powerline adapters and buffering during catch up

Go to solution

 

I have a BT infinity connection, Smart Hub and Humax Youview box. The Youview box is connected to the Hub via Netgear powerline adapters. The problem that I'm having is prolonged buffering when using BBC iPlayer to catch-up.

If I go to the Smart Hub control panel and view the Humax data, it shows 953 Up and 37.52 Down. Is the latter too slow due to the powerline adapters and the cause of the buffering. If so I would be grateful for advice on suitable powerline adapters and replacements.

Your speeds are far above what you require so no problems there. I also had issues with BBC iplayer and it was suggested to me to change to iplayer beta. You can do that from within settings when in the iplayer. It has helped me so hopefully would also work for you.

Just watched a 1 hour programme without any sign of buffering. Thank you again. IPlayer beta seems to have solved it
