i cant deny that cablecards suck but when the new TV companies are forced to use encrypted QAM by the broadcasters you sort of have no choice but to use it and the thing about the decoder cards they are pretty much none existance.

ps: IPTV is worse when trying to do the same things
i dont know about that, ive been doing it now for several years and i have found it to be indispensible with my work schedule and the quality is very good depending on what your watching.
