How to efficiently get internet to all devices?
I'm setting up a sony str-za5000es. The instructions and diagram don't offer much help, not that I would know.
The reciever has 8 ethernet ports, if I connect my modem/router will it supply internet to connected devices or does it just transmit the reciever data? I also read the hdmi has the capability of ethernet. I'm trying to limit unnecessary wires. Currently I have one cable from the router to my device of choice and the rest are wireless. So my question is about supplying wired internet to all devices.
Can I just connect everything to the reciever ports? Do I move the modem and connect everything to that? Do I leave the modem and get an ethernet switch? Do I even need ethernet in addition to hdmi?
Here's what I'm connecting to the reciever.
Sony a8f 65" tv
Sony 4k player x800m2
