I was looking for a switch to buy to use with my 2 IPTV boxes (and regular Internet). I saw that the TL-SG105 switch (unmanaged) had support for "IGMP snooping" (my IPTV provider doesn't use VLAN). I am not a network expert (I barely know anything about networks to be honest) but I have heard that "IGMP snooping" is a good feature to have if you intend to connect IPTV to the switch... but I have also heard that some IPTV services will get their connection blocked by the switch if "IGMP snooping" is enabled. Is there any truth to this? Can I expect my two IPTV boxes to work with the TL-SG105 switch?
How does IGMP snooping work on an unmanaged switch anyway (I have never seen "IGMP snooping" be advertised by any other unmanaged switch so I am pretty confused)? I was under the impression that IGMP snooping only worked on managed switches. Is there a way to turn off IGMP snooping if it ends up causing issues with my IPTV (since the switch is unmangaed/non-configureable I am guessing that that is not possible)?
Sorry for asking many questions.
