first of all, this isn’t a ‘how can I get free cable?’ thread, so save all your sanctimonious preaching.
personally, I’ve got dish — this is some story I heard from a friend of mine, and I’m curious.
there are all these ‘stealth’ boxes, or basically home brewed cable boxes out there to rip off free cable, right?
I heard that cable companies are now sending some kind of “surge” that fries these boxes.
is this true, and how exactly does this work, because it sounds like a crock to me.
could they target this, or would it have to be some ‘wide beam’ thing, and if so, why wouldn’t it harm the legal boxes?
