BT YouView connected to BT HomeHub 5 via a Netgear Switch
I'm thinking of getting BT Entertainment Plus and was wondering does the Youview+ Box's Extra channels work if connected via a Netgear switch? The reason I have the switch is because my HomeHub 5 is 10m away from my XBOX 360 and Bluray player and I'd like to connect the Youview+ Box the same way as they are connected to my network/internet.

As long as the switch routes multicast packets then it should be fine. (The internet channels built in to the YV box - i.e. those NOT using an app - such as BT Sports use multicast. Those channels, like Motors TV, that connect via a (hidden) app will work fine without multicast).
