Re: Known Routers to Work with Multicast/IGMP

When I get to step 3 there is no option for entering the info shown, all i see is as below????

 

 

ADSL  

Profile Port  EWAN 
ProtocolPure Bridge
VLAN MuxEnable802.1Q VLAN ID [2 - 4095]

 

What is mentioned in that link is only visible for ADSL as per the image shown in that link and hopefully below:

Re: Known Routers to Work with Multicast/IGMP

Ignore my last post and read the one that walkerx pointed you to and do exactly as I did in that post.

 

IE. The solution for the Billion is to add another profile (Pure Bridge) to the EWAN port along with the PPPoE profile. Save settings & restart. I've also enabled IGMP proxy & snooping.

 

The EWAN port will have to profiles against it now & you should have no issues getting the multicast internet channels.

Re: Known Routers to Work with Multicast/IGMP

First thanks for taking the time to reply, it is appreciated.

 

Because I felt I followed info I found on here etc and have had no joy I now feel I need to make sure it is not something obvious that I am doing wrong:

 

I think my firmware is 1.06D and it looks like the latest is 1.06G.  An issue?

Re: Known Routers to Work with Multicast/IGMP

That was one of the first links I found and followed but no joy.

 

Think I will update firmware in a bit (after tea) and try again.

 

I think I remember you mentioning "I assume you mean BT sport channels etc" that I was trying to view?

 

To be clear it is the extra channels i.e Animal Planet, Nat Geo etc

 

I had already taken up the BT sport from the start through my SLY box

Hi

 

Please add the Draytek Vigor 2830 to the list of working Multicast routers. Just ensure IGMP Proxy is enabled in the Applications menu.

Re: Known Routers to Work with Multicast/IGMP

Please add the Vigor 2860 to the list of working routers, again just enable IGMP Proxy/Snooping. I can confirm that the Vigor 2930 does not work even though you can enable IGMP proxy on it from a command shell.

Re: Known Routers to Work with Multicast/IGMP

Revival!

 

So I have a TP-Link TL-WDR4900 but stopped using it a while ago as I was still getting the "You are not using a HomeHub so some channels might not work" blah blah message. Initially it was rare, then occasional, then regular until it was almost everytime I turned the Vision+ box on. Sometimes it would pop up while I was watching TV already.

 

This and the Wifi wasn't as good as the Netgear WNDR3700 I had before the multicast no-work bombshell.

 

So, has anyone else using a TP-Link router had these messages of various regularity? Did you find a way to stop them?

Re: Known Routers to Work with Multicast/IGMP

Hi,

 

I have a netgear router (R7000) and was trying your suggestion for getting the router to work with youview.

 

For some reason it won't do it, I was having a slight problem following your instructions as well.

 

Is there any chance you could provide some screen shots to show exactly which fields you have altered in order to get it to work?

 

Also do you have the youview box plugged into the BT HH or the netgear router now?

 

Thanks!
