    I'd hate to see the DRM on those things.

    that's pretty cool. i can imagine we'll be seeing some rather awesome house-wide multicasting setups in the near future.

    thats what the 3gbs speed is for, 1gbs to send the data another 2gbs to send some continually evolving form of DRM

    So we could possibly have 3gbs wireless for our PC's as well then, i would be able to send huge files over my network in seconds.

    I have 1gbit wired cable in my house, and have no problems with it. devices are not wireless anyway, you still need powercables and cables running to speakers and htc, and htc to display and stuff.

    Unless the invent a zeropoint energy device that i can fit in a lcd/plasma screen. Only then you can say i have wireless display on the wall...

    I'd love to have my LCD hanging off the wall with no wires attached to it, although at the moment I'm using scart and component etc as well. I'm probably going to cut a channel into the wall and then put all the wires through there, with a junction box at the bottom of the wall. Same result, although maybe not as easy :dremel:

    Hell yes I am. No longer would I need to buy 50+ ft. cables, especially an HDMI cable; imagine how much that would cost!!!! As long as this is within a reasonable price I will really consider this for later installations or upgrades.....

    This should make a centralised A/V server with several wireless displays around the home a much easier prospect.
    Rather than a fileserver with several PCs around for playing movies/MP3s etc over the network, you can have a single a/v server with a few of these wireless jobbies for transmitting to any output devices you want around the house. :)

    if you use something like mythtv you can have a backend in your nice big noisy PC
    and then your front end's can be those lovely epia boxes and stuff
    Its just a shame that the epia boxes are so dang expensive :(
