For those of you with Comcast, Charter, etc. cable Tv service, check the back of your Moxi DVR's and you will notice a CableCard slot. A CableCard will decrypt non-QAM channels now that most cable companies have gone to a scrambled digital signal which forces you to rent their cable box. A CableCard will allow you to use your Moxi DVR as a cable box, so you no longer need the cable company's box to watch TV.
CableCards are supplied by your cable company and will usually rent from $2 to $4 per month depending on your cable company. Don't bother purchasing your own CableCard from eBay because your cable company won't activate it unless it's obtained from them. If they allowed you to own your own card they wouldn't be able to get any rental income.
