Motors tv channel 240 not working

Hello there.
Does anybody know how to get a freeview box to stream through a router.
The box is a Philips HDTP8530/05 freeview top box and I'm trying to get it to stream a specific channel through my router.
The router is a Technicolor TG582n from plusnet (preconfigured).
The channel I'm after is Motors TV 240. 
It requires both a freeview aerial and an internet connection to play.
I am able to get the iPlayer feature working on it, so I'm thinking it may have access to the internet but are not 100% sure that's all I need.
And if that is the case then it does not support the channel I'm trying to play so it's no bloody good.
Any help greatly appreciated.
Thanks

Unfortunately your STB is not compatible with the MHEG streaming channels.  There's a list here:
