    Use a VNC App (best for me: PCanywhere) and just connect the cable to you tv tunner card (the one in you desktop) then remote access the desktop from the carpc.

    You could also use orb to broadcast your tv shows over the net.

    Unless someone is rebroadcasting a pirate signal in the area, those channels dont have broadcast license....

    Okay let me clear this WHOLE thing up, I was a linesman tech for AT&T Broadband and Comacast for three years. Not to come across as a dick, but most all of you are wrong to a degree. The channels that you do not subscribe to are scrambled, we all know what swiggle porn is. So this signal is descrambled in one of two ways so your TV can properly display a clear image. The first is a cable converter. We are all familiar with these, you either pay to rent one from the cable company(digital or analog) or you buy a black box and only descramble the analog channels(this can't do digital, binary code vs. wavelengths). The black box works by using a variable capacitor, so that it will adjust the incoming signal i.e. 603.9649412mHz (yes the frequencies are this specific!) to 603.9648407notice how close these are, as the output frequency that might match that of lets say channel 65 on the box. That frequency is then modulated into the frequency of channel 3. Basically what you're doing with any set top box is using it as the tuner, thus rendering the one built into your dormant (except for channel three if you are using the F-type connection. This is one way that it is made difficult, ever notice how you sometimes get it for a split second, thats because your acting as an antenna working with or against the signal. Other ways they will avoid unauthorized veiwing is by using "traps", these are nothing but filters that block out that extra noise on certian channel carriers. Other traps will be added to allow you to watch premium channels such as HBO without a converter, right Schuck ;-), and sometime both a converter and traps are needed, that is if you want VOD. So yes it is possible to get HBO, MTV2, etc on a TV w/o a converter. Depending on what system your cable company uses, IRC, HRC or STD you may use more of your TV, ever notice that when you program a TV that it usally goes up to 126 channels? Hacking a digital box is nearly impossible, some cracks have been done, on some brands of converters like SA's, but as a whole are very secure. And stealing from the Dish is wicked easy, a lot easier than not getting caught trying to hike a pole or busting open a pedestal/doghouse and getting a security sleve off and figuring out what line is yours!

    Think they are talking about over-the-air.

    she does not have cable, no cable box, descrambler, dish, anything remotely used to get cable, legit or not. All she has is this:

    Radio Shack antenna

    however, it does depend on the time of day she can receive those channels. She can pick them up better at night.
