What Homehub do you have in your setup?

Re: BT Sport and Powerline Adapters

I have a home hub 4 (Was a beta tester) and I am using powerline adaptors and get all of the channels OK including BT sports. Think it may be the luck of the draw.

Re: BT Sport and Powerline Adapters

i was all set to bin my devolo 200AV PLA adapters and upgrade them since i was having issues and I read all about multi cast, IGMP etc.

 

Seesm the key is being on a Home Hub or other ADSL modem with a downstream chain that carries the multicast.  I have HH3 with port 1 going to PLA, and then PLA going to 4 way ethernet switch behind TV, and one cable from there to YouView box.

 

I had to take my Airport Extreme out of the loop as it doesnt work.

 

It now works fine on all the channels HD and SD.

Hopefully when I get my replacement Homehub 3 that will solve my problems.

My PLAs are 200 Mbps.  Would it make any difference if I upgraded to 500 Mbps ones?

Re: BT Sport and Powerline Adapters

it wont make any difference as the bandwidth they offer will never be used.

Re: BT Sport and Powerline Adapters

Homehub 3 arrived today.

 

Fitted it and everything worked first time using 200mb Devolo homeplugs..

 

Another sarcastic well done to BT for not checking if the router I already had from them was compatible with the service they are selling.

 

Homehub 2 dont waste time trying to get it to work.

Re: BT Sport and Powerline Adapters

 

 

Congratulations Scamartist!  You've given me fresh hope.  My Home Hub is a 3.  The PLAs I have been using were supplied by BT when I first got Vision years ago.  They are Simpler Networks 200Mbps.  Does anyone know if these are a good make?  They've been fine with the old silver box but the new black box seems to need a stronger signal.  Would it be worth my trying a better quality of PLA before giving up and going back to the old box?
