Hi sorry it’s a V6 box 🤦♂️ So I’ve managed to get it working by disconnecting all cables and using WiFi.
There is an Ethernet cable attached to the cable coming into the box which I thought was a dedicated internet link for the box to use. I am guessing this isn’t the case unless the broadband side is also connected to the router?
im currently using modem mode so having this cable connected isn’t going to work. Would be nice to leave the ports open for use when is this mode but at least it’s now connected and working.
Incoming coax carries your TV signal - live channels.
Internet connection for all things online - EPG updates, VOD, software updates etc. Ideally this is Ethernet, but WiFi can work (with additional variables)
There's nothing inherently wrong with modem modem and a V6 - as long as your router doesn't start randomly blocking ports and preventing certain V6 functions from working, there'll be very limited official support if it does.
