PoE

Post by MonkeyBoy »

I would like to request the implementation of PoE in future products. Since wired ethernet is (currently) required, it would reduce the need for yet another wall wart (and the associated cost in the product price). I would certainly not eliminate the ability to use a discrete power supply for those who do not have a PoE switch.

Thanks!

All HDHomeRun products need at least 1 Amp, the latest 5th gen models come with a 1.5A power supply, while the Prime (Cable Card) comes with a 2.5A power supply, all of which is more than what the latest iterations of Power over Ethernet can handle.

The power budget isn't an issue for PoE. Cost is.
