Unfortunately Netgear have withdrawn their latest firmware releases 1.05..XX and and 1.06..XX. As far as I know the latest firmware on their site does not support Plusnet/BT IPTV. However there is a beta 1.0.6.40 available. You can download it from my dropbox if you wish, but remember it's beta!

Click on  "Advanced"->"Setup"->"WAN Setup"
Then deselect "Disable IGMP Proxying" and tick "Support British Telecom[BT} IGMP Proxying"

Can anyone post a screenshot of the WAN setup page showing this 'BT IGMP' field?

I have an R6400 which I think needs a similar firmware upgrade to support YouView. Having a screenshot would help me persuade Netgear support that their engineers already have a solution.
