View Full Version : Streaming Question

Thinking about streaming movies direct to new 2nd plasma TV, it is better to hardwire or wireless? If hardwired, I'm going to need about 100' cable, what's the difference between Cat7, 6, 5? I can get 100' Cat 7 from Newegg for $25. Note real distance when feeding from hub through ceiling to TV is much less than 100' but more than 25' which seems to be units of purchasing cable.

I already have 1 BluRay player hardwired and will need to feed through the same hub for new plasma TV. The hub is capable of 10/100/1G rate.

I have the option of buying $100 wireless adapter for the TV. My router is the N600 wireless dual band GIGABIT Router.

Me, If its stationary I go Hardwired....if its moving around Wireless. You can always go with 2-25' cables and a coupler in between if you don't want 100' of cable coiled on the floor
