0 to 239.255.255.255

Thanks

 

The link you provided is broken and with respect your post doesn't actually answer the inquiry.  That said I'm assuming this is where you intended me to go:

 

http://uk.tp-link.com/faq-1207.html

 

its one thing telling me how to configure it but it is an entirely different matter for someone to confirm it actually works with the BT version of IP TV which is why I posted in the BT YouView thread in the first place and not the connected devices forum.

 

Regards

I can confirm that BT TV does work with the VR600. It's fairly intuitive to set up under the IPTV settings and has been rock solid so far.

Hope this helps.

My VR900 worked with BT TV straight out the box (abeit I put the latest firmware on first) no configuration or anything, i would presume your 600 would be the same ?

VR400 works straight out the box. No special settings.
