Re: [HD] Is Verizon lying about HD?

MOCA has several bands. IF the provider is using up to 1 Ghz, they should probably use MOCA band D so it doesn't interfere.

Slide from this presentaion:

Verizon didn't start with 1 Ghz because at the time they launched, the boxes weren't available to do 1 Ghz. It's possible now, but doesn't provide a huge benefit for the costs involved. Especially since all the 1 Ghz capable boxes also do MPEG4.

Dr Drew, they couldnt do that because there are a BILLION 5-1000Mhz coax splitters in the field right now.

That 1000Mhz isn't a hard cut off.

The signal above 1000 Mhz still passes on the majority of 5-1000 Mhz splitters. They just aren't performance tested or rated for a known amount of loss above 1000 Mhz. MOCA equipment was designed with that in mind.

If it's important, back it up... twice. Even 99.999% availability isn't enough sometimes.
