I have set-up IGMP-proxy (RB2011UAS) for viewing our ISP-s IPTV with my 2 set-top boxes. Everything works OK when I use bridge interface as Querier. Thats is also no problem, but it's bad, if I want to see network overall traffic .. all interfaces, that are members of the bridge, showing high multicast traffic, my 5 port switch is blinking like crazy and RB-s LCD is showing straight array of yellow boxes for every interface .
One IPTV client is my Samsung SmartTV with built in software based IPTV client, and I want also internet and local DLNA streaming to that TV (because that, I'm using IGMP-proxy).
Then I came out with an idea, that I can add the 3 ether ports, connected my IPTV clients, to IGMP-proxy instead of LAN bridge and then other network devices are no more affected to multicast stream.
But that is not working somehow... when I add bridge, then IGMP-Proxy shows as Source IP-address my ether2 IP (192.168.x.254) but when I add separate interfaces (ether3, ether4 and ether8 in my setup) then is there no Source IP-address (0.0.0.0) and IGMP-Proxy is not working. Adding an address to interfaces, changes also nothing.
IGMP Snooping were ideal solution, but as I understand, is that not implemented.
Question is .. am I doing something wrong, or is using a bridge only working solution with IGMP-proxy?
