Me, I really don't like networking and all that it entails to make things work properly but have taught myself to network because of the benefits. Have 6 computers on my network but no server, have had a NAS for many years as a central data repository and media server.

I have this Model the Linksys AC1200, the N one died in a Power Outage. Why would I test Wireless, it works good for my Phones. Like I said at PacBell all the Computers were connected to the Ethernet Network. My house in the Bay Area Fremont, CA I ran Cat5e myself, because Wireless wasn't reliable. Then when I moved to Palm Desert, CA Structured Cat5e was an option. Then here in Utah Structured Cat5e was part of the Hardwiring Plan. I use to work with and talk to PacBell Engineers and Hardwire was their preferred connection if you wanted a Solid Reliable Connection, and I have never looked back since!

I would think that you would have heard of this thing called a surge protector what with your telecom background.

Your test your wireless network for the same reason that you test your wired network: to make sure both are performing as they should. Another reason to test your wireless network is so that you can make intelligent and informed comments about it.

Having a preference is just fine, but either type of network offers a solid and reliable connection for streaming videos. A wireless network offers far faster speeds than what your TV's 100 Mbps ethernet port can receive. Currently, that only matters if streaming bitrates ever actually reach 4K disc levels or if you are able to use Sony's Bravia Core service, which recommends a minimum of 115 Mbps for best results.

Is it a seperate app over there? Here, it’s just integrated into the overall Prime app with a ‘free with ads’ section.

Not seperate - part of Prime Video.

why test stuff when you can make the same ignorant comment over and over again?

AFAIK no one has suggested you disconnect your ethernet cable and use Wi-Fi. IF you should ever procure the select Sony TVís and sub to their content then you would need to upgrade your service, connect via Wi-Fi or USB dongle.

What folks really get tired of is your response to any RTSP (streaming) problems must be because they are using Wi-Fi. In some cases that could be true but a quick test by that Wi-Fi device should help eliminate the signal level issues. I have two Roku devices that show level and speed for Wi-Fi in the user menu. Advance items can be seen with these button sequences.

Hard RTSP facts: No amount of connection speed of any type will eliminate video aberrations encoded in the files. There is a large variation of network speed between end user and the CDN, a local wired connection will not change that. There is a large variation between providers in their encodes of the same title. I and others have shown these differences using Apple Developer HUD. It is a fact and how you are connected will not change this.

I always connect my equipment to a surge protector, that was not the problem the Router was old and it didn't work right after the Power Loss.

See, testing your wireless network was a worthwhile thing to do after all.

My old retired N router served me for 12 years and it is still in good working order. It endured many power outages during that time. You must have bad luck or you are rough with your toys. Be nice to your toys.

Just because of my background and working on Wireless problems gives me my strong beliefs on Hardwire Ethernet. If you guys love Wireless so much would you use Wireless HDMI? I'm pretty sure that most of you if not all would go with Hardwire!

What I would do is evaluate its performance and reliability for myself and then decide. It's called having an objective and open mind.

With that said, HDMI cables transmit a LOT of data. 4K HDMI cables carry up to 18 Gbps and 8K HDMI cables deliver up to 48 Gbps. Wirelessly transmitting that much data reliably in a home environment is probably still a big challenge.

Conceptually, who wouldn't want to reduce the number of wires in their set-ups if doing so could be done without any issues? One of HDMI's greatest benefits is that it is a single cable capable of delivering both video and audio signals; it reduced the number of cables needed.

I am a for real tech person, you do a system based on many technical factors, not emotions.

At this time I have no need for wireless HDMI so have not looked into its use. I do plan to replace all my current HDMI cables with Certified Premium cables except the one to the video projector. That one will be a new Certified Ultra High Speed Active HDMI fiber optic cable. It is 49' in length, only need 35' but 49' is as close as I could get.

If your at work and called for help, he be the guy that you would pray never responds to the service request.

Starting tomorrow I begin a series of appointments with some specialists in an attempt to solve some ongoing mysterious mysteries.

[Show spoiler]It's sorta serious stuff that I don't wanna take too seriously, but reality being the beech that it is, I gotta do it. It will probably cut into my playtime here, but better that than me. Be back as soon as I can.
