Moving cable box

01-30-2009, 04:56 PM

I have a cable box with Time warner and was wondering if i'd be able to bring my cable box to my friends place to watch the superbowl in HD.

Didn't know if this is possible or not

If your friend does not have HD service, it probably won't work. However, there is a chance that the IP for the box is static, and might work at your friend's house. Move it and see what happens.

how far apart are the houses? does he have cable service at all? If he doesn't it will not work.

I have heard it will never work. Invite your friend over to your place.

Doesn't matter if its HD or not .. If he has cable the it should work unless he lives in a different city.

If your friend has an HDTV tell him to connect up a cheap antenna to the TV and you can watch it without a cable box. The superbowl isn't on a cable TV only channel.

If your friend has local cable through the same company as you, odds are good it will work. Ethics wise? Have your friend go to your house.
