IPC6023 Error on BT TV Internet Channels

Read this if you use an ASUS 3rd party router (i.e. not the BT HomeHub) and, you are receiving the IPC6023 error on BT TV when trying to watch internet channels. Funny thing is, your BT Player works fine and so does apps like BBC iPlayer.

I’ve come across a solution that worked for me from one of the posts in the BT Community site. It took me ages to find so hopefully you find this specific post easily! There are lots of posts out there that mentions if you are using Powerline or not, I am using Powerline adapters and I got my internet channels working.

I’ve got an ASUS DSL-AC68U router and there are a couple of settings within the admin pages that I turned on to make it work.

Enable multicast routing (IGMP Proxy) – ENABLE
Enable efficient multicast forwarding (IGMP Snooping) – ENABLE

Leave the other settings as below.

ASUS-AC68U Multicast

As soon as the settings were applied, I tried the BT internet channel  and it worked!

Nespresso Lattissima Plus Espresso Coffee Machine

Quick post about my new coffee machine we bought, the Nespresso Lattissima Plus. We already own an espresso machine but it’s not ideal to use in the morning before you go to work, there is just too much cleaning involved. Hence why we bought a pod type one. It’s quick to make the coffee – makes one within 2 minutes from pressing the on button. This model EN521.R has four coffee modes –  espresso, lungo (basically a long coffee) , latte and cappuccino. The milk unit can be removed and stowed in the fridge, so your milk is not wasted. It’s recommended that you run the 10 second clean cycle before you stow the milk unit into the fridge.

I’ve taken a measurement here if you want to buy your own latte glasses,  14.3 cm max height without having to tilt the glass. It does not fit the traditional ones we had,  we ended up having to buy some shorter ones. You can customise the amount of milk the latte and cappuccino options dispenses, the default latte setting will fill a 250ml glass to the brim.
