Seriously doubt you are going to find help with this here. Last I heard directv is pretty keen on suing people who steal their programming.

You say you want to decode DirectTV's signal?

If you have to decode it, that means its encrypted. When a company applies encryption to a product, I'm quite sure one of their primary intentions are to prevent theft of the encrypted product.

You say, "I now the signal is free"..


A free signal is when I can stick a piece of aluminum foil outside and hook it up to my television and pick up WJZ 13 out of Baltimore... That is a free signal..

So.. hopefully I can hit the reply button before this thread gets locked.. because that is where anything on this topic will go

Since it's free, just call Direct TV and they'll be only too happy to tell you how to put them into bankruptcy.

Been there, done that; Can't remember.
