Thank you so much for your reply! I really appreciate the input.
However, I just want to clarify how everything is connected, so I'm sure I understand it. Are you connecting your Denon, PS3 and XBox to the 8-port switch -- as well as the bridge? And then the bridge -- via the switch -- services all three devices?
And the switch itself is not connected via cabling to a PC, because the bridge makes it wireless. Is that right?
And then the switch allows you also to connect your laptop, which, I assume, makes it easier to download firmware updates. (Is your laptop Internet connection wireless, too, or is it connected via cable to your router? My laptop connects to the Internet wirelessly, but if I'm understnading your post correctly, I'm assuming if I hook the laptop up to the switcher, the Internet connection would pretty much resemble a wired connection?)
Thanks for clarifying all this for me. I'm a bit more savvy when it comes to HT equipment than I am with computers.
