Experimenting keeps life interesting, even if the state of current technology doesn't support what your trying to achieve. Hmmm, even Tesla had his detractors.
BTW - When mentioning items like HDMI cables that can handle Ethernet, try and find those items on the Lowe's or Best Buy online sites and post links. I would like read about them, but, like many of us, don't have the time to research everything we see posted.

Interesting project, I'm curious to see how far you get.

I will try to remember to post links. Thanks for telling me to do that. I did not think about doing that. Here is the lowes HDMI wall port

And here is the Cable I saw @ Best Buy

If you google "HDMI ethernet" a lot of stuff comes up also.

This link after Googling has me interested. I like this idea.

First time I've heard of this capability.

Really the only thing that I can not figure out is is how would we make each monitor act as a seperate workstation but have them all on the same system so that the whole computer learns and you do not have to move data. I will try to come up with a drawing with what I am trying to say.

I still don't see the point.

You wan't terminals using the Main Computer? You wan't different computers running programs from the Main Computer (X tcp support).

What does "call" another monitor mean?
