My opinion is a "no" to WiFi. I prefer the reliability and reduced cost of a wired ethernet connection. That said, I have my networking hardware in a closet in the basement where it is out of sight.Afullmark wrote: ↑Wed Mar 03, 2021 4:58 am I'd advocate in-built wifi into the tuners. That might negate any issues with the ethernet port, and would open and engage those that just don't have ethernet available in suitable locations. Bringing ethernet to my own HDHOMERUN 4-tuner – I'm from the UK – involves annoying the other half with a black ethernet cable going from a mesh node to the HDHOMERUN. Wifi works perfectly with the HDHOMERUN, and if it was in-built, I'd certainly buy that model.
Interested to hear what others think.
I AM definitely in favor of a higher speed connection. Gigabit wired or (as has been suggested) a SFP / SFP+ port for fiber (I would never do 10 Gbit twisted pair).
