I'd also be worried about the affects of heat on the coax. That comment isn't based on any experience but I know dryer exhausts can get pretty hot and I'm not sure how the sheathing on the coax would cope.

I've been reading your blog off and on for awhile now and I really enjoy it. I blog on some of the same topics myself. If you get a chance to check it out I'd welcome the feedback!

I would be concerned about several things.
1) The dryer heat is probably not going to be messed up by having he coax through it, however
2) I agree about the temperature of the dryer heat with the coax. It should not have a negative effect on the signal, but you would need to guarantee that the heat would not melt the plastic.

Is there no way to access via the house elsewhere?
You can check on line for the specific coax that you use, but in general the loss per foot of decent RG6 would not be too horrible if you can find a route that just is somewhat indirect.

BTW: a splitter will generally be about .5 dB loss per port. This is not bad, as long as you do not start cascading lots of splits everywhere - As you mentioned.
Bear in mind that every time you split, you have that loss somewhere. The key is making sure no individual split ends up with too much loss.

If you cannot take a somewhat indirect route, instead of going near the dryer vent, can you drill a 1/4" hole all the way through the concrete? They do sell drill bits that are ridiculously long lengths for just this kind of purpose. Just seal the outer edge with clear caulk.

Classic exposition, I have also mentioned it in my blog article. But it is a pity that almost no friend discussed it with me. I am very happy to see your article.
