My personal experience has been rather sad to say the least-I ordered a cable card and software, however my cable provider (optimum) after telling me they dont limit people using their own hardware, apparently encrypted about half the channels. I could get like say, the weather channel and all the basic channels, but the channels I liked like USA, spike and CBS was locked and there was no way around it, other then them installing their cable card. Eh no thanks.

Thank you, for your comment. I have absolutely no experience with using sites, such as, SatelliteDirect.com, which advertises they can give you hundreds of TV channels for one low price. This sort of advertisement reminded me of a Snake Oil salesman. LOL Usually, if it sounds to good to be true, it usually is. I certainly didn't want to give up $50.00 without first asking others to give their options of this type of software.

It will work with some companies, but id ask the specific company and perhaps some of their customers before doing anything

Can't really trust reading customer reviews since you don't know their source.
To bad they don't give service on a trial basis. Give folks a chance to try out their software. Seems it would be a better sales strategy. But, on the other hand, if the software is a crap. They don't get paid.
