Whenever I ask the readership a question, I am amazed at the number of well-informed people pipe in.
Question about TVs. Actually about those big monitors, which is pretty much what they are now.
As I contemplate some relocation issues, I am wondering if there are good, fast “wireless” TV/monitors which don’t need a cable, coax or cat-5, from the wall or satellite box, etc.
I am thinking I won’t get “cable” at all, just internet. After all, with cable there are “57 channels and nothing on”, as the song goes. More like 357, and I don’t mean “magnum”. You can subscribe to channels and get news on youtube, even live events. And I don’t watch much news anyway, lately. It’s all just too… dreadful.
The idea is to have the monitor on a large rolling stand. There will be need for a power cord, of course. Without having to have a specific cable connection, the whole thing could be easily relocated to another wall power plug.
I would probably attach a UPS on the bottom of the stand. Any components (e.g., a region-free blu-ray player) I want to plug into the monitor would go on the stand’s shelves and would draw their power also off the UPS.
Fast router for fast wi-fi directly to the “TV”.
Any thoughts? Have any of you been down this path? Minimum speeds? Hardware? Get my own router? Use the internet provider’s router?
