    What about hacking Pay-TV? Anyone hacked a Pay-TV before? (so that we can watching Live Channels worldwide for free)

    It used to be quite easy to do until they made the smartcards harder to clone. You should give us some more info. I am sure there are different systems in place worldwide.

    In the states we can still use FTA with ihubs to recieve all of Dishnetwork. Rumour is DTV is hacked but very underground. Digital set cable boxes are different algorythyms from city to city and havent had much luck breaking them. Tv hacking was a big hobby of mine back in DTV days but with new laws etc i just kinda fell out of it.

    Going back 12 or so years ago, We got Austar and my dad watched the technician setup. For some reason he could only get Optus, dad being the amazing observer watched him put in the Optus code and we got an extra 9 channels :D
