I have set my DVR with a fixed address 192.168.1.147 etc and attempted to do the ‘Port Forwarding’ but the ports still aren’t open (80,443,554,8000).
When I look at the ‘Activity Log /Event Log on the Router I can see that the DVR is connected to Port 4 but it keeps failing. I have tried it on Lan Port 2 as well - its the same. Log extract below

I can reset my DVR back to the setting for Virgin and it still works on iVMW-4500 okay so Dvr cabling seems ok.Can anyone point me in the right direction please?
Have you turned off Smart Setup What is Smart Setup on the BT Hub? How can I turn it on and off? | BT Help
Also try changing the IP address to a static one in the range of 192.168.1.2 - 192.168.1.63,. You do that on the device itself, not on the hub
Thank you I will look at the smart setup.
I have found my old BT smart hub which the nvr was set up to before Virgin. I can see the nvr on the lan port now but the nvr reports itself as “offline”
I have determined my static address is 192.168.1.216 and set on the nvr.
Nothing has been changed since the old router was last used and port forwarding is still set up as it was when it worked! Another mystery and port 8000 isn’t open so will contact the technical help tomorrow re port forwarding on both routers
Again thank you for your help
