My two Optik 4K boxes are hardwired to gigabit Ethernet. Great internet speed confirmed. After 5-10 seconds, the video freezes and an error screen pops up “Television Signal Has Been Lost”. If I change the channel the video comes back for a few seconds, then the error screen returns.
I power cycled both Optik 4K boxes and problem persists.
Unless your router supports multicasting it won’t work for Optik TV. Your options are use the Telus supplied router/modem for Optik TV. Or purchase a router that supports multicasting. It’s then as easy as enabling it.
My router and managed switches are Araknis which all support multicasting. However, there are many multicast related settings that seem to be ISP specific. Could you or anyone else point me to these specific multicast settings that Telus requires ?
If all my Telus Optik boxes are hard wired and setup to multicast, do all they all need to be on a separate VLAN?
I recently got a PVR 4K and a separated 4k unit. I had no issues just connected both through an unmanaged netgear switch. Make sure the cabling are good. For me i got some issues the first day for few minutes remplazed a network path cable all good.
