    Does 60Ghz even pass through a wall?

    They'd be wise to make it standard for all new HD ready devices at little or no extra as unlikely as it is

    Judging by the performance of home wifi routers and internet, I would say...what is the point? You can't beat the performance of a good solid wired solution.

    Wireless is tempremental.

    yes wireless is so so at the best of times ... being in a open plan kitchen/lounge dining will blenders/microwaves and other kitchen appliances could interfer when entertaining and preparing food and cocktails.

    Most importantly what is the long term results of exposure to such digital electromagetic radiation with 1/2/3 metres at 4-6 hours a day ..let say over 2/5/10 years.

    Like most people living in the inner city unit/house screen are becoming multi-purpose so TV/ConsolePS3/Blueray/PC/internet are all used on the one screen to save space. With Full HD and HD+ thats a lot of transmittion at a close proximatity to the user and current wireless is only a fraction of the frequency.

    There is a reason computers are shielded is to avoid dust and the user from high frequency digital and electromagnetic radiation.
    NOTE: transmitters are generally the hot spot in most areas of exposure and are usually of limits to the general public for this reason.... are using some sort of directional transmitter to limit to exposure area i.e up/down side shielding ???

    current wireless is about 54mbits 108 if you are lucky with MIMO... Full HD with 5.1 is about 5-12Gbits depending on the type of action on screen ....
    And as far as walls .... gibrock/venire walls maybe/fullbrick hmmmm concrete with rio (steel reenforcement) forget it ..... found this out at the old folks place when I tried to set up a wireless link from a couple rooms a way for Media server/Mediaplayer ... kept losing the signal and dropping/pausing etc even tried a wireless bridge with arials right near doors either side of hallway not luck to much interfernace.
    Then had to either hard wire or go EOP(enthernet over power) with a couple of netcomm 85Mbits and it work without missing a beat. Plugs into the power points at either end... not much interfiers with it no extra radiation and does the job well.

    Do we risk our health for vanitity !!!

    I must admit that those EOP adapters are fantastic. Picked myself up a set of devolo 85mbps adapters.

    They work 100%.

    No wireless connectivity problems and no WEP/WPA keys no hexidecimal or passphrases, just plug in and done.

    HDMI over mains should be netgears next product. Since Blue Ray & HD DVD drives are better priced for pc. Don't know how they would tackle the HDCP problem though.
    I could really do with a way to play my blue rays from my pc to the 46" bravia downstairs without having to run a 20m HDMI cable all the way down. haha
