Also, is there any way to unscramble basic cable from the jack instead of the locked cable switchboard on site.I understand that it is merely a switch of sorts from the cable box.jeeeez...Until and unless some you out there begin to believe in the Tooth Fairy and Me you will never really be happy - just look at the anger in this thread.You've all been bad and will not get anything but a lump of coal come this Christmas.Hopefully if you are older then 12 you are teaching your children or family different then what you are showing them. My wife is a teacher and her kids know her husband works for the cable company, they flat out tell her their parents steal cable. hence the title of the thread "Any way of hacking digital cable" And no.. I sure as hell am not paying for all 100 something channels just so I can have the 5 that I like."This is an interesting thread - I can't believe I read the whole thing. Are there people out there that think Mercedes are too expensive but think they deserve one so they steal - yes every day Is anyone that posted in this thread owed free cable - no Is the comment from the Tooth Fairy hilarious - yes Something/anything/everything is only worth what someone will pay for it.I couldnt be more ashamed if my son told his friends and teachers that his dad steals ANYTHING and then laughed about it. Regardless of how you rationalize it, regardless of how you precieve it, its theft, its punishable, your actively hooking up to a service you are not paying for or subscribed to and are fully aware of it. I don't remember saying anything like that, though you are welcome to put words into my mouth if you want. Somehow we brought morals and values into a conversation about cable. you never said you were "owed it" you just eluded to it. The cable companies are getting paid for their services.
My question is this: can Comcast tell if non digital cable is being used in a household without being billed? after opening about 5 boxes used on my network SA boxes i will say there is a ways to get in to the.ONE 4200HD has a 4000 mother board the chips on the board can be pulled and then re programed with out any problems. yes it can be done YOU CAN LIFT THE CHIPS IN THE BOX READ THE CODE AND THEN RE COPY THEM TO OTHER BOXES.Or you're paying for the HSD signal and assume that entitles you to the video signal as well? Well, at least I can sleep at night knowing no one's ever going to come knocking on my door in the middle of the night. What is always funny is the flawed logic in people that knowingly take, use or steal what is not theres. If there is video signal coming through the line because the tech didnt trap it out, which he should, then you actively took the line and plugged it into your tv knowing it is not a service that you are paying for. There is a slight grey area there because if you couldnt care less and see no moral issue with it then even if they came to your home and put the trap in your housebox there is a good chance you would go out there, see the trap and take it off yourself and continue to steal the service. yes Are there people out there that claim to know a lot more than they do? ck who seems to infer something is being said against him?And whether you want to believe it or not, it's just a matter of time before they catch on. I see your point and get what you are saying but they didnt come in, install your HSI then hook up your tvs as well. Shame on the tech for not trapping out the video, shame on you for having no morals or values, then coming here to brag about it and defend it. we brought morals and values into a conversation about stealing cable.. Especially when there are only a few select channels that I like to watch... yes Most people with knowledge either state the facts or are quiet - they don't spout off about how much they know or argue with someone in a thrread such as this. yes Are there people out there getting cable that they aren't paying for by no fault of their own? IMO - no Are people on this site going to band together and form a group to pool their skills in order to "Stick it to the cable companies" - no considering a lot of the posts within this thread came from people that are employed by the cable companies.
