Using VM socket for Smart TV.
I've been told that Smart TV's work better with a wired connection, rather than wifi.
The VM feed in my living room is right behind the TV. I believe that one socket is for TV/phone and the other for broadband- is that right?
If so, i've been told that I cannot plug my smart TV into a cable outlet and expect it to work, as a smart TV does not have the required cable broadband modem.
Could I get a free superhub for this purpose? Other threads say they are rubbish, but it might be fit for what I want it to do??
The broadband used for my computers comes in via a separate outlet in my office on the top floor and is distributed via wifi, so it's too far to plug an ethernet cable into the tv from the router.
As the router and modem are on the top floor in, I only get about 50% signal strength on the ground floor, which is ok for the netbook that I use down there.
Other threads have said that Smart TV's aren't very good, especially if done via wifi. I won't be the TV buying it for this, it just happens to have it!
