Out of the Blue

Happy Vesak to all who are celebrating, as today commemorates the birth and enlightenment of the Buddha.

Meanwhile, far from enlightened, I am a bit dazed and confused from over-the-counter cold medications. And these are not even the 'do not drive or operate heavy machinery' sort of meds, so I guess I'm just susceptible to being addled. I know there are kids that abuse these products, but for the life of me, I can't see the appeal.

and I am already paying for them, so it is legal for me to use another box, not just one provided by Comcast….I just do not want to buy something if it can be done in software!
If there is software for it, the developers most likely would have to pay a license fee to include a digital cable descrambler, so I doubt you'd be able to use software instead of buying something.

I haven't actually looked into something like this for myself since I got a dish a few years ago, but there weren't any free options (I was looking for linux or windows software) and with the current set of laws, I'd be surprised if that has changed since then.

Holy crap, look at me posting like a non-lurker!
