Every second HDMI cable in store is being advertised with "High Speed Ethernet Support" on its packaging.

... and yet I have never-ever seen a single device that makes use of that feature. Have you?


It's an alternative way to hook up your devices to your LAN & the Internet. I guess the idea was that your TV or AV receiver would act as a switch between regular ethernet cables (or your WiFi) and your HDMI connected devices, enabling them to go online without a separate cable.


@fribbledom @David_A_Webcomic TVs getting on the internet -- preposterous! :p

The spec was probably made before wireless was as ubiquitous as it is now.
