Yup. Don't be weird. You want what everyone else has in this case. And CAT-6 and RG-6 are a sure bet!



That's exactly the thing. While a small percentage of residences outside...

I've used D-Link and one of the semi-off-brands, and they are fine. Those things are all pretty cheap and generic these days. I had a 100mbps Ethernet switch go bad on me a few years back, but since...

And it's still really hard to work with, and there's no reason in a residential application for it. Because of the amount of CAT-5e/6 and RG-6 out there, everything for residential use in the future...

First of all, why is Samsung addressing CAT cable? For Ethernet to feed a smart TV, there is no need for more than CAT-5e. CAT-7 is really, really hard to work with, as each pair is shielded...

I have heard from a number of relatively technically inept people that IMAX is too loud, so it's not just us tech/AV snobs. :D

There should be an option for using settings from AVS and then screwing around with them. :D That's what I've done, although my Shrap Quattron TV seems to be nearly impossible to get accurate color...

HUH? There is no way to convert HDMI to Ethernet, except for the JustAddPower system, which requires hardwired gigabit ethernet to function, and is ill-suited for home use anyways.

ROFL.



Listen to jauntor. He knows what he's talking about. There is NO reason that a normal residential setup needs STP. You should use UTP and terminated your own.

WTF? How would you run HDMI over powerline? You talk about HDMI, and then you start talking about LAN adapters. Your post is disjointed and parts of it make no sense at all. Somehow HDMI magically...

They have the same issues that cable/satellite channels do, as 80% of their viewers, and virtually 100% of the viewers who will be early adopters of 4K TV are getting their local channels through...

Except that they don't have the bandwidth to do it with linear broadcast, at least for now. With SDV, it would be possible on cable, but if Comcast gobbles up TWC and doesn't want to do SDV, then...

The EDGE Green has a 3D mode, but it doesn't do any processing when the 3D mode is enabled. I've sent 3D video to my Sharp LE8470U while sending audio to my AVR, so I would think it would work with a...

They do when there's enough bandwidth to do so, which there often isn't to stuff all the garbage that the OTA broadcasters and cable providers want to. 1080i and 720p use basically the same...

Yeah, that's basically right, it's just not actually Ethernet at that point, it's just CAT-5/6 cable. Ethernet is something ELSE you could run over a CAT-5/6 cable.



No. The posts above are...

At least for kids movies, there are a lot of built-in DVD players in cars, and portable ones. That market seems to drive the "combo pack" sales.
