Have another machine but will need another network card; not the issue though I get similar issues on base metal.

I'm trying to figure out whether VFTV uses VLANs or anything as is done with similar IPTV setups overseas.

EDIT: Besides I have my soldering iron out already and am in the process of butchering by TP-Link switch...much more fun!

Nothing special. Just multicast. No separate VLANS.

Why do the test streams / STB consume bandwidth when routed through pfSense (VM) or Windows (bare metal) but not HG659 (what causes this traffic to be segregated)?

Or use the router it came with and save all the hassle. ;-)

Pondering here:

Could it be that the STB (or HG659) is applying a QoS tag, i.e. is VF over provisioning (i.e. say 300Mbps instead of 200/250Mbps or whatever it is), but set a particular tag to have say 30% of the total bandwidth, with anything untagged no more than 70% of the provisioned speed?  The multicast traffic going down the non-QoS/DSCP tagged route is capping the maximum speed of general traffic.

It's just a random thought, I have no experience with Vodafone's fibre deployment..

Ill get some Mb/s from outram and shift them to your connection.

Im a little lost on how your connection has gone.
Can you download cisco packet tracer and make a map of your network with everything in terms of the TV.

Vodafone provision like this: 200Mb/s (download) 50Mb/s (Upload) 72Mb/s (Multicast for Vodafone TV)
