It's hard to believe no-one else seems to have asked about viewing BT Sports without the Home Hub, but people will...and soon, so let's see if we can have some information for them, as well as me.
I posted this information in another thread, it probably wasn't the right place for it...but I like covering bases
See what I did there? That's right, no Home Hub. I set up the channels using the Home Hub 2 wired to the box, and after a bit of fiddling about, could view all the new channels, including the HD ones.
Here's the fun part, I hate the Home Hubs, they are not good. This is why I invested in a very good router that blew the HH2 out of the water on all counts...all but one it seems, since I can't figure out how to configure the Asus for multicast. I've enabled it, but there's obviously a lot more to it than that since I get black screen on the internet channels.
Is there anyone out there who can help me watch BT Sport on my Youview box using an Asus RT-N56U?
Please, please, please!
Here's what my IPTV tab looks like at the moment...any ideas what it should look like?
Which version of the Homehub 2 did you use when you did the initial working setup?
Also what fiddling did you have to do to get it working?
i will start by saying i am just your average joe bloggs when it comes to computor stuff i mean i can stumble through most things and usually get there in the end, when you say you hate home hubs..why what has it done to you..talk behind your back or something, steal your girlfriend........you say your new router "blows it out of the water"....how why...i connected my hh3 up to my yv box i have infinity and bttv essentials all the sport channels appeared, HD works, online players all work no dramas it did exactly what it was supposed to do, what would your sooper dooper hub have done any different ?....bt appear to be getting a lot of stick on here maybe rightly maybe not but for me and i expect the vast majority of customers it all went as planned...thank you very much bt....
I also have ASUS RT-N66U because HH3 was so rubbish for wifi - it right that I now cannot use it if I want to keep watching BT Sport?
many thanks Wakeywarrior!! I was stuck on this 24 hours, BT support unable to solve it. Your solution worked perfectly
