I wish you where right on the anti piracy messures.. its nice in theroy but most everyone I know has a piret DTV access card..
That is why I wont sell them.. if Siris uses the same technowledgy we are in trouble..


SIRI and XMSR have FCC licenses to operate on the S-Band Frequency. Direct TV also uses this freq (I believe). Although it is technically possible to pirate DTV's signal (you have to have the right equipment and knowledge at a level that VERY FEW folks attain), they are constantly sending a "chirp" signal down the line (like they did before the Super Bowl) that blasts those pirates' equipment. When I say blast, I mean BLAST. The "chirp" signal literally RUINS and DESTROYS the pirates equipment. I suspect the folks at SIRI and XMSR will do the same.
