connecting you view box to hub via whole home wi-fi

Go to solution

My hub is in a seperate room to my you view box and it is not feasable to connect the ethernet cable direct. Would it work if I connected the you view box by ethernet cable to one of the whole home wi fi discs in the same room and for the disc to wirelessly connect to the other disc which is connected to the hub in the other room?

This has been asked before, and the Whole Home system will not carry the multicast packets, so any extra subscribed channels will not work.

You will have to use a couple of BT Mini connectors instead.
