Hey,

Does anyone use a starview box, just wondering where you get them from...do you just need a splitter attached to your virgin media cable coming in?

How much do these boxes cost, work well etc?

Cheers

+1 All but worthless now.

Linux based boxes might get use back in the future but will have to wait and see.

Basically virgin have changed the encryption. The new Nagra3 they are using is basically the same as sky. Nobody has broken this yet (it's all about time and resources) and there are other ways round it like card sharing (see google) which is used on sky and will probably come to cable too for people using linux boxes.

If you haven't guessed using boxes not authorised by the cable company is not allowed as is using card sharing services on sky.

If it's sport your after there are more legitimate ways to gain it if your prepared to invest in a big'ish satellite dish and equipment. Look out for guv's satellite thread in the misc.
