I seriously miss back in the day when HBO, Showtime, Pay Per View and others we're scrambled and I had my nice blackbox hooked up to my cable box that descrabled the picture for me. But now scrambled channels are no longer availible because our cable company is now all digital. At least all the new channels and premium and pay per view, sports, porn, etc...over 400 channels of stuff i cannot see unless i chose to waste money every month. So my blackbox is worthless. I wanna get into "decrypting" my digital cable. But totatly clueless...i have my digital cable boxes that Adelphia provided with me...which is good for the music choices and Digital Basic. Is it easy like it was with scrampled channels to unblock these digital channels so i get everything? What's involved and such because i wanna know where i can learn as much as possible to doing this.

im with ya on that man, i used to have 3 boxes and they worked until they switched over to digital and redid the cabling to fiber-optic. Whatever they use must be pretty difficult because i havent heard of anyone boxing it yet..but im sure someone out there has figured it out. The only thing i can think of is if they do something like satellite, switching signals ect..except they dont have to fry illegal cards. I have a few sources at the cable company and i know a few of there technicians...i will try to talk some info out of them and get back to you.

what you need is a digital positive trap.

a trap is a addon to your cowax. a possitive one is put on at the Cable CO and negitive ones are put on at your house/apartment/condo/whatever. a possitive one will open everything up and you get to watch anything and everything you want, while a negitive one will close off certian channels. i found a few neg traps that block channels 21,22, and 41 and its on the trap that they say what chan they will block. all of the spam for digital cable descrablers are poss traps that hook up between your wall and your cable box.

this is what a trap looks like

and this is what a possitive trap does
and neg traps
