Default Is there anyway to de-scramble digital cable?

My comcast has all of the sports, is there anyway to unblock these channels - similar to hacking a DSS card?

As far as I know, digital is the "cheat proof" format.

There's all kinds of BS on the internet about being able to do it, but I think it's purely BS.

I got a filter that allows me to view all pay-per-view events for free on my digital cable. I'm paying for the cable, and the digital converter; I'm stealing all PPV events.

It's pretty much a one-way valve. It allows the signal in, but blocks the billing info from being sent out (to the cable company).

The "On Demand" (where you can pause or rewind the movie) doesn't work, probably because that two-way communication is blocked.

I have no idea if it would work on Sunday Ticket--I just got the thing a few months ago.

Sorry, I don't remember the name of the site where I bought it. I'm sure you're getting spam about it. That's how I got mine.

Hope this helps.

Hey Bobby,

I had one of those filters and they don't work.

That filter will will fill up the memory on your digital cable converter. Once your memory fills up your won't be able to order any PPV events and you'll get a message asking you to contact you cable co. I tried for many hours (including research on the 'net) trying to figure out how to clear the damn memory with no luck and plenty of fustration. The only way to clear the memory is to remove the filter and contact the cable company to request them to do it or just wait until the box eventually clears itself. The nice part is you'll recieve a nice BIG bill for all the movies you thought you watched for free.

I was able to watch 5 movies before my memory was filled.

Good luck,

GKG

Mine came with instructions to clear the memory. But only time will tell if they will do any good.

Thanks for the heads-up.

I got a spam email about this (actually a somewhat informative junk email-whose claims I later found to be accurate on a couple web sites).

The key is clearing your memory, and it apparently works (but requires you to take your cable box apart & surely break a few more laws).

I don't know one who has actually done it, so it's pure 2nd hand info(and may be scammers backing scammers).

I think I'm going the dish route in a month two anyhow.

Bobby,

If you can figure out how to beat the memory, let me know.

Although, it can never beat putting me on to Sklanksy's books [img]i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif[/img]

When I was in College I had a house out in the mountains with a C-Band Dish. We recieved almost every NCCA, NFL, NBA, and NHL game for free. Those were the days.[img]i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif[/img]

I had zero neighbors and a local that always had the Broncos at least 3 points higher than the Stardust line.[img]i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif[/img]

Why do I find it oddly refreshing to hear someone say this without rationalizing, explaining or blaming?

Here's a novel idea - pay for the fvcking cable. How much does pay per view cost anyways? 3 bucks? And Sunday ticket costs $129 for the season. We aren't talking megabucks here.

Hartley, NFL is $179 and goes up every year. I am going to program my card as soon a I educate myself to do it. Cable companies are ripping off the public. I applaud the people who find other means to watch TV. These shit companies don't own the skies.

Try paying 150 bucks a month for a full service cable solution and then you'll figure out why everyone out there is trying to rip off the cable companies.

Or, conversely, "Try ripping off the cable companies, and then you'll figure out why everyone out there is paying 150 bucks a month for a full service cable solution." [img]i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif[/img]

There's the rationalization I was looking for!
