Free comcast on demand!!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I just got the haupage HVR-2250 and wanted to advise any looking at it that it's great. I also got a crazy unexpected bonus with it.

I CAN WATCH OTHER PEOPLE'S ON DEMAND BRODCAST!!

I don't think it's neccesarily related to having this particular tuner card. Rather any card that can decode HD. I also can't guarantee everyone will get this little bonus, because it would depend on whether your cable company scrambles the QAM brodcast.

For the moment it seems comcast in atlanta doesn't. So I am able to see:
1.Local broadcast in HD
2.Other people's (i.e. my neighbors) ON DEMAND shows.

for the cost of the $18.95 basic package.

This is not a rip off or some kind of illeagle hack. I have done nothing outside of my home to in anyway steal cable. All I did was plug the coax cable into my tuner card and there it is. Pretty cool.

My neighbors were watching National Treasure last night, but I think they went to the bathroom or something because they paused the movie for like 10 min. then they came back.

I get that too on my TV. I browse through the channels and usually see semi-decent movies and TV shows, and the very occasional porno.

Lol. They scramble it around here but I used to get my local stations in HD and a few others. And I think that's so funny that you can see what other people watch.. kind of makes you wonder how secure your privacy is.

I have the same thing! On my HDTV, I get to watch other people's On Demand stuff. I see when they rewind, fast forward, pause, etc. Lol! I also have the basic package.
