I am a comcast HSI subscriber with which I get the 12 mbit down speed at a month.
First a foremost , I love the service I am receiving.
Shame on you - go get a life - and stop this post for heaven's sake...(even though I added to it)as for those of you who steal analog cable either by sneaking out in the middle of the night to the box or pole (which, by the way you do in an effort to not get caught STEALING because you know it's WRONG) or those of you who take advantage of an oversight by the tech who forgot to trap out the video, Your game will be over soon because over the next few years there will be less and less analog service, and by 2009 it will be all digital and reqire an STB to get anything.
Here in my area we have already started phasing out analog cable a couple channels at a time and will keep doing so until there is no more, and you are SOL. Especially when there are only a few select channels that I like to watch...
Now the deal is about 5 yrs ago I had Cox install their digital product. Well all in all the guy who installed it for us put a code using the faceplate buttons on the box and voila we had almost everything except for pay per view.
not to mention they have to pay for the right to re-transmit the programming and networks they get off C-Band. then along come people that steal cable, ok so the cable company has to find a way to stop it, then the theif gets around it, this has gone on and on for years, snd the extra operating cost and lost revenue gets passed onto those of us who pay for our cable honestly. I sure as hell am not paying for all 100 something channels just so I can have the 5 that I like. The tv channels are trapped out so you cant watch them since you dont pay for them. 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.Now that was 5 years ago so it may not apply and I don't have the code and it was for a motorolla box.If any one can get the code plz post it may still work for some boxes.
