    Hey guys, here's my situation. I called Cox today and upgraded my
    cable TV to the premium service, which includes all of the premium
    channels. I did this because I want to watch the Suns game tonight
    (5/2/07) that starts at 7:30pm. They said that they probably won't be
    able to make it out today to take the filter off, but I REALLY want to
    watch the game! Does anybody have any suggestions for me? I tried
    telling them I would pay extra to have them come out today, and even
    tried getting the number to individual tech's that could come out and
    do it and I would pay them directly! They said no, lol. So does
    anybody have any ideas?

    Find a nice, comfortable pub with game on. Have a
    lovely beverage and enjoy the game.

    I would definitely go to a bar, but I'm only 20. On playoff games
    they don't let anybody under 21 in, because they know they can put a
    21+ in each seat, and they will actually buy the expensive drinks.
    Any other suggestions? lol
     

  4. Learn to call sooner next time. There are safety and liability
    reasons not to do work outside normal business hours, or to give out the
    personal information on ANY employee. The day's schedule is usually set
    several days in advance to allow the most efficient routing of all
    service trucks. unless they get a cancellation when a truck is near
    your location its damn difficult to change the schedule.

    Yeah of course I realize they aren't going to change their schedules
    to accomadate one customer - it was just a rant man. I know I should
    have called sooner, but I didn't, so it is what it is.

    So back on track - any ideas? I looked up how to do it myself, but
    I'm not really into breaking laws

    You have to have a tech come out to enable more channels ?

    It's all done by talking (electronically) to the STB's smartcard over here (UK).

    Yeah they have to come out and remove an rf notch filter from the line
    that blocks channels 22-78.

    I think my best option is the Cox technician that lives down the
    street, I will let ya know
     

  9. The filter is outside on a pole, or in a pedestal. Its federal laws
    you would be breaking if you tamper with it. There are special tools
    required to remove the filter without damaging the connectors.
