Anyone for serial A/V connections?
2005-06-20

Someone needs to come up with a simple widely adopted standard for serial cables to connect all A/V equipment. Maybe it won't do everything (video separate for now?) but after tearing apart two stereo/tv/dvd systems and pondering having to set them up in the new place, I'd really love being able to run just one cable from each device to the closest device, and have every cable be the same. Instead I have the weird chain of different cables for the video signal (with splitting/etc) and then the one to many for the audio (receiver to everything else). And on top of that are the computers...

Maybe I'm just a luddite that I thought "serial" and not "bluetooth"...
