Re: Fritz 7390 Multicast settings for BT YouView Extra Chann


[re: canemdog] [link to this post]
 
Hi Randy.
Have you made any progress?
I had a similar issue to yours but then I downloaded the latest version of FBEditor (0.7.2 instead of 0.7, which was not working) and managed to upload the modified settings to the Fritz Box. I'm using 7490 with firmware 6.20.
My problem now is that although I have made the changes suggested by Doug, I still cannot see BT TV (BT Sport more specifically) frown

Thanks
Dom

I'm currently engaged with AVM support to get this support made official. I've tested a couple of proposed configuration updates for the 7390 and will soon begin testing the 7490.

Some initial feedback:

- The Fritz!Box 7390 can support YouView Extra Channels only when using the built-in VDSL modem, not when using the Openreach modem.
- The Fritz!Box 7490 should support either configuration.

I'm continuing to test and will reply to this post when I have any news.

Hi Andy,

Sadly not.

AVM removed the 'NoChecks' option, so configurations get rejected unless they have a valid signature. There is a Java tool (FBeditor) to edit configurations but I've not seen anyone have success with recent versions of Fritz!OS.

I'll update here once AVM has news on official support.

Can you revert to an older OS version (I don't know if this one would do it): ftp://service.avm.de/Downgrade/FRITZ!Box_7490/english/ then after the config is patched it can be updated with the patch intact?

Hi Doug - I have BT YouView and a Fritz 3490 (basically the 7490 without the telephony stuff) and am having difficulty with getting the multicast channels to work. Did you get anywhere with AVM adding this as a profile? I did email their support and this is what they told me...

"The FRITZ!Box supports IGMP v2 and v3 and multicast.

For IPTV the FRITZ!Box usually must be connected to an IPTV set-top device
that establishes a second virtual connection via VLAN. It may be possible
to enter this VLAN ID in the FRITZ!Box in section "Change Connection
Settings" on page "Internet > Account Information". Please consult the
service provider for further information on how their service can be used
with a NAT router."

I assume there is nothing I can do with the current interface as I have already selected a VLAN to get everything working in the first place? It's frustrating as you have proved the box can do what is required, we just can't add the settings to make it so!

Was this ever incorporated into new AVM firmware? Does 06.30 work without modifiction, if not is it possible to modify 06.30 using FBEditor (for 4790)?

Likewise, I never got the hand mods to work, and would like to get my Fritzbox working again. Did AVM ever incorporate DougM's suggested changes?

I really don't know the answer, I had a 7390 working (having used DougM's mods) then I bought a 7490, I saved the settings on the 7390 and restored them to the 7490, I do not know if the modifications were part of the backed up data but my (Plusnet) IPTV worked straight away with the new router.
