I'm currently using an AirStar-HD5000AV to handle digital. When I scanned
my Time Warner cable (Milwaukee) I didn't get a hit on Discovery channel.
If you happen to find a time they are reproducibly unencrypted please let
us know. I can then run a scan to find its frequency and service ID. It
would be real nice to record this series.

I'm certainly looking forward to seeing that post!
