The dream: your receiver pipes super fast Internet over HDMI to all devices.
The reality: every device has the cheapest, flakiest Chinese WiFi chip with the worst possible UI imaginable for entering user/pass. The UI doesn't support digits or extended characters.
@fribbledom Don't buy cheap
@fribbledom Ethernet ports would be optimal.
I'd actually really prefer to run just one (HDMI) cable to all my living room devices.
@fribbledom But with Ethernet each device should get more bandwidth and wouldn't need an Ethernet device to be on.
I'm not sure I'm following you here... what exactly do you mean?
@fribbledom Guess I'm just crazy.
They also tend to have major issues with spaces in SSIDs. Even if you're not trying to connect to one.
@fribbledom Ethernet over HDMI is limited to 100 Mbps, so there's that. 802.11n, let alone 802.11ac, wifi is faster.
@fribbledom especially since Ethernet over HDMI is part of the spec it’s just nobody implements it
@fribbledom why not use fiber? 😜
