Some Correction 

 

Hello   @riahc4 

Thank you for asking, powerline devices supports IGMP Protocol as spec here  , it just transfers the multicast data to the network client and does not requires to configurre IGMP snooping.

I have a good understanding of basic networking, vlans, etc. I have a very simple setup with an ISP modem/router hg8245h, unifi Switch and 2 AP Lite.

I have 3 IPTVs on the network. When I turned on igmp snooping in the switch, the cable went down and after checking some logs, the packets were getting discarded of some sort. I know what igmp does and it's supposed to be great for video and streaming, basically multicast.

Had this happened to someone, because unifi support is not much help really.

Hello   @riahc4 

Powerline devices support IGMP Protocol ( check spec here for details) can pass Multicast traffic to the network clients, and you do not need to set up IGMP snooping on the powerline device.  

When router -- Powerline A___Powerline B --TV box (IPTV) --TV, you should be able to use IPTV service without extra settings on the powerline units. 

 

If you have any questions, can I know your network map showing how is your powerline device is connected,

When router--TV box, can you use IPTV service?
