    Packet-Sniffing Cabe TV

    I read in 2600 that someone wanted to try and packet-sniff a cable-tv wire. Is it possible to intercept the wire? If so, then can I save those packets then re-build them and send them to a tv? I'm just wondering because it would be pretty cool to "tape" your favourite shows using this method. And you could just carry the show on a CD and take it almost anywhere...

    I think so but the digital signals that you receive from the Rogers' Cable box can be sniffed I think.
