New devices conforming to the HDMI v1.4 specification can act as an ethernet hub.

ie) you run ethernet cable to your HDMI v1.4 capable TV and the tv shares the ethernet connection over the HDMI cable with other HDMI v1.4 capable devices.

If you have older devices, then the extra wires go unused.

Anyone know what kind of import duties get slapped by Customs on Monoprice parcels? Shipping via USPS means no brokerage fees, but what about duties?

It just sends the ethernet signal through the HDMI cable. Unfortunately, it requires devices that support the protocol because, obviously, they need to know to network over the HDMI. There aren't many (any?) such devices yet, but spending a small amount extra to buy these cables future proofs your setup a bit more. You shouldn't need to purchase new cables when you start using such devices.

If your order is under $20 usually there is no duty or brokerage. I've ordered from monoprice many times for little things and all my orders under $20 i've never been hit with duty or brockerage fees. Hope that helps :)

This would be fantastic but I guess like you said, there aren't any such devices yet? Wifi is great but not everything we have is wifi...looking to hear more about this.

I used to keep my orders under $20-25 (Cdn) to avoid duties, one order of around $27 once got him with $5 customs charge and then GST totalling about (9.xx incl the $5).

I just placed an order 3 weeks ago, well over... $47 after shipping, and it came in with no duties or taxes. Declared value was $30.80 US, and it was not marked gift.
It shipped Out via USPS Air Parcel

I'm guessing its just that customs did not select that package to assess it this time?
