Interesting... so if it's 568A, it'll only support 10/100 ?

Correct,

 568a uses 2 or 3 of 4 pairs which 100 can work on 1000 needs 4 pairs which is 568B.

Lol... damn installers... They made half the connections 568a and 568b, I switched those, pretty much everything now is running 1000, other than 1 MD which only has a 10/100 nic... ugh... I still can't find info on playback of HD or BD content however.

crap. The only difference between TIA-568A und TIA-568B is that pairs 2 and 3 are swapped.

Wow. 30 to 40G for a movie.
(Passes Out!)
Here is I think how I am going to proceed with the Blu-Ray issue. LMCE is in fact not only a media center, but a media control station. I have it on a pretty good track, that I am getting a Blu-Ray/Netflix player for Christmas. I noticed this when one of my Netflix mailing covers went missing, (yes I will create a template :) )as I do not have HD TV Yet, and my big screen TV is far from ready to fail, I may just use a capture or pvr card to get the signal from the Bul-Ray player into my system, and let LMCE and my USB-UIRT control it.

I can remember the first time I ripped a normal DVD with LMCE. 7G. I was not expecting this. But now 30 to 40G. I know storage is cheap, but wow. Perhaps going forward, when the bits are written to have a css and dvdread piece of software for Blu-Ray players, I will get one for inside an MD or a Core. But as I have had a wonderful experience with LMCE controlling external components still using the LMCE UI, I will most likely just do that for now.

Just my thoughts. I am guilty a lot for not fully realizing this platforms media powers, as to control and ease of use, And I know I won't get the full beauty and power of the Blu-Ray media using my old-school non-HD sets, but I can still enjoy LMCE's "One Pane Of Glass" ease of use.

Best of luck, and Kindest Regards,

Seth

Just a quick update - I haven't tried it yet, but over on doom9 they claimed to have cracked BD+ with an opensource cross platform (java I believe with an OS specific library), so supposedly any/all Blu-Ray movies out at the moment are able to be ripped/played on linux.

I don't have the links handy, but follow the links from the Ubuntu BR/HD info link above.
