All, some of you will be familiar with the level of experience I bring to the Afterdawn forum. The rest will just wonder what my grievance is. So I will lay it straight on the plate. In the good old days we had the various boxes that decrypted channels using keys and all was good. A simple matter of entering new keys and all the channels cleared once again. So this was great and all were happy. But do understand one thing about the keys solution. It was impossible to track any box user. You could simply stick up an MMDS dish or connect your box to a cable/satellite system, enter the keys and voila, the channels were opened. So now we have the infamous SV6, Kryptview, Dreambox etc.. solutions. Did you all notice that you must now be connected to the internet to open channels. The reason is because you must be connected to a public share server to get the decryption keys necessary to unscramble channels. Have any members seen in recent past the amount of public servers that have been shut down by our police forces. Are these members aware that their IP address are sitting on these public shares, and by IP addresses I mean in effect your postal address. As my final say I would like for you, the user, to understand the danger you are putting yourself in. For starters there is no question that this forum is policed by UPC, Sky and the likes. The fact that the 1 year guarantee on the SV6 turned out to be some very short months of service proves this. The Kryptview will last little longer. But it is not a matter of how long they last. It is more a matter of the worry associated with individuals private details being stored on these large public share computers. My warning is simple. You share with who you know if you know how to do so. Otherwise you buy a valid subscription. Else you pay the penalty. The good days are over. You are no longer anonymous. Having spent years studying this area I now subscribe to a a full TV package. I hope you have the sense to do likewise. If you wish to continue and flaunt the laws by posting your participation in illegal shares on such an obvious site as Afterdawn then this is your choice. You have now been warned. If you do not wish to take this warning seriously you do so at your own peril.
