    Does it require an extra power socket because if it does then I'm afraid that it's useless.

    i can bet Sony will start producing a copy of this item and call it its own and the whole world will prise it @ being so damn smart its allways been like this when Phillips invents the goods and Sony takes the credit.

    Presumably it could be built into TVs and sources (be they HD-DVD/Blu-Ray/DVD or terrestrial/satellite digiboxes or consoles) and take their power from the device they're built into?

    This is pretty amazing when you consider what it is doing - UNCOMPRESSED HD video, even at the lower end of the resolution scale (say 720p at 30fps) needs 720(lines)*1280(columns)*24(bits per pixel)*30(fps) bits / sec = 632Mb/sec (+sound +overheads) over a wireless link. Crank it up to 1080p at 60fps and you're staring down the barrel of 3Gb/sec. That is hardcore.

    Why would that matter?
    It will be sitting in the corner with your reciever,dvd etc away from the TV, thats sort of the point to remove all the cables away from the TV. :worried:

    If it needs an extra power supply, you'll be looking at one each end, so thats two plugs required, if like me, your room only has two sockets at each location and you are renting then the maximum number of sockets you can get out is limited.

    You have a point

    I suppose what it could mean is only 2 cables, 1 for the TV and 1 for the reciever, rather than TV,DVD,Satallite etc

    Is there any latency?

    Does the conversion / deconversion to and from a radio signal cause any delay in the video? Assuming they fix the current glitches, that would be the only other thing that could keep me from buying this when it is released.
