Is there a cable box that could be use on your cable-ready tv without using the av function and at the same time be able to switch channels through your cable box not on your tv? thanks

Concast provided their subscribers with up to two free when they went all-digital.

yes, they exist. Are you wanting to tune in digital cable?

not really, most are still in analog back here. i need that type of cable box because of our project which is an automated antenna system that automatically seeks for the best signal strength and quality. were planin on tapping in the AGC for the strength... ok thanks for the replies. l already bought one here.. .

sounds like a fun project. I did something similar at work once trying to gauge signal strength on some mobile radio.

You could also use an older VCR. if you can find one that used through-hole PCB construction it seems like it would be easier to build the hack off of the circuit board.
