i use an xbox for media consumption, so this is not an issue for me... but this is geekzone, so i understand the curiosity.

 

apparently, this works as well (for sony and lg): https://www.amazon.com/Ethernet-Adapter-Power-Cable-Stick/dp/B07VSFXNNT?th=1

Same thing (except the adapter you link says it's only 100mbps?). My TV only supports USB2 so I don't get the full speed the Cable Matters adapter is capable of, but it gives me circa 240mbps over Ethernet (according to Netflix network tester). My problem appears to be a very specific issue related to (from what I can tell) broadcasting not working over the adapter - so specific that I can't find any info about it at all!

If you had a chance to try the adapter on your C9 and see if you get the same results would be really helpful (C9 at least runs the same firmware as the C8)?

 

 

I thought about that and thought you might ask. Sorry no can do. It's a major hassle because I need to take the C1 down from the wall to get at the adapter etc - the TV is a very flush fit with the wall and partly in a recess. I need to get someone in to help because Mrs Code can't help with it. Unfortunately not the simple job that it might seem.





Sometimes I just sit and think. Other times I just sit.

That's the YT video that was posted here that sparked this part of this thread.
