I'm a Comcast SF Bay customer, but I believe the "UNKNOWNS" are the
"on-demand" streams to boxes that have requested them.  Nice to see they're
not ALL pr0n :)  These show up unencrypted - my completely un-informed guess
is that since they are random and unscheduled (at the whims of your Comcast
subscriber neighbors), Comcast sees no need to encrypt them.
