SBG3500-N bridge mode/VLAN 4 IPTV

I have a SBG-3500-N with the most recent firmware. This is connected on a bonding VDSL line from the dutch provider xs4all.

Xs4all deliveres their triple play services through VLANS and uses VLAN 6 for internet and VLAN 4 for IPTV (VOIP is not relevant).

I can get the internet working without any issues. However the TV on VLAN 4 i can't get to bridge to a LAN port.

I have tried creating a additional WAN interface with VLAN 4 tagged and then creating a LAN VLAN 4 tagged and untagged (i tried both) to LAN port 4.

Nothing what i try will result in the TV settopbox getting a valid IP address from the IPTV platform on VLAN 4.

I wondering what i am missing here because i have had this working with different hardware in the past. Unfortunately this zyxel is one of the few that supports bonding so i would like to get it working on this.

Any input/help would be greatly appreciated.

    As your scenario,
    It seems the SBG3500 does not support  triple play services......

    Well it does work with the additional WAN interface setup as bridge on the right VLAN. I get to watch tv when i plug the Settopbox into the zyxel WAN port.

    Now what doesn't work is to confine the vlan 4 (because this is heavy multicast) to one  LAN port and transfer the traffic to the next switch.

    I have tried creating a LAN interface group for vlan 4 and set for example port 4 to tagged. Then on the next switch zyxel port 4 is connected to port 2 for example. Set that port to tag vlan 4.
    Then create a access port untagged to connect the STB to in this example port 8.

    But i don't get a IP from the IPTV platform. But the TV signal including all functionality like live pausing recording etc. is working when a STB is connected straight to the SBG.
