comment Coaxial Cabling Splitter and Satellite TV Disk
@JPhi1618 No, that is just the tech behind how they achieve such tremendous speeds. No one ever prevented computer engineers from running parallel signals concurrently over a single line.

Also, live sports is a pretty specific edge case, you would need access to a super computer to encode an hd video stream live, with any decent encoding (also, all decent encoding algorithms really like some about of lookahead, which is impossible in a live broadcast)

And just to reiterate, I can 100% guaranty, that at times it has worked perfectly. both at the same time, different channels, and both capable of changing those channels concurrently. Also, the disk is like 100-150 feet away from the house, so running a second cable is a serious venture.

comment Coaxial Cabling Splitter and Satellite TV Disk
@ench Oh, I sort of thought it was the opposite. I thought tv encryption, like what you get on dvds and BR was completely antiquated. And know of at least one counter example (psarips.com/news/one-thing-i-hate-about-web-dls). Either way though, we have to be talking about many orders of magnitude faster. Not only faster than broadband, but many times faster than sata cabling between harddrives. I doubt the bandwidth inside my motherboard even reaches speeds high enough to transfer every show on TV concurrently (I doubt it is even a quarter of that).

comment Why does dirt kill saw blades?
"As opposed to rock chips". Rock chips should always do more harm than dirt. But they are a whole lot less common and easier to avoid. For example with a chainsaw, dirt is in general going to cause the most wear. But metal and rock is far more instantly catastrophic, it is just less common and easier to avoid.

Basically, saws made for wood are only good for wood, and trying to cut metal, rock, or dirt with them will cause problems. It is just that dirt is so much more common.

Hogs can chew through a 2x4 in like a single bite. If I had access to high quality, thick, hardwood, that would work. But I think it would be several thousand dollars worth of wood (I have no idea how much a hardwood board costs).
