TP Link powerlines and switch

Hi all,
Will the Plusnet TV, YouView service work with compatible router and TP link adapters and TP link switch.

Re: TP Link powerlines and switch

No idea about the PL adaptors but switches are no problem. Mine is connected via 2 switches:
Router->Gib switch->5 port 100Mb switch->YV box
I think they need to be OVER 100Mb PL adaptors but other than that ....

Excellent news about powerline adapters.  Does the switch need to support multicast or is that just the router? As I don't think that switch supports it.

Just the router, the switch doesn't care what the traffic is, unless you spend ££££'s on a managed one.
