Would like to add that I have a pc also connected to the almond+, it works perfectly.
Its just the TV that does not want to play ball.
Its either connected or not, some apps it is...........some its not and insists on a network check even though its streamed a movie across the network or watched catchup tv via Channel 5 on demand.
It even reports it has a valid IP address which it clearly has, yet on the network test it stops at the point from tv to router.
Any help or suggestions would be helpful.
I have an irritating issue which is preventing me using the tv as it was intended. I have the following set up.
Samsung TV wired via CAT5 to an ethernet bridge (almond+) which in turn is linked to my Homehub5 from BT.
The tv will not recognise that it is connected to the network.
Opening the following apps, Iplayer, Netflix and Amazon instant and the TV says its not connected and fails its own network test.
Whilst opening the following Apps , Plex, Web Browser, ITV Player and Channel 5 on demand. It works fine.
This is highly infuriating as I have it connected in this way so I can stream 1080p without issue. ( which I can ) provided it is not in the BAD list.
This makes no sense at all. If I connect it straight to the Homehub 5 via wireless it does not have this issue.
How can this be resolved, tried changing DNS etc etc.
