Hi..... I've been wanting to move from Sky TV to BT TV for a while now, but I see the YouView box is not WiFi enabled. I believe you need to use the Power Adaptors. I've used adaptors previously and the connect is unstable in my property and refuse to use them again. Also in this modern age, I surprised to see a provider such as BT not offering WiFi as standard on their boxes.
Can someone please let me know if enabling WiFi on the YouView Box is on the product roadmap (and also the reason for not enabling it in the first place)? Until the box is WiFi capable I will remain with Sky.
Welcome to this user forum. @MNicholls
Its not going to happen, as normal wifi does not have the capability to handle multiple multicast streams, as that is how the extra BT YouView channels are delivered.
Some people have managed to get the BT Complete WiFi system discs to operate the BT YouView box, as they do support multicast over wireless.
So that may be an option for you?
You could always bite the bullet and run an ethernet cable from the router to you TV set up. Use an ethernet switch to connect Youview, TV and any other AV kit you may have to give you a solid, stable connection.
As you may be aware, the BT approved method is to use the BT Mini Connectors, as these are specifically designed to work with BT YouView and will carry the multicast packets.
