IPTV and Tomato

    Hi all,

    So BT Vision just launched some Multicast IPTV channels over here in the UK. They don't officially launch until August 1st, but there are some test channels up already, and so far I've had no luck connecting to them.

    I'm using shibby's firmware and I've tried checking both the Enable IGMPproxy and Enable udpxy options but neither seem to help.

    So far, people seem to be struggling getting the multicast streams to work on anything other than the BT provided routers - see http://community.bt.com/t5/YouView-...or-3rd-Party-Routers-may-not-work/td-p/913740 and also http://www.seenit.co.uk/an-alternative-router-to-bts-home-hub-for-use-with-bt-sport/0728716/

    I suppose my question is twofold:

    1 - Should it be enough to just enable the IGMPproxy option?

    2 - If not, and there is additional configuration involved, what exactly would I need to change, and more importantly, how would I find out what settings to use given that BT are notoriously secretive and refuse to support any routers other than their own, so would most likely not be willing/able to provide the required multicast info

    Many thanks in advance!

    I'd appreciate some help with this too. I'm not in the UK but my ISP offers IPTV. I too, have been through all the settings I can find, to enable these streams, but without success ( IGMPproxy, port forwarding etc - also using shibby) For what it's worth, It used to wok when I had Oleg firmware...

    I just googled some manual how to do... "IPTV in tomato"... I followed this instruction but it wasnt working... I checked it twice but without success... so I contacted my friend and he set it properly... I can contact him for a manual and publish it there... because I would like to flash final version of Victek firmware and set IPTV again, so I need it too :D

    If you can provide any additional insight, it would be most appreciated.

    I'm beginning to suspect that one of two things are at play here:

    1) The IPTV options are borked in shibby's
    2) The IPTV options don't support IGMP v3 without additional tweaking

    I guess the first one is easier to rule out - I shall attempt an install of RAF tomato and see if that makes things a bit better.

    I managed to get it working with IGMPproxy disabled but using Udpxy. However, it's not terribly convenient having to manage individual URLs...

    Please let us know how RAF goes.

    Will do - I haven't been able to play with it much lately, but I'll have a go this evening.

    Any chance you can post a step-by-step explaining exactly what you did to get it working with Udpxy?

    Also, somebody with a Billion router got it working following this advice from Billion support:

    I wonder how easy it would be to replicate that method with Tomato.

    I just disabled igmpproxy, enabled uppxy and translated the IPTV address to http:

    where the original upd address for the stream is udp://@ is the address of the router and the udpxy listening port is 4022.

    Unfortunately, I can't get anything else to work.
