About time some official institution will step in and expose all these fraudulent cable companies and sue them for reimbursement of unrightfully charged invoices.\n\nReally an outrage EE's are told they 'know nothing' by die hard followers of the cable religion, who themselves are, in fact, the ones to lack any knowledge on the pretty simple science of conductor behavior and the really simple science of binary digit transfer over a data connect. It's called projection, i believe: the act of accusing someone else of a shortcoming you yourself are guilty of.\n\nTHERE IS NO WAY A WAVEFORM CAN BE ALTERED WHILE IT IS BEING TRANSFERRED AS A FAST SEQUENCE OF DIGITAL ON\/OFF PULSES. THE PULSES JUST ARRIVE, OR THEY DON'T, IN WHICH CASE NO BITS WILL BE AVAILABLE TO THE DAC AND NO ANALOG WAVEFORM WILL BE RECONSTRUCTED. Just like you cannot record color with a microphone or cruise the interstate in a sailboat. Simply impossible.\n\nI understand (by now) there's some pretty militant people out there wanting to uphold the myths (around cables a.o.). What i don't understand is where they find the arrogance to challenge peer reviewed scientists, especially when themselves they're from obviously completely uneducated background.\n\nWhat i understand even less is how making false claims about phenomena that are demonstrably false and consequently charging money for it from the generally ignorant public is not prohibited by law.
