Yes TV by Fetch: Powerline Adaptor Set Up & Troubleshooting

Follow the steps outlined below to set up your Yes TV by Fetch with a Powerline Adaptor.

Alternatively:

Before you start..
  • Identify a power point near your broadband modem for use with one of the white adaptors
  • Identify a power point near your Yes TV by Fetch set top box for the other white adaptor
  • Make sure both power points are switched off before connecting / disconnecting these or any other electrical device

Using a power board with your adaptors?

  • Where possible, avoid plugging the adaptor directly into a power board as this can affect its performance.

  • The adaptor will not work if plugged directly into a surge-protected power board, instead connect the adapter as shown above
  • If you must connect the adaptor into a (non-surge protected) power board, only use the first power socket that is closest to the power board's cord as shown below

  2. Connect one end of the Ethernet cable to the port labelled Internet at the rear of your set top box

  3. Connect the other end of the Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port at the top of the adaptor

  4. Plug the adaptor into the power point. Do not switch the power point on at this stage

Step 3. Switch your Powerline Adaptors on
  1. Switch each adaptor on at their respective power points

  2. Check that the power and data lights on the white adaptors flash and then show a stable pattern (this may take up to 2 minutes)

  3. The Ethernet light on the adaptors will then turn a solid green, the adaptor connected to your set top box may not establish a stable connection until your Yes TV by Fetch service is on and fully set up
