I've just got YouView and the associated DSL-3780 Router having previously used my own Netgear. All is working except my IP camera's for remote viewing. I have setup what I think is port forwarding under virtual servers but I'm being refused access when trying to view the cams remotey using a no-ip.com hostname.
One thing I have noticed is that even though the cameras are connected via wifi (I can view them using the local IP address) they are not showing in the LAN table of the router.
Any advice appreciated.

What happens when you try and access the cameras and does not work, do you get an error message? Are you using your external Ip address to access the camera or the no-ip.com hostname?
I have tested this on our test bed and am unable to replicate the problem. These are the steps I have tested to forward the ports to a webserver. First I ensured the router had default settings and no other port forwarding rules were setup in order to prevent any conflict.
Log on to the router, go to advanced, then adanced again,
Click on Virtual servers
Tick to enable virtual server rules
Name: Enter what ever name you wish
Internal IP: 192.168.1.2 (this is the IP address of the device you are forwarding to)
Internal startport: 80
Internal endport: 80
External endport: 80
Protocol type: All
Once the settings have been applied you can then test by accessing your external IP address outside of your network such as through a 3G connection.

I setup in the same way using different ports obviously and use no-ip.org hostname to resolve the IP (both cameras and router support no-ip). I did notice initially that if I put the single port in the settings nothing worked but if I added a range spanning 1 port eitherside of the one I wanted to forward it worked ok. Everything seemed to work fine but whilst away it looks like either my IP refreshed or the router rebooted, my cameras email me when the routers public IP changes, and since then remote access doesn't work form and external IP e.g. my smartphone running on 3G. I don't currently have access to the router to check the setup but am receiving alerts from the cameras so they have obviously reconnected to my local WAN and are able to send out email notifications.
I'll give the setup another go once I have access and let you know how I get on.
