The Art of Cable Descrambling





If you have cable TV but are not fortunate enough to have the



premium services, here is a simple way to pickup Cinemax, the Movie



Channel, Showtime, the Disney Channel, and any other service that



appears as a fuzzy picture (one that you can almost get clearly by



fine tuning).





This method also works on channels that appear as a lined



flashing screen that produces a beeping sound. These channels are



not truly scrambled, which entails a random sync pulse or a coded



signal, but instead a garbage transmission is sent at the same



frequency. Therefore, in order to receive the movie services



clearly, you must filter out the garbage.





Here is a simple way to do this:





1) Examine the back of your TV set. Find the VHF antenna



terminals (these are the antenna terminals that the cable



service is hooked up to). Get a piece of antenna wire



about 3 feet long. Strip one end of the wire and attach it



to the VHF terminals along with the cable.





2) Tune in to one of the movie services and adjust the fine



tuner until you get the cleanest picture.





3) Cut off about 1/4 inch of the antenna wire and adjust the



fine tuner. Continue to do this until you get a nearly



perfect picture (NOTE: You shouldn't have to cut off more



than 6 inches of the antenna wire).





4) Get a piece of aluminum foil and wrap it around the antenna



wire. Slide it up and down until you have a perfect



picture.





It sounds complicated, but it's actually very simple and effective.
