View Full Version : Cable Descrambler for $100 a good deal?

Not a deal per se...more of a question. I see plenty of these ClearMax 2000 descramblers on Fleabay for about $100...anybody have any info on these? They sound way too good to be true...but if they are in fact what they claim, then they're one heck of a deal.

That price is a good deal depending on where you live. For example were I used to be from (NYC) they sold for about $225.00. Where I live now (middle of nowhere in VA) they sell for about $150.00. So $125 direct is a good price just be careful your cable company isn't fully digital and you'll be fine.

Ok, no deal, so why is this here?

i hope this is not going to be another "Ethical question before posting cable deal" thread deal http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/frown.gif

Please stop that ethical crap. A deal is a deal so I don't think we should determine if it's ethical or not. If we are truly so ethical here then a lot of the deals shouldn't be here from the start. ie. Staples, etc.
As far as for deal, I'm curious myself. Anyone know about this descrambler?

I would like to know also. I have no ethics http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/tongue.gif

you can also get h cards for sattelite as well as the clearmax.. this dude bcpaint seems to sell them all the time on ebay, or direct for $125 (i've seen them for double)

Maybe we should just open an ethical or rather a confessional forum for those who feel guilty for taking advantage/stealing stuff.

It was mentioned in one of the previous responsesby (k28la), Satellites use H cards/H access cards to allow all DSS systems to access all chanels which is known as a test mode. There is no "generic" H card only those for specific brands and models some companies even charge to reprogram your card. Again when you use a descrambler or all Access cards, it is your responsibility to notify the cable/dss company that you are accessing their signal or you are in violation of your service agreement.
