Uh FaxCap, how can you tell from the outside that the signal is pirated?

It's not that hard to detect for Dish setups. For BEV, impossible to tell from the outside. Even if the dish doesn't say Bell, it doesn't mean it's pirated.

Your solution would last as long as it takes to get the government (CRTC) to stop Bell (and others) from the phone line requirement. I am not a pirate nor a hacker and I do not have a land line at home or at my business office. I use a cell phone which will not work to communicate to Bell from the IRD. I use a wireless card in my notebook for internet so that is out as well.

I know many, many people who have dumped their land line. Many others are considering the same thing. At my business (more than 10,000 employees), the percentage of cell phone only has jumped to 20%. You can have a simple cell and a land line or you can have a fully integrated Blackberry with no land line.

Just my $0.02 worth...

Doesn't the very fact that nobody has a clue how many pirates BTV has/had prove that the number doesn't matter?
This makes absolutely no sense. The fact that we don't know how many thieves exist does not make crime irrelevant.

The original topic of this thread was whether the card swap was complete and that has been answered so I am closing as I am not interested in listening to people rationalize satellite piracy.

Regarding the card swap.
  • Bell has now moved to N3 Encryption for virtually every channel but a few barker and information channels. (presumably to inform users who still haven't switched cards.
  • Using FTA boxes to get BellTV is effectively shut down.
  • Users who never made the switch need to contact Bell
