You are asking for advice on how to break the law. I think you should ask your question on a less respectful site.  The experts here are to help people with computer problems not to teach some one how to STEAL

just my two cents

What you are asking to do via SOFTWARE would be tough and slow anyhow. There is a reason the descrambling is done via HARDWARE.

Anyhow, I don't think I would like to be the person to answer this seeing how cable companies LOVE to prosecute...

an addition 2 cents thrown in,

Deathboy -

It's not a hard question at all.  You ring up the cable company and subscribe to their service.  They give you a little box with a smartcard; you give them some money.
