      IE 11 copy/paste problem

      It has come to our attention that people using Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11) are having trouble with copy/paste to the forum. If you encounter this problem, using a different browser like Firefox or Chrome seems to get around the problem. We do not know what the problem is, but it seems to be specific to IE 11 and we are hopeful that Microsoft will eventually fix it.

      UPDATE on Upgrade   02/07/2017

      We were somewhat delayed on getting the upgrade done, but it looks like it will now be done in the next few days or possibly even later today.   There is one change coming with the new upgrade that may affect people when they log in. There will no longer be separate Usernames and Display Names. Your Display Name will now be the only name you have for the forum and, if you used your Username to log in, you will now need to use your Display Name. It is likely that everyone who visits after the upgrade will need to log in again, so please keep this in mind.   Update again - Feb 7 - We have completed the main part of the upgrade and we are working to tweak settings for the site.  It will probably take us a while, but we will eventually settle down to the way we want it.  In the meanwhile, your posts should be secure, but the look of the forum and some functions may change over time.

Satellite channels on PC

4 posts in this topic

Ok, whats the real deal with this software that claims to be able to stream 1000's of channels from around the world to your PC for a one off payment. I have done some searching and some claim its 100% illegal but this one www.satellitetvtopc.com contradicts this. Is anyone using it?? Its it legal?? Is it worth it??

 

Cheers

This looks a great deal like SPAM... I will give you the benefit of the doubt, but note that SPAM is NOT tolerated on this forum... Any other posts even vaguely like this one and you will lose your privilege to post here...

Sorry that it appears to be spam, but its a legitimate question that I wnat answered so please leave it hear. Are there people out there using this program or anything else like it?? Some say its illegal but others, like the one on the link provided, say its perfectly legal. Please keep this on.

It is a scam... The page you refer to is an advertisement and they are offering to rip off dozens of companies that provide satellite TV services - does that sound even remotely likely to be legal to you?? Beyond the fact that it is clearly illegal if it is possible, it is not possible... The only way it might be possible would be to stream the satellite signals through an array or servers that provide the content... Such a satellite streaming service would have tremendous overhead and would charge at least as much as satellite services to get access... If you believe in the Easter Bunny and the tooth fairy, send them your money and then post back here about how great the service is... Meanwhile, keep in mind that most of the internet scams that make billions for criminals are dependent on people believing that they can get riches with little or no effort... Are you familiar with the Nigerian scam?? Phishing?? "You have won the lottery" that you didn't even enter??
