Every second HDMI cable in store is being advertised with "High Speed Ethernet Support" on its packaging.

... and yet I have never-ever seen a single device that makes use of that feature. Have you?

@fribbledom I feel like there are a lot that should, but none do... I bet it's unreasonably expensive to implement (vs. just putting in an Ethernet port or wifi adapter?)



I guess the standard chips are a lot cheaper indeed. But it also sounds like a hen-and-egg problem to me. If TVs supported it more widely, I'd imagine at least gaming consoles might support it.
