Re: Plusnet TV in another room

Seems plusnet moderators and staff are ignoring all the questions about additional channels....
In regards of multiroom / boxes, they will work with youview / on demand catchup, but the IPTV aspect will not.......
My router is the TP-LINK 9980, which supports multicast proxying to all LAN ports, so it should work, BUT from what I understand plusnet haven't setup the mechanism to identify and authenticate multiple boxes from a single IP currently, I spoke to them on the phone and they said it was currently being "trialled"
What I find interesting is that BT are providing these services first, then plusnet are getting them months / years later, having to do their own testing etc (Allegedly) when in reality, they know it works cause it works for BT and the system is probably the same... so just get on with it!

Moderators are customers like yourself. There have been various threads about multi-rooms and PlusNet don't currently offer it; see here and here for example.
