Re: This is an encrypted channel

Hello hbennett,
When looking at cable TV some of the channels are encoded (arranged digitally) to disallow access to the content on that channel.  This is true in the case of encrypted channels, the cable company has taken that channel and through an encrypting algorithm made that channels content inaccessible to you. The only legal way to see that channel is to pay the cable company or content provider for that service (channel). I hope this helps.
Thank you, Shuttle83

Can not get any HD channels since we tuned in 76FLIX used to until did this.

Your carrier may have changed that channel to an encrypted/paid channel you don't currently subscribe to.

Add channels

Because thats all your TV can see is the feed out the cable box displays which in the US is channel 3. All cable companies encrypt their channels now so you have to have a cable box on every tv

What is No CI Module ?


CI stands for common interface, there will be a slot on the side of your tv for a CI Module to be inserted, this allows you to view encrypted channels (such as ESPN) that you have to pay for using servces such as topup tv (uk).

It sounds like you have being trying to watch a encrypted channel without a CI Module inserted, this would most likely be the cause of the error message you are receiving.

Hope this helps

What is an fta lock

FTA means "Free to Air"
It mostly means your unit can't do decoding of encrypted channels, and is locked to FTA.
It may also be if your unit was sold by a specific provider that is is locked to their own channels.

How do i decrypt digital channels? This messages keeps coming up, "this channel is encrypted"

You can ONLY view those channels IF you have a subscription to them.. IE: SKY TV etc. Otherwise you will have to watch Freeview if you have that.

How can i watch cable tv.

I assume you are not trying to steal service, that you just want to use your cable signal on a TV without using a cable box. The NTSC (analog) and clear QAM (digital) signals will work on many recent TVs. Encrypted signal require a box from your cable company. BTW, the cable company are not allowed to encrypt local channels but will certainly do it for all premium channels and may do it for all digital channels except the locals. This assumes you bought a TV with QAM.
