Smart DNS & ITV hub


Question

I have with the help of this forum been able to get my smart DNS working and can no watch streaming from the BBCi player, and  All4 however I cannot get the ITV hub to work, it loads the program I want to watch but then reverts to a screen saying

'Where is my show etc' and it doesnt play

I do not understand why ITV hub will not work yet the BBCi player and All4 and Both work

My5 also does not work but I get the error message you must be in the UK to view this content

The company that supplied my router informed me that no other router would work on their system but i am not sure this is correct but I do not want to purchase a new Sabia technology router only to find it actually does not work with my internet providers system.

I am not sure what to do now

Yes i understand i dont know which isp you use or

which country you are in but normally on a isp router

you have 4 internet ports as i have i use one for my sabai

router, if your isp router only has one internet port then

you can put the router in bridge mode then you just cable

to your own  new router.

By the way what kind of speed do you have on your broadband.

Just post if you need any advice.

I use smart DNS and had a lot of problems as I live in a different country. I solved it by switching the location to London a switched the auto time setting to off. I get all UK terrestrial channels  np problem and 1 advantage was that the local channels that normally broadcast English language programs in a dubbed format are suddenly in English. I use Asus router with Merlin software installed.

I live in Spain and my tv has an inbuilt sat receiver which is linked via our satellite dish and I have always got the UK terrestrial channels but not ITV hub, I use an iptv subscription to receive other channels for watching Sport and Movies and my router is a Huawei HS8456 and have a subscription to Nordvpn but cannot connect Nord to my router

I'm in Spain also but can't get terrestrial tv via satellite so also use iptv. I had no problems until IP provider changed his system. I had to change my router and the cheapest option was ASUS and install Merlin, which was really straightforward. I was using a kodi box but then changed TV to an LG. I had problems as I set it initially for Spain and then found I couldn't get any UK terrestrial. I eventually found out that by putting the location as UK and the time as I said it all worked. I use videophone and have smartDNS in the router but can add a VPN to my PC as needed. I have never had to use one on the TV.

Just to explain what a Sabai vpn router can do 

if it is on a UK openvpn setup this will then give

you a UK ip addresse which will transmit to your

TV, PC, Apple tv box,Tablet,Phone,via wifi

or cable, with this you can see all UK apps

The best router from Sabai is a Netgear R7000

price is $ 349 this will give you a speed of about

35 mbt fine for HD video.

      Hi, 
       
      I was tying to change the settings on our LG TV to enable it for HD channel reception. We found instructions on the net to configure the "area option" in the hidden menu, however, they did not work. So, we thought that we need to change the country group to be able to receive the HD channels. Although we could not change the "country group code" from 20 to an arbitrary number, we change it to 10. After that, we have not been able to change it anymore. It is struck there. I know this is ridiculous, but an LG TV expert who is working in LG customer services told us that I could not change it either and we need to replace the IC. I shocked why with a simple change in one of the TV parameters, everything is got complicated. 
       
      In details, here is the picture of the parameters currently set on the LG TV with the model number of 49LH549V-TD: 
       

       
      Please tell me why I could not set the "country group code" to 20 once again? It is gray meaning that is unchangeable. Any ideas will be appreciated.
       
      Best regards 
      Alizadeh

      Since this update the Apple TV 4K can no longer connect to Dolby via HDMI.  Immediately prior to this update - it worked.
      Now, if you attempot to connect and set it to Dolby - the screen flashes the Apple TV screen on and off - it can't stabilze.
      This happened immdeiately after the update.  
      Can I revert back to the prior software?  Or, can you send me a version that does not have this issue.

      After recent update my browser changed, now, it looks better and fluid but control play and pause buttons don't work in browser video player anymore.

      I just got a new TV (43UN7000PUB) and can’t get HomeKit to work properly.  It works fine when the TV is on but won’t work when the TV is off.
      I have seen several threads on this and done some research but did not find a resolution.
      I read several threads that blamed it on the Magic Remote and Bluetooth.  This TV does not have the Magic Remote so I think that can be ruled out.
      One thread pointed out that when the TV is off it loses it’s LAN connection and it’s WI-FI connection and said that could be the problem.  I can confirm this is true with mine as well.  This argument makes perfect sense to me as all connections would be lost when the TV is off.  
      If anyone can help I’d surely appreciate it.
      One thread said the problem was fixed with a FW update.  But that was with a different model and a different FW than mine.  As I recall from memory it was something like FW xx.35.10 and it was a 55” or 65” TV.  My firmware says it is current with version 3.21.36.
      Maybe a moderator could confirm the firmware fix already exists for this issue.  If so, could you please see that it gets pushed out to all HomeKit TVs instead of just that single model?
      Thanks in advance for any help or comments.

      Hi,
      Is there an app or a way to enhanced safety mode that I can prevent children from using TV after midnight?
      Thanks for help.
