The legalities should be the other thing that is keeping you from buying it as well. :shock:
Cable is hard to hack because it has 2-way communication. That and the cable company can detect leaks or someone getting free cable onsite without even going into the house.
If your looking for free tv satellite is the way to go, not that I endorse it. It has one way communication unless you plug your phone into the receiver and there is no way of detecting any leaks.
good luck

Hi, #1 if you tell the cable company that you are using this, they will charge you for all the channels, even if you don't get all of them. You may as well not buy the Decrambler and just pay for the service.
#2 hook your cable to your VCR and the Descambler to the VCR this signal
can't be detected Because as far as the cable company is concerned the VCR blocks Unscrambled signals... :roll: hope this helps ?
