There are posts indicating that some cable companies are sending unencrypted locals that can be received by intgrated sets that support QAM decoding (Mits & Hitachi)


The St Louis cable company, Charter, will begin carrying HD in the next month.


Is it possible for the HiPix to receive/decode these QAM broadcasts.



If not now, could this be done with a software upgrade.


Thanks

Dave,


This was posted over in the HDTV forum. Seems that cable operators are trying to make you rent the digital cable box to decode QAM.

"I don't know if this is old news, but I heard from a Comcast CSR today that the company will begin encrypting the 2 network affilate HD signals it carries in the Baltimore area, so people can't use Mits QAM tuners and simply demod off the cable."
