I never use a direct video connection to the HTPC for watching TV. My video card is only used for software maintenance tasks on the HTPC monitor.
This is much easier and cheaper than HDMI over Cat 6.

So my question to you is, do the extenders take long to startup WMC? I mean do you have to a wait before the WMC is responsive to perform any actions?
My setup is a central Ceton based HTPC windows 8 (but before it was window 7 and still had the same issue), tunning adapter (obviously) and two xbox360's are connecting to the HTPC via GIGABIT ethernet. WMC works fine running from the HTPC, but when started from the xbox360, it shows the WMC screen but it freezes for at least 30 seconds to a minute, before it becomes responsive, to browse the menu. Runs just fine after that.
My other problem, is that now that the I upgraded to windows 8, the extenders fail to load WMC, if the HTPC isn't running WMC. O_o? It literally doesn't connect until start WMC on the HTPC.....
Anybody experiencing the same issues? Anybody has any ideas on what to do, to improve WMC startup time on the extenders?
