Re: Fritz 7390 Multicast settings for BT YouView Extra Chann

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.


So can you confirm that BT Sport channels and ESPN and AMC which use multicast are working through the 7490

I can confirm that all my subscribed multicast channels, including BT Sport1 (just tuned to that one to check, currently showing WTA Miami open tennis) are working perfectly.
What I don't know is whether copying my old settings from the 7390 played any part or if it would have 'just worked' anyway.

Sorry for the late reply. Thought I had posted it but couldn't have.

Any way, it must have been the copying of the settings over from the 7390 to the 7490.
At the mo, on my BT line my, 7490 does not allow any of my subscribed multicast channels through even though AVM state
The FRITZ!Box supports IGMP v2 and v3 and multicast

Hi there

I tried the FritzBox 7490 with the latest firmware and it didn't help the situation. I know that it says is does work with Multicast, but not in the same way that BT Openreach have implemented it.

In order to get it to work, you can use the settings above and try and create a new virtual interface that is not encapsulated in the same way.

I can confirm that with some messing around, I managed to download the tool, and get it to use the English files for the interface. Once I had that, I then implemented the changes above and multicast channels all work.

So it is possible, but it certainly isn't clean. smile

It would be much nicer if Fritz made the change at their end for BT customers, but I have asked them and they were not that responsive.

If I can work out how to remove ALL personal settings etc. I'll see if it's possible to save the config with 'just' the multicast bits and maybe upload that somewhere for others to use.

*Unfortunately I can't promise a timescale on this due to other commitments.

That would certainly help someone like me so is appreciated.
I can get around the Sports channels for now by streaming from the laptop via Chromecast. Better than nothing.

Thanks, tried with the password and it adds the new config file but even after a restart still no subscribed BT sports even though I have viewed them with a Draytek 2860. frown
