I have a pair of BT Mini Connectors working over the house electrics. I use channel 1 to connect my BT YouView box to my BT SmartHub 6. This works fine & it also works if I move it to channel 2. I have tried to connect my Smart TV to the Hub 6 over channel 2. This crashes my YouView box connection. If I disconnect the YouView box the Smart TV will work in either channel. Is there any reason why the two will not work together? I have looked at all the user guides & instructions for the BT Mini Connectors but can find no mention of using both channels.

There are not actually 2 discrete channels. You are effectively just extending one Ethernet port on the hub to a splitter with 2 ports at the distant end. This works ok for 2 normal devices but won't work if one of the devices is a YouView box, which works on Multicast, as it will interfere with the other device.
