    Hi.
    I have a kind of stupid technology question. This is somewhat in regards to my internet issues with my android TV, assuming you remember that thread.

    So HDMI calls can carry an internet signal now, but I've never been 100% sure on it's relevance. Whilst browsing some 4K Blu-Ray players, for some reason it dawned on me.

    Is the purpose of an HDMI cable that carries an internet signal as follows?

    My Ethernet cable goes into my TV, the internet signal then goes through my TV and out my HDMI cable(s) to my hardware components (PS5, Blu-Ray player, et.)?

    Assuming I'm correct, things make so much more sense.


    Part II:

    Does this also work in reverse? If my Ethernet cable is plugged into my PS4, the internet signal is then carried through the HDMI to my TV.

    And assuming that's correct, if I have an Ethernet cable going into my TV, and one going into my PS4, then through the HDMI to my TV again, could they have been interfering with each other? Could that be why my router kept fucking up after a bit, due to that setup?
