    That is correct, but your PS3 can only do gigabit. Cat5e can handle gigabit just fine.

    Taking longer than I though. :lol: Uploading a 1080p 15 minute video with my sucky Internet is nearly impossible. :dopey: Give it about another hour.

    Yes they do.. You can buy them all the way upto 150ft with end connectors. I just ordered spools when I wired my house.

    I have a feeling we had 3 guys in D3 running wireless and that led to the issues. Easy to fix guys.

    And cat5e can be found stupid cheap.

    I did my math came out to 65' but rounded to 75' thinking there wouldn't be a 65'

    I've always run wireless and never had issues though!

    Cat5e is a cheap sure fire way to having a decent connection even with crap internet. the ps3 wireless sucks. So if you at 65' 75 would be perfect just make sure its a Cat5E

    Is there a certain brand I should look at or consider or does it even matter?

    That is what limits me sometimes. The other TV is a floor up, far side of house. I could run cable through walls, storerooms, but... It is like 25 ft, 50-60 ft path, then 10+ final. Even 100 is dicey, so I have held off.

    In The Finest of D4 Fashion (Late)
    The D4 Race Report




    There are only two places in any given race. You are in the lead... or... you are "somewhere else". With the rare exception of one race, 5/6ths of the evening, I was... somewhere else. I collected win #7. In no way, shape or form was this win a "run-away". My precious lead was taken away not once, but twice. Somehow I managed to find the front again but man was it a snot-fest! The rest of the night was just as exciting. Although I was in the "somewhere else" category, I found many battles. I didn't really know what positions were all were fighting for but it didn't seem to matter. It was on. Leader or back marker. If you show up with your gloves laced, you are sure to find a fight no matter where you are on the track.

    Thanks again to Fox for hosting, goat for keeping the animals in the yard and everyone else in D4 for making it such a cool night. :tup:

    Division 4 data complete!

    I know this really late, but just wanted add on to the conversation about the Oculus Rift that Owens started last week. It turns out that Sony appears to be developing the same thing for the PS4! :drool:

    And in other Sony news, have you guys checked out the upcoming PS Vita TV yet?

    There is another way to go if running Cat(X) all over the house isn't an option. I am using a MoCA solution for the PS3 hardwire. MoCA (Multimedia Over Cable Alliance) is a method of Ethernet over coax. With the adapters, you can use the coax pre-wire like an Ethernet cord. It still works even if you are using the cable for video service. Seems to work pretty well here.

    Awesome news, and the VR set looks awesome. I wonder if it comes in black? *Insert Christian Bale meme here*

    Another option for the wireless thing is to get another wireless router and set it up to connect to your wireless access point, then wire your PS3 to that. Will bypass the crappy PS3 wireless. I don't really know how to set up the routers to do that, I just know it can be done.

    I might have missed the post. Did anyone get D3 data entered? Yikes. I just checked and no, D3 data has not been entered and there do not appear to be in replays uploaded. Anyone have all 6 and can upload them?\


    Would someone please post something so I can get the Steward update in without double posting? Or are you guys just trying to get me to stay up late? ;)

    I'm really, actually excited to do some reviews this week and use the new system. :tup: kcheeb is utterly exceeding all my expectations for this thing.

    Reckon I'll go burn one while I wait.

    So close, a couple of things need to be sorted, formats for the gaps (remove the +) and total time.
