port 1024 open on BT smart Hub X

Hi there

 

I've just upgraded my broadband today to ultrafast and I am connected via the New Smarthub X (G-Fast) and one of the first things I did was run a test at shields up and noticed that port 1024 was open and it failed the stealth test.

 

Now I have read some old threads that suggest this could be the youview box, but this does not make sense really as the port still shows as visible (but closed) if the youview box is turned off at the mains, so it must be the router that leaves this port open.

 

The odd thing is that using my own router it was perfectly stealthed and the youview box worked fine, so I have to ask..

 

1) why is it open at all on the BT SmartHub ?

2) Is it a risk of any kind ?
