Question about Apple iMac G4 Desktop

Jerky / stopmotion display on downloaded videos:

Has this something to do with the speed of delivery from my BT Home HUB, or have I just got too much stuff on my hard drive slowing everything down?

As time progresses, suppliers of online videos supply more resolution, and Apple updates your computer with QuickTime updates that take a lot more processing power. As a result, pretty much everybody who owns a G3 or G4 Mac now sees the same behavior you are seeing. The choppiness is do to you overtaxing your processor. It has nothing to do with your disk storage, or the speed of your router. The only good accommodation is to hit the pause control until the video has downloaded entirely -- once the networking code is no longer chugging, at least your computer can devote as much processor as it has to showing you the actual movie.

    I have new information.


    This slowdown occurs on PowerPC Macs when watching movies in Windows formats (mostly WMV or AVI). A recent upgrade to Flip4Mac (the tool that allows Quicktime Player to play Windows-format videos) is the culprit, as it substituted very inefficient Silverlight code on PPCs for the efficient code in earlier versions.


    The solution is to downrev Flip4Mac. Use the uninstaller tool in Applications/Flip4Mac. Then download version 2.2.1.11 of Flip4Mac from:

    http://www.telestream.net/download-files...


    and run the installer. This will replace the efficient code and greatly smooth your movie viewing. If Flip4Mac urges you to upgrade back to the newer version, ignore it.

Hi. We are trying to setup a phillips tv through a bt vision box please


  1. A TV aerial feed - The BT Vision box gets its digital TV signals over-the-air, so needs a TV aerial. This needs to be connected to the aerial input socket on the V-Box. There is an output RF aerial socket to allow you to connect an aerial feed to a TV if required.
  2. SCART lead - You need to make a connection from the Vision+ box to the TV using a SCART lead. If you have a HD TV set, you can also connect via an HDMI lead (not supplied).
  3. Connection to Broadband - You'll need to connect from the BT Vision+ box to a BT Broadband connection. This is done using the BT Home Hub. The Home Hub is the Broadband router supplied by BT, and it connects into to your phone line to give you Internet access-The most common way to make the connection, is to connect an Ethernet (networking) cable from the BT Vision+ box to one of the Ethernet ports on the Home Hub. If you can't make a direct connecting to the Home Hub, you can use powerline adapters to make the connection. The self-install kit includes two Powerline adapters to allow you to connect to the Home Hub if it's in a different room to the BT Vision+ Box.
  4. The BT Vision v-box has an additional scart socket, which can be connected to a video or dvd recorder.

You can download the TNA analyzer to test ports. Or your router is not giving dhcp to the phone. You can try to statically assign an IP address to. The phone.

How do I access the internet using a BT home hub set up for wireless operation, without having to go through BTfon


Hi Graham
This should be fairly straight forward.
Your BT Home hub should be transmitting 2 signals. One called BTfon and another called something like BTHomeHub2-PGD3.
The second is what your computer should be connecting to to access the internet. If you look at the back of your home hub you will see 4 rows of numbers/text.
One should say SSID and have have the same ending as the transmitter that your computer should be seeing. Underneath that it should say WEP code or WPA. (or something similar) What follows is the password you need to enter to access that home hub's internet transmitter. The BTfon thing is for the telephone that comes with some versions of the hub - it's not for the computer.

My printer has stopped communicating with our BT home hub It was OK and the security code is correct it just cannot establish a connection. I tried it with the previous Netgear wi fi and it connects just...


you can also change the BT home hub 2.0(black)encryption type to WEP type. all you need to do is follow the steps to change the type of encryption to WEP.

  • connect a computer using the ethernet cable to the hub(its the black cable with yellow leads).
  • open an internet explorer or anyother browser, in the address bar just type 192.168.1.254.
  • you will be getting the BT home hub manager page with please reset your password, asking for three credentials.
  • in the first bar enter the default admin password or the admin password which is found in the wireless card or at the back of the home hub in the label. in the second and third bars enter the password of your own, something like admin1.
  • you will be getting another page coming with four options at the top (home, services, settings and troubleshooting).
  • click on settings, and below troubleshooting in the blue bar itself , you will see advanced settings. click on it.
  • then click on continue to advanced settings, now below home in the blue bar itself, click on wireless.
  • after you do that, you will see two options called as configuration and security. click on security. there you will see the option to change the wireless encryption to WEP.after changing the type to WEP, type the same password again in the section for password and click on apply to save changes.
  • check whether your printer is connecting to your home hub after that,

Iv got a BT home hub 2 cant get conections for utorrent even though opened firewalls


There are ISPs that block utorrent. I found this explanation of how to do port forwarding on the BT home hub, though: http://portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/BT/BTHomeHub/Utorrent.htm
So, all I can suggest is to open the ports on your home hub as suggested above and to connect your computer straight to your home hub rather than to your CWR-854 (unless you actually have no such router and just picked that to ask the question under).
It is possible that someone has decided that you should not use torrents (they slow down everyone because they actually have the nerve to use the internet) and they are associated with thieves. Not to mention that there are tons of legit uses for them,
This could be someone in your ISP or your house. So do you have access to everything? You can poke around with telnet - can you access the ports on the other systems that utorrent accesses to make itself part of the network of systems that are downloading and sharing the torrent?
But if one knows the ports it is easy to block torrent.
If you have multiple routers that do nat, the home hub has to forward to your router, not to your system. So if your router is 192.168.3.12 and your system is 192.168.5.6, the BT home hub has to forward to the port on your router, on 192.168.3.12 , and your router has to forward to your system on 192.168.5.6. If the home hub tries to forward directly to your system (if you have multiple routers, which you might have because of the way you asked your question) then it won't work since your router hides 192.168.5.6.

Iphone 3G-S will not connnect to BT Home Hub 2.0


First, Can your 3GS connect on ant other Wi-Fi? If so the issue is specific to configuration on either iPhone or BT Home Hub.
Second, Does BT Home Hub configured for any kind of mac-address security? Check that, if it does either remove it or add the iphone mac-address, you can find the iphone mac address under network setting.
Third, Does Home Hub have limit on number of devices that can connect to it, some do. check that and make sure that you increase the limit or just remove the restriction altogether.
Fourth, IS BT Home Hub Wep enabled? If so the password/key you are entring on your iPhone must be exactlythe same. Or just remove the wep encryption to see if your iphone 3GS can connect.
Fifth, If your old 3G is able to connect to your BT Home Hub, then just make sure you are not FAT fingering the keys and entering a different key.

Ive got a 40gb ps3 and a bt home hub wireless router how do i connect ps3 to computer ps ps3 is upstairs and pc downstairs


look on the back of your home hub. there should be a Wireless Key in a Grey box. (BT Home Hub wireless settings)

note the wireless key.

go to your ps3. and turn it on log on ect. go to settings and down to network settings (right at bottom).

(Im not sure of the next section because im currently on a network but it should be an option to find network).

anyway you search for networks. should find your home hub.

keep going right untill you have to enter any settings. and write your WEP Key (Not WKA). (wireless key from back of router).

Xbox360 connection


Yes, you are able to connect your 360 using a hardwired connection. In fact, it is even faster that way!

Your BT Home Hub has two ethernet jacks on it, for use with whatever devices you wish to connect to the internet (in this case, your 360). Simply plug your 360's ethernet cable into the jack, and voila! You can now access Live. However, if you wish to host games over live, you may need to open up certain ports for Live to use.

The ports are listed at: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/908874

A manual for using and setting up your BT Home Hub is at:
