Re: Multicast config for alternative routers

Hi Bob, I have the 589 but am not seeing what you are:-
:eth iflist
eth_Internet    : Dest: efmif1         
                  Connection State: connected  Retry: 10
                  WAN: Enabled  Administrative MTU: 1500 Operational MTU: 1500
                  Priority Tagging: Disabled
                  PortNr: 1
                  VLAN: default
eth_Internet_VLAN: Dest: eth_Internet   
                  Connection State: connected  Retry: 10
                  WAN: Enabled  Administrative MTU: 1500 Operational MTU: 1500
                  Priority Tagging: Disabled
                  PortNr: 2
                  VLAN: VLAN_Internet

So do I just use eth_Internet instead of eth_PPP ?

Re: Multicast config for alternative routers

Great 'cause I don't really want to have to locate the BT modem again. Got used to only having one box running.
OK done the patch, just waiting for the box now, might be here tomorrow if comments are anything to be going by.
Then have to teach SHMBO how to use it that's going to be the hard bit  Cheesy

Re: Multicast config for alternative routers

I've just made the multicast IPTV stuff work on my openWRT "Barrier Breaker" box.
The only annoying thing is that in order to get the IGMP proxy working (tried igmpproxy and mcproxy) I have had to assign an IP address to the WAN ethernet interface which is connected to the openreach modem.  It appears the ethernet interfaces must have an IP address to bind to.  For the minute I've just given it 10.0.0.1/32 - which works, and theoretically can't get anywhere, and I've set up firewall rules to only allow IGMP and the UDP streams to port 5802 on this interface.  But I wonder what a "proper" router does?

Re: Multicast config for alternative routers

I received a support ticket update today advising that my trial equipment is on the way.
I am running a Netgear WNDR4700 at home and can see an Advanced Setting option for WAN Setup that is currently ticked "Disable IGMP Proxying". I plan on unticking that once the kit arrives and is installed to see if that's all I need to do.

Mike.

Re: Multicast config for alternative routers

I'll add my router to the list:
The TP-Link TL-WDR3600 worked fine, after upgrading the firmware to version V1_130909.
Once upgraded, I checked the "Network -> LAN" settings, where the "IGMP Proxy" setting needs to be enabled.

Re: Multicast config for alternative routers

I can confirm that my D-Link DIR-825 with firmware 2.06EU doesn't work even with multicast enabled in the advanced networking section.

Re: Multicast config for alternative routers

OK just got mine, dropped my ipv6 user and put my normal name in,
However:
I am getting this on the TG589
Quote
TV
Connection Information

Link Status: Disconnected
Last Error Message: No static IPv4 address configured
IPv6 address not configured
IPv4 State: Enabled
IPv6 State: Enabled

I AM on a static ip.
So how to move past this?
EDIT:
updated the Humax box and now have the ip channels but no picture.

Re: Multicast config for alternative routers

Have you put the config in the TG589 for the muticast / IGMP proxy?  It is the first post on this thread.

Re: Multicast config for alternative routers

However:
I asked if I should use eth_Internet or eth_Internet_VLAN and was told the first.
I have just changed to the 2nd and am now seeing some traffic on the TV port where before it was blank.

Re: Multicast config for alternative routers

Any clues as to whether dd-wrt is easily configurable ?
Quite happy to use the supplied 582N and/or my existing TP-Link 841N running dd-wrt

Re: Multicast config for alternative routers

It looks like it is possible - google for dd-wrt igmpproxy.  People using it as far back as 2010.  I prefer openwrt myself so no experience of what is involved.
