Found 9th Feb 2009
hey guys,

i've done some digging around this forum for non-standard virgin media cable boxes... can anyone comment (or PM me) with info as to what the current scene is? as I remember they disabled quite a few of the boxes last year some time?

Thanks!

i'm guessing the boxes regularly have firmware updates that unfries them though, no?

I heard they were offering £120 reward to people who forward details of anyone they know that has them.

Know a few people who have had them for a while but not my cup of tea

This is rubbish. They can't tell that you have a modded box and the signal is shared so they would fry your neighbours too.

They roll the codes so you have to input new keys now and again. Easy to do.

still against your T&C to use a non supplied box so they can terminate your contract instantly

which would be illegal.
and if you feel happy stealing cable services, thats fine but it can cost you dearly.
my former boss was prosecuted by Virgin Media for £40,000 and 300hrs community service.
cos thats how much they estimated he had done them out of, plus compensation for impacting the services of others by stealing.
