Region : UnitedKingdom

Model : TD-W8968

Hardware Version : V1

Firmware Version : 150507

ISP : BT


I have purchased a TP-Link TD-W9980 to replace my Home Hub 5. I have set the modem/router up using the built in profile VDSL_BT and can connect to the internet etc - much more stable than the Home Hub.

Now I was lead to believe (and some posts in other forums do seem to confirm this) that this modem/router combo will also work with YouView and give me access to the additional internet channels, iPlayer etc - this is currently not working! Those that do have this fully working did you have to do anything else in the configuration?

I am running the most recent firmware released - published on 150507. Do I need to downgrade the firmware to get this going? Is anyone on the current firmware level and got full YouView access?

The only thing I can note is that I don't know what the firmware level was when it was purchased - but I set it up using the quick config and then did a firmware update. I guess its possible that I need to restore to factory so that it is at the most recent firmware and set up from scractch again - in case I have carried over a big somewhere along the lines.

The firmware published 141215 does specifically mention YouView working in its release notes so I am hoping it is possible. I have seen mentioned about a beta firmware on the forums here that resolves these issues - but I presume the most recent firmware I already have already includes this?

Comments and help please people! Thanks in advance...

Now resolved - I had to reset the YouView box.

The problem should have been solved.

this is currently not working!
Can you describe or explain in details? All channels or some one cannot be viewed properly?
