Watching out of region Hockey! ( SD only)

Just thaught i'd post that motorola has to have the worst software/Set top box's. Just by changing the channel up and down fast the receiver got confused and it shows Sportsnet Hockey games that should be blacked out my region lol ( watching sens game) If i just go to it like normal channel and wait it gives the Blackout message, but if i channel up/down fast and back it gets confused and ignores the blackout message. Another alternate is Press Guide and and it shows it on the small screen inside the IPG. Just thought i'd pass along this little trick to my fellow Hockey lovers who are to cheap for CI!

I thought it was kind of strange that I was getting sound for the game but a blackout message for the video. I tried switching channels quickly and there was the video!!

Thanks for the heads up.
