Just a quick post…

In the last two parts of this series I stated I’d be using Ethernet over Powerline (aka HomePlug) as the backbone for my media system.

I currently own two 14Mbps units and tests have rapidly shown that this is nowhere near good enough.  Looks like I’ll have to upgrade to the 200Mbps units once I get paid and hope that it makes a difference.  If it doesn’t, I think I’m going to have to go down the route of Wireless-AP’s flashed with OpenWRT and acting as bridge devices to get the DHCP/TFTP working for the media directors.

Hmmm, PXE over a flakey wireless CX – not good… :o(
