If I read your question correctly, yes you can connect a 2ch output of the Panasonic to the 2ch input of one ZP120. This device is then available to all…

My new job

Hi Michelle,
Unfortunately, or fortunately which ever way you want to look at it, work has been rather hectic. Never mind it puts food on our plates. :)

As others have said, your expertise with housing and decorating will be a great asset in the new job.
Good luck, and may you…

I don't believe you'll have any issues, but then it could also depend on the buffering of the device's you're using. I've streamed the same HD video file to three…

If you cannot get the pipe cleared, just order a replacement.

Since you want to view the image on your TV's the simplest method would be to use an analog camera and a cheap RF Video modulator.

I'm intrigued by what you’re planning for the matrix switches, and how you’re going to control the devices as well. I look forward to reading about the results. Good luck…

The controlling of each device becomes another hurdle especially if you have a couple of devices from the same manufacturer, i.e. multiple AVR’s for multichannel audio.

I wasn't asking why, I already stream HD video, and IMO at this point in time I don't feel it is worth the hassle.

That's fair enough, but why bother with BR when you won't have the audio to do it justice?

Then why would you bother wanting to stream a BR movie? BR players are cheap as chips these days.

Why would you suggest separating the TV and data circuits to different areas if they are considering to install a product along the lines of Starserve?

As Rodda has indicated, run multiples of LAN cables to those rooms that you require Internet access.
Remember the audio/video streaming device will usually be away from the area in…
