Wireless... but needs line of sight? Hmmm. May as well just get a long HDMI cable for £10. Is wireless HDMI *that* difficult to implement for a reasonable price?

I think that for a awful lot of people this is yet another example of technology in search of a "need" rather than a genuine need driving the technology. HiDef wireless transfer via ones router and/or whichever media box of tricks you've got is already well established technology. Anything we download on home-office pc can be readily streamed via the router to our HTPC in the living room. Our blu-ray player connects via an HDMI cable discretely concealed behind the TV-bench. That set-up is only one example of the type of thing one can do and I just do not see the need for most people with this kit - even if it worked properly!

@Chris2510 - agreed - and you'd think it wouldn't be. Wireless USB is something of a false dawn however which is why it hasn't taken off with every USB peripheral dropping its cable.

@Arctic Fox - it's for connecting PCs. Wireless HDMI removes the need for a dedicated media centre. WiDi 2.0 looks the better bet for now though.

@Adrian Byron-Parker - no, in real terms speeds won't ever get that fast - but theoretically it is possible.
