Hi guys, looking for some advice or pointers. I have a superhub 2 from virgin media, which I use as modem, i have this connected up to a tplink archer c9 v2 router. Problem I have is I cant connect to any iptv apps via my Sony bravia tv ( ss iptv or ottplayer) or my lg smart tv ( ssiptv or smart.tv). I have this problem whether I run my superhub in router mode or modem mode. Everything was working fine up until I had to move my router set up from one side of the room to the other. My TV upstairs runs via homeplugs plugged into the archer c9. The apps in question load up the iptv menus such as sly sports 1 etc but just wont connect.
I also can't connect to any iptv app through WiFi on my phone, though when I switch off the WiFi it connects through my 3 data and plays no problem. After 4 days of switching around putting vpn on etc it still wouldn't connect. I spoke to broadband team at virgin and they reassured me that nothing was being blocked there end, ip address etc. I then found a old belkin router so attached that to the modem and changed the output and type on my iptv line from m3u8 to mpeg.ts and suddenly it began to work, which made me think it was the ip address of the archer that was the problem.
To rule this out I left the lines as mpeg.ts and changed back to the archer c9, but not to my surprise the lines wouldn't connect again. Does any one have any ideas or advice on what I could do to work around this. I am not very clued up on router configurations and changing ip address etc etc. But this is diving me insane :) ps lines have been tested in friends apps and work fine.
