was looking for a cheap HDMI cable and not have to pay shipping (hence no monoprice).

Came across this on Amazon:

How does this work?  

The image shows ethernet going into the tv and then out to the devices via HDMI.

Would it work in serial as well?

Ethernet into my xbox and then hdmi/Ethernet out to the PS3?

Does this work on current tech or would i have to have a 360/PS3 that has this new standard of HDMI built in?

This cable is backwards compatible with all previous HDMI standards, so you'll be able to use this cable with all your HDMI devices. When you connect two devices with different HDMI standards, they will automatically find the best available connection.

But does the hardware have to have the capability built in or is it just there?

Ethernet over HDMI is part of the 1.4 standard, but devices that support it are rarer than hen's teeth. 

If you're connecting a TV and say, a console, both have to support ethernet over HDMI for it to work.
