Belkin Powerline AV+ Networking Adapters Introduction
When I ran across the Belkin CEDIA display, I was only interested in one thing - HDMI. It's what everyone is concerned about, what everyone is talking about, and frankly, it grabs reader's attention. Well, Belkin grabbed my attention with the Powerline AV+ Networking Adapters. This is an "over your existing power lines" solution to the problem of connecting your home theater to your router. Sure, more and more devices are coming with wireless connection but there are plenty that will either perform better hardwired or won't perform at all without one. The big selling point for me was that the Powerline AV+ not only connects your home theater to your office, but acts as a hub so that you can connect three devices to one port router! I've quickly run out of ports on my router and have been manually switching cables for some time. This sounded like the perfect solution. Now to see if it worked.
