Wgauci, I guess I wasn't as clear as I should have been. I was wondering about the activation and deactivation of a radio (upon payment or nonpayment of a subscription).
Tim, do you know how that actually works? If I am a tuner, what is it that a satelite signal can do to me when it calls my name (as it were) that would make me start producing decrypted sound?
Then, for deactivation, does the satellite have to call my name forever for me to be certainly deactivated? How would the satellite know that I have been listening, and thus deactivated -- so does that data stream have to just grow and grow and grow?
Oh, the puzzles of life....
