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)?

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.

Cheers

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