I'm new poster to the forums, however have been here many times to find help for other issues i've had.
I have done a fair bit of reading around this one but thought someone might able to help. Unfortunately the info that is currently out there is all over the show and I can't seem to find a config that works.
I have a WNDR3800, running 22118, connected by the GIG port to an unmanaged Netgear GS608 which is then connected to a Humax T1000 IPTV Receiver amongst other devices.
I have disabled the multicast filter on the firewall and have loaded the script below to stop Multicast packets flooding the WLAN.
ebtables -A FORWARD -o "ath0" --pkttype-type multicast -j DROP
ebtables -A OUTPUT -o "ath0" --pkttype-type multicast -j DROP
When I run the command "ebtables -L" the console confirms that these rules are in place.
WLAN still works which is a good sign, but the IPTV box still isn't picking up any IP channels.
Is there something i'm missing? Does DD-WRT work with IPTV?
I've been trying to find out whether IGMP support is built in to the latest builds or not but i can't find detailed info on this either way. I have read somewhere something about it being built in to certain kernels but that goes a bit beyond my current level of knowledge, but always happy to learn!!
Been using DD-WRT as the platform for my router for a few years now and this is the only issue i've really struggled with. I don't want to move to another platform, not even sure another platform would support this function but i don't want to waste time if DD-WRT is capable, which i'm sure it is....
Apologies for the super long first post but hopefully the community can help me learn and understand as it has done for the last few years.
I look forward to discussing this problem further and finding a solution.
I need similar help too.
just replaced my talktalk HG533 Router with a netgear router running dd-wrt. the broadband works perfectly but the iptv is gone. cant find IGMP settings anywhere.
can anyone post some simple solutions for the missing settings please?

I found that igmpproxy in DD-WRT v24-sp2 (which I have) is renamed to igmprt.
So to launch it just type:
This also listed in
Also I found that config file creates at every boot-time and is /tmp/igmpproxy.conf
And enabling/disabling option "Filter Multicast" just starts igmprt with/without that config file.
So solution that I found is to save startup commands with modifying that config file.
