Dear,

 

I do have 2 deco M5 units, in a daisy chain configuration. Both units are connected by a LAN cable, in order to ensure ethernet can be used as a backhaul. 

I do have a TV located close to my slave unit and I have the IPtv receiver (set-top-box) connected with a LAN cable to the second port on the slave unit.

 

In order to get my TV signal right, I did activate the IPtv bridge mode. According to the TP-link support article, when IPTV is configured, the IPTV service only takes effect on the other Ethernet port of the main Deco. Other wired network clients or switches won’t have internet access when connected to this Ethernet port on the main Deco.

 

I have 2 questions:

1. Is the ethernet connection still being used a backhaul once I do activate the IPtv bridge mode?

2. Is there a way to activate IPtv on the slave unit?

 

 

My goal is to get the IPtv working well, while ensuring the ethernet connection between both my M5 devices is still being used as backhaul. 

ISP====Deco M5======Deco M5====IPTV

 

Thanks for any suggestions!

Hello,

 

When IPTV is configured on the Deco app, the IPTV service only takes effect on the other Ethernet port of the main Deco, where you connect your IPTV device such as a set-top-box. Other wired network clients or switches won’t have internet access when connected to this Ethernet port on the main Deco. However, you can still connect them to the Ethernet ports of the slave Deco units to get internet access.

 

Good day.

Please leave me a message if I haven't seen your post and your issue is quite urgent!
