hi, how does this work and i have seen it advertised talking about IP-TV and video on demand could i connect up my TV that easaily? (i have a pana th 37px80)..........seems a bit easy to me
Plug one box into the wall near your PC/Modem. Attach PC/Modem/Switch/etc to box using ethernet.
Plug in the other box wherever you want it (you can move it if you like). Attach remote device to box using ethernet.
Mine worked OK....I just upgraded to a fully wired gigabit network.
Audiophiles suggest that it will add noise to your mains, reducing sound/picture quality of your AV/HiFi. I don't dispute that. The scale of the impact? Don't know. I didn't notice it.
My useful(?) What HiFi Forum threads can be found here.
My friend installed it and uninstalled it immediately - played havoc with his hifi, phono stage in particular.

You could get just the same results by plugging in an old fridge with a really shot compressor next to your system.

There's an interesting post by a Linn engineer on their forums (discussing the use of power plug internet and their Klimax DS) who reckons that it should have no effect on the sound quality. If you can afford to suck it and see, why not have a go and see if it is noticeable to you?

Y'see Linn has come a long way since Ivor wouldn't even countenance having a TV, a digital watch or - at one show - the flashgun on my camera in the room because it would ruin the sound of the system...
In those days it had to be Linn's own mains cables, interconnects and speaker cable. If they'd had remotes they'd probably have insisted on Scottish-made batteries, too.
back on topic, i get 54mbps over my wireless, not sure its worth the money to go faster....what do you guys reckon.........
My mains network topped out at 85mbps. I have seen them up to 200 mbps (netgear). Don't know if they ever actually achieve this.
Personally, I'm keeping my mains network boxes for emergency use only.
Wireless? The top hackers in the world won't use it...harded wired all the way. I think that says something.
I have Netgear bridges over my network particularly to help the Xbox 360 on Xbox live and the kids do not complain about sound/visual issues,HOWEVER ,that is not music audio related just headphone converstion/games.
Network via mains is extremely advanced and underused particularly in business,but is still viewed with caution.If you can separate telephone/broadband on the same lines without interference,why can't you separate 240v and internet protocol on mains without interference.I can see a placebo versus reality argument coming up here.
What would be the best type of mains electrical cable to run this through ? I have just finished a re-furb and am now regretting not putting QED electrics in when I rewired !!
Would I need gold plated plugs aswell ? OMG, rip the plaster off and start again
True of WEP, not of WPA (check which you use.....)
Ok ok. But WPA is *much* stronger than WEP. And you'll probably find that the top hackers in the world don't use much soap either, doesn't mean I'm going to follow their example .
And besides, even if you did warn me, if somebody hacks into my home network can I still sue you?
When security is a major issue, wireless is not used....or blue tooth for that matter
Alright, alright I'm not sitting in a nuclear power station, flying an aircraft or co-ordinating the UK Joint Forces to defend the realm.....but I do need to justify to myself the agro I have gone thru to install a wired network. There. I've said it. Satisfied?
