Right I Have A Motorola Surfboard Cable Modem but I am told this can run linux on it.
I have a few questions regaurding using this to receive sky and cable channels (for fun ;p) I know it possesses the nesecarry f-type connectors but I am ot sure if the hardware itself is capable of decoding the TV streams.
I am willing to do the programming but do not want to waste my time if the hardware simply is not capable of deciphering the signal
not hardware deciphering but I know some cards have limits on their relyably usable frequencies . I am just thinking about this because it is apparently a 400mhz processor which is much more powerful than a dbox and I think could make up for any lost video card functionality. I would want to use modified dbox code mainly to get the signal decipher it and send it out over the network like a streaming sky server
