Which Powerline adaptors ship with Youiew

Can anyone tell me which Powerline adaptors are supplied with the BT Youview offering?

 

Or more to the point, are they better than the comtrend units I had for Vision which initial connect fine and then gradually drop in speed to something unusable?

 

Thanks

I would have to guess at BT issuing the Simpler Networks PLA's (HP200PT64BT2).

 

(these have been factory modified to suit BT's requirements:()

Thanks, I've no experience of these - any idea how reliable they are compared to the comtrend 9020 which I had terrible problems with?

Well my comtrends served me well for 3 years before they failed, plus you could access their UI and adjust this and that. The Simpler Networks ones seem to work fine for me and other users of these PLA's say they work better than the Comtrend ones.

Are they going to be provided with them or will they be at extra cost?

I would guess to say they'll be foc.

 

BUT you would need to make BT aware at the time you place the order that you need a pair as they no longer send them out with every vbox.

If you make it clear you want/need a pair, they will be included in the £49 fee plus p+p (£7).

I can confirm that I received the Simpler Networks adaptors with my YouView box as a seperate parcel.
