Maybe - but let's just get this straight - I'm neither advocating illegal 
action, nor condoning it. It is certainly illegal to attempt to use such 
machinery to avoid subscription charges. It is not however *illegal* to use 
unofficial hardware per se (ie, to get channels for which you are lawfully 
entitiled to). It may be a contract violation which will entitle Virgin Media 
to stop service to a location.

Providing SoftCAM information and all that stuff is certainly out of order. I 
don't approve of such behaviour, and apologise if people got the impression I 
was punting it.
