Recently, internet channels such as Sky Sports and BT Sport have been freezing and lagging intermittently on our BT YouView+ box. It is connected to the router using BT Flex 500 power line adapters and shows that it is connected to the internet, proven by the fact that we can access on demand services using the box with no problems. However, now the internet channels have stopped working altogether and we just get error IPC6023. I have restarted and reset the router, box and power line adapters but it has not helped. Speedtest.net shows around 40Mbps down and 7Mbps up (http://www.speedtest.net/my-result/a/4149108836) so there are no problems there. Any help anyone can offer would be greatly appreciated.

This is a very common problem which has been raised a lot on this forum.
As unlikely as it may sound given the detail you have supplied, I would eliminate the power line adapters first as they are a likely cause, if possible connect the box to your router via an ethernet cable, even if it means moving it to another room to do so.
It is possible that basic internet is fine but that the multicast packets which deliver the channels are being lost
Hi @jyos15 thanks for trying with the ethernet cable as that eliminates the adapters.
One more thing I would ask you to try:
Restart your Hub
Wait for the broadband light on your Hub to go blue
Restart your set top box, using the power switch on the back
Now check if you still receive the error
If you're watching an HD version of a channel, switch to the standard version and see if that works OK.
Post back and let me know how you get on.
