I got a carrier and login info

2 posts in this topic

So I was wondering what my tv sat receiver does when I buy a pay per view movie. It first dials a number with his own modem, which I guessed using dtmf decoder software..

After dialing that number with my PC, Hyperterminal shows me a login screen.

Later I hex edited a firmware dump of the receiver and found the username and password it uses to connect, and checked them later. They are valid, but after the login screen, apparently nothing happens next.

I tried making a new internet connection with that number and login info, but the connection fails.

I think it's because I'm not using the correct protocol...

Any ideas on how should I continue? Thanks in advance.

The modem in the cable box could be sending a break or something to get the distant end equipment to respond. Next time you order a movie, try recording the modem conversation. I've heard there's ways you can play it back to one in silent answer mode.
