Asus RT-AC87U Router IPTV router + BT TV boxes work with plusnet TV

IPTV compliant - Asus RT-AC87U Router (£160 ish)
For those that want IPTV with Plusnet or BT but want a basic NAS for Kodi in addition and a router that will support gaming and all manner of streaming this router is all singing all dancing beast. I had a Netgear R7000 which worked too with third party  firmware but soon became bricked! This unit has been going strong for a few weeks and IPTV has played back well. Unit has 4 gig ports not the 100mb ones you get the plusnet net free router. I highly recommend though I know its expensive. Good for houses that need strong wifi signals too.
Go to admin settings and change the following settings:
Under Lan go to the IPTV tab and simply enable multicast routing and Enable efficient multicast forwarding
Disable under WAN setting Enable VPN + DHCP Connection select no instead of yes

It may also interest some users that the BTTV boxes work with Plusnet Youview I assume the 4K will work but just tested the BT one and got Plusnet TV no issue.
