Is this for real? I've read about bypassing filters to get more
channels in the US, but I always thought this was a hoax.
Over here the cable companies are already using second generation
encoders/decoders in which the video and audio are digitally
encoded/decoded. This system hasn't been fully cracked yet (AFAIK),
recovering the sounds seems to be the biggest problem.
Before that, a circuit to restore sync and colorburst was already
necessary to make a coded TV channel give a decent picture.
