Thanks Lexden. Re your L and G G470 failing, I have an L and G E470 and the IHD has started boot looping. Octopus haven’t gotten back to me as yet but Googling it comes back with a possible firmware update failure... is your problem similar?SMETS2 meters do not work with any supplier: they connect to The Data Communications Company (Capita). All suppliers are required to be registered with The DCC; however, a large number have quote operational reasons unquote as to why they cannot accept smart meter data. You will have to ask your chosen supplier which category they are in.
Looking at this blog, I suspect that you will have to send SO manual meter readings.
One of the possible downsides of switching with a smart meter that doesn’t work is that their support will be limited. For example, my L and G G470 SMETS2 has failed after a firmware update. I am not sure that SO would know if I was one of their customers.
