I have the cable plugged straight into my tv. After the channel scan, I see "hbo hd" in the channel list, but when I try to change to that channel it won't. To be clear, it's not that I don't have picture on that channel. It won't even go to that channel. It will go to the channels above and below it.
There are no traps/filters on my line outside.
Is there some way to remedy this? If I could get free hbo that would be pretty cool.

Cable has met the digital age. Most require a set top box to select a channel. Deja vu, but better quality.

That in HBO's opinion, would be theft of service.

I just download the HBO shows I want to watch free from one of the many link gathering sites, but that's also considered a gray area.

If by gray you mean... clearly illegal, then yes.
