Recently we received feedback that when ER7206/ER605 v1 is used with the Modem Router and Media Receiver provided by Telecom Germany, with IGMPv3 proxy enabled (required by ISP), the IPTV screen will freeze after a normal playback for 10-15 seconds, and error message appears that the bandwidth is not enough.

As a temporary solution, you may install the Beta firmware below to fix the issue.
ER605_V1_1.1.1_Build 20211104 (Beta) ER7206_V1_1.1.1_Build 20211110 (Beta)
Updated on 10 January 2022:
Based on the beta firmware above, the new beta below enables the IGMP V3 by default to solve the problem that switching between IGMP V2 and V3 takes a long time (about 400s).
Note: Please be sure you have read the Beta Test Agreement before proceeding!
Please follow the Upgrade Process below to install the Beta firmware:
1. Enable the IGMP V3 Proxy on ER605/ER7206. 2. Disconnect all other LAN devices, except for the PC that is used to access the web UI of ER605/ER7206. 3. Do NOT run any IGMP related programs such as streaming on this PC, login the ER605/ER7206 and upgrade the beta firmware. 4. After the upgrade completed (ER605/ER7206 will reboot automatically), wait for 10 minutes before you do further operations. 5. Connect Media Receiver and other devices back to ER605/ER7206. 6. Start the TV and enjoy it!
