- Television is changing. Several years ago, over the air television
went digital, bringing with it higher quality images and more
channels, but many homes still received their signal from cable TV or
Sattelite. As the Internet speeds to the home increase, we are
finding Television increasingly integrated with the network. Many
with strong over the air signals, who what only limited cable
programming, are leaving cable and getting the few pay shows they
watch online. We discuss this trend, and the devices that support it.
Networking - The home network is rapidly becoming the nerve center
of your home. It is now used for internal communication between
devices, to link your television and audio components to your music
and video connection, to view video from security cameras, to connect
printers and disks to computers, and much more.
