Hi,

My tv boosts are showing a blank screen, all the freeview channels are working fine. Ive followed the instructions by customer services to factory reset my box but still having the same problem. Ive spoken to live chat who just transfer you to technical. Last night i was waiting to connect for 1/2 an hou then it disconnected and the same is happening now.

Can anyone help please?

Hi Lee

 

I've checked all settings here, and all looks ok. The TV port is correctly configured and tests are passing.  Speeds and line profile settings are correct.  I've checked your account and this is also set up correctly, the relevant info matches up with the IPTV database.  The product and ID's are correct etc, so nothing stands out.

 

First thing is to replace the router incase that is failing to process IGMP data, so a new one is on the way.  Please test this as soon as this arrives and let me know.

 

Thanks

Hi Karl,

 

Thank you you so much. Im really not getting very far with customer services after 3 days of messaging back and forth who now say an engineer is needed? Router works when cable is plugged directly to a lap top and youview box has been reset 4 times. router has been turned on and off 4 times also. Wifi seems slower though.

Regards

Hi Lee

 

The router may work for general internet traffic but IPTV services rely on IGMP data and if a router is failing to process this data correctly then TV services will not work, but on demand and internet traffic will.

 

The new router can help rule this out.

 

Also, is your youview box directly connected to the router with a cable or are you using powerline adapters ?

 

Thanks

Karl.

Hi Karl,

 

No powerline adapter, the cable runs directly from router to youview box.

Just had a message saying they want to send an engineer??

Community Team

Hi

 

The new router should be with you tomorrow or possibly Thursday.  I'd test this first before agreeing to an engineer, just to be safe.

 

Thanks

Hi

 

I've reset everything here to see if this helps.

 

I've also raised this to networks to investigate and asked they confirm multicast traffic can be seen at the port.

 

Thanks

Hi

 

I've updated the fault ticket for our network teams letting them know an engineer has been and there is no problem at your end with setup etc.

 

Thanks

Hi Lee

 

Networks have tried contacting you to confirm a BT appointment as they are seeing a lot of CRC errors.

 

What date is best to request this,  Mon - Fri AM or PM (Excluding BH Monday)

 

Thanks

I had 1 extremely garbled 100mph message left on my home answerphone, couldnt understand a single word, name or number. They didnt try very hard nor call my mobile which i have asked to be used.

At the moment any day, i just keep getting excuses from every one. Last week we were told within 48 hours it would be sorted.
