Better for connecting devices that are a long distance apart.
yes. it was a bit of joke tho as ppl rubbish me about my praise of
monster cables.
Ought to be cheaper to stream video over a network to a computer
with the HDMI output at the screen, but simpler and easier to
use this I suppose. The shorter cables would be more economical
in that regard.
there are shorter lengths. but I wonder how long it will be before
optical cables become the norm? or maybe no cables in future, everything
connected by wifi. also, Samsung now has a tv that has a separate box
for connections to other equipment and just one optical cable from the
box to the panel.

Forever with those distances.

Unlikely.

Stupid way to do things.

I suspect that AV equipment will eventually use optical interconnect cables

I think it's a good idea. especially if the tv is wall mounted

Sure, but even you have noticed that that isnt EVERYTHING.

Gamers don’t use wifi, for a reason.

They have been available for audio for a couple decades

your talking about toslink no doubt, which is not what I'm talking
about. with a HDMI connection you don't need an optical audio
connection. I'm saying that eventually amps will connect via optical
cables for video and audio
