Bell FibeTV - IPTV issues with Asus Router in "bridge"

Hi Folks, trying to get both Internet & IPTV working with Asus router from Bell Hub 2000 and need some help with my current topology setup

* Setup Asus router with PPPOE & same Bell b1 username/password = OK

* In my Asus router, under LAN/IPTV Menu, I have set VLAN=35 for Internet & VLAN=36 for IPTV. This seems to work for a lot of folks, but not for me (no internet, no IPTV)

* The only configuration that works for both Internet & IPTV is setting "Select ISP Profile = NONE" and "Choose IPTV STB Port = LAN 4", but that lets the Bell HUB 2000 pass its IP through the Asus LAN to my internal one room (Room 2) would get connected to (Asus), while the other room (Room 1) would get connected to (Bell)...and I need both rooms to be on the same Asus network, with both Internet & IPTV working.

I was thinking about replacing the 1GB switches with manages switches to enable Trunked VLANs, but I was hoping this could be resolved via configuration withing the Asus router, as the Bell Hub 2000 successfully can output both Internet & IPTV protocols from the same Bell LAN, through any one of the 1 GB switch.

Bottom line, VLAN 35 & 36 don't work, I can get both Internet & IPTV to work, but over 2 separate networks, instead of which is what I'm aiming for (all other devices such as WiFi & VOIP work)

After 1 week of troubleshooting, I'm at a complete lost...any help would be greatly appreciated.
