artanis: Things like this is why my eyes glaze over whenever someone starts talking about running cables between devices. Survival feature, really.

Myself? IPv6 + (fast)WiFi or ethernet. If any of these devices really wanted to be connected like this they'd support running all those ins and outs through standard networking protocols.

Shish: 1920x1080, 32-bit colour, 60fps = 4 gigabit; for everything else ethernet is win though :3

To explain the diagram a little; I have various audio / video sources, various connectors, and various sinks -- I realised that if I type in my list of stuff in the form of eg "PS2 -> Scart", "Scart -> Scart" (a cable), "Scart -> TV" then any random graphing software will be able to tell me what I need to plug into what to make things work.

artanis: Proving once again that I can see the future, 1080p over wireless (up to 30m,) and lossless. Needless to say, once 1080p goes over wireless, ethernet is a done deal.

Though the method they used was non-obvious.

They split the color data for each pixel across packets, with the most important bits in the highest priority packets, and the next in lesser importance packets and so on. The failure condition in case the other signal maintaining features start failing is that you lose data starting from the least important bits. Nifty, eh?

Shish: That's really quite impressive :O

Though AFAIK 802.11n has a theoretical max of 600Mbit/s with no overhead, so I'm still not sure how they're putting 4Gbit/s of data in there...

Hurrah if it works though, and hopefully it'll solve the problem of TVs not having enough input sockets too \o/

artanis: Gigabit Wi-Fi is in development. Looking at ~1.3GBit/s over wireless.
