    Deco M5 and IPTV

    Model :

    Hardware Version :

    Firmware Version :

    ISP : [/COLOR]

    Hello,

    is there a way to configure/optimize IPTV with the Deco M5? I have problems with my decoder (a lot of lags/freezes and blackscreens), although connection and speeds are excellent with speedtest.

    Thanks in advance.

    Same Question / requirement here, Have my Deco M5 in trial period and and currently IPTV is not stable enough.

    I don't see any settings about the IPTV within the Deco APP. Could that be a speed issue? If the total speed in the app is good and if the IPTV has a stable connection with deco system(good Ethernet cable or strong wifi signal)?

    In fact, it is "almost working", but one issue remains, let' try to describe it. After a random amount of time (10, 30 minutes or one hour), the program I'm watching will freeze completely, and I have to switch to another channel ans switch back to the original one to get my signal back.
    I've tried both default mode (router) and access point, and I have the same behaviour. Another remark, when on router mode, if I touch anything in QoS settings, or if I set high priority on my TV decoder, it will degrade things a lot.
    FYI, my ISP is Orange (France) and I have a gigabit FTTH connection. The DL speed measured on the deco box on which the decoder is connected (by rj45 cat 6 or 7) is about 200/250 Mbits/s, and the HD streams at this ISP require around 10 Mbits/s. Finally, I have purchased a little "wifi extender" for 50 euros on the website of my ISP and I haven't got any issue at all with it, if it can give any clues.

    Another issue : everytime a wifi device disconnects and/or reconnects the network, my TV screen shows pixels/interferences for a few seconds. Annoying.

    The program you were watching was live telecast or some recorded video? Try bypassing the deco and connect directly to the modem/router and test if IPTV works properly or not.

    How about your case, is there any updates? Can you share more detail info with us, like your ISP, what kind of videos your were streaming, etc.. Maybe we can have some discoveries together...

    IPTV is working flawlessly with direct connection. And as I wrote above, I have another wifi system that I bought directly at my ISP, which is also working perfectly. So this is like a problem regarding VLAN support/IGMP snooping, but I can't tell more.
