Recently Adelphia sent us a letter that the package (Advantage Package) we were on was no longer being offered and they were switching us to a different package (which of course costs more....)
On this new package, the Digital Cable Box is itemized as a $4.50/month charge (in the past it was just one large lump sum)
I called Adelphia and enquired about using my own (compatible) Digital Cable box. I was thinking of a SA Explorer 8300 HD or similar. I was told it would not be a problem to use my own box.
However, here I am reading that the way these boxes work, Adelphia needs an encryption key from SA to use this box. Who is correct? Adelphia says it will work. AVS forum says it won't. Is Adelphia getting keys for foreign boxes from SA?
