    This is for a huge home theater. I have a power transformer that converts 380VAC between two legs of a 3-phase power system down to 230VAC, with a center-tap of the secondary being our "neutral" for this secondary. (FYI, there are three such transformers, connected between phases A and B; B and...

    Hi guys, so I have another confusion to settle .... I need to know if I should use STP or UTP cables for connectivity in my home. Done significant reading on this already, and it seems that STP cables are generally recommendable for outdoor or industrial use, or where "there's a lot of RF...

    Networked Audio from Receiver to Amp over ethernet I'm looking for recommendations to extend the 5.1 audio out from the right side video equipment to the left side power amps over a CAT 5, ethernet link. aka NOT tosLink. Similar thinking of the digital stage snakes made by Roland and...

    Hi guys ... I wanted to get everyone's opinion on whether it's okay to use normal custom-length cut CAT 5e/6 Ethernet cable for running it between floors through walls .. I actually have my wireless router on ground floor (i.e. 1st floor for US folks), and its signals kinda struggle when I move...
  5. System Setup and Connection
    I am going to run an ethernet cable from my router to the Home Theater in the basement. I have 4 devices to connect now. I think I should get an 8 port switch.

    Just installed my new Onkyo 818, setup networking which works great, but now I am short a Cat 5 space for my BluRay player. Is adding more space as simple as adding a 5-bin splitter? Does it slow the speed down any more than obviously the sharing of signal, or is there additional loss by...

  16. Home Theater System Recommendations
    First I am looking at the Onkyo 806 for $550 or the Onkyo 807 for $700. The only difference I see is the 807 has a ethernet connection and the two models have different THX certifications. Also the 807 comes with an A1 Ipod docking station. Other than internet radio what use is the Ethernet...

    I would like to take advantage of DIRECTV's (On Demand) wireless download feature. So I ran a 25 foot Ethernet cable between my HD DVR and computer. But it refuses to connect. Error code 13 The tech at DIRECTV tells me I need a router/modem. I guess I don't understand why this is necessary. If...

    I have just acquired a Rotel RSX-1560 receiver. It's a great machine with one disappointment: it has an ethernet port that supports remote oeration via computer software, but the owner manual provides no information other than "contact the dealer". If anyone knows either the tech details for...

    Oh and before I forget -- Everybody! -- DO NOT HAVE A DISC IN THE TRAY when you do an ethernet update of the Toshiba or RCA HD DVD player's firmware. It you do you may "brick" your player. Bob
