Too bad…comcast encrypts…

At this price it’s cheaper than the majority of tuners out there, and I heard you can mod this a little to make it sweeter.

Let’s say (hypothetically) that you’re a cable subscriber and want to (hypothetically) pull in HD channels. Are you out of luck?

My ideal setup is to hook this from my (unencrypted) cable to my wireless router, and on the other end via wifi, a laptop running Vista WMC. Will this hold up over Wifi? How well does it work with WMC / an Xbox streaming program?

it’d be better if someone did the price stamps consistently, because if i check this day later, i’ll have no idea how much this was…

Nice invocation of Shadowrun in the lead-in.

They should give him a title under his S/N like the Woot Mods…
Let’s think of a name…
