I wish they'd stop pushing 802.11a. It's ancient technology.
I recommend users to buy "Pre-N" devices. Way faster than g/a, way better range, and less interference.
Interesting, were you having a great deal of troubles with g/a devices? I've been running my MCE/Extender setup over a g wireless connection (my laptops, etc on the a), which includes watching Live TV and DVD's that are spinning on my computer two floors up and never had a problem. That's with it sitting next to my wireless phone and also with my Sonos wireless network in the mix.
I actually push 802.11a quite a bit because it's mature, stable, I've never had any problems with it and it's standardized. I'm just curious what problems you were having since I've never had one and it's always good to know what to look for.
How does your DLP look when pumping SDTV through it? I'm thinking of upgrading strictly for my 360 from a SD set but I don't watch TV enough to warrent paying $50/month for a HDTV so that leaves with with the few OTA and mostly SD.BHpaddock wrote:
Oh and Scoble, don't take HDTV advice from those guys. A 720p native set like my Samsung DLP is the lowest you'd want to get.
