    It would take a second for the channel to scramble on Time Warner.

    So if you kept switching back and forth between channels quickly, you could actually catch a decent amount of the action.

    It was like stop animation porn.

    i had paragon cable then. before they merged with TWC. had physical filters attached to the back of the cable box. i just removed the barrel filter to get all the channels. when TWC bought them the korean grocery on bdwy sold modified cable boxes.

    That was a great solution until they did away with the cable boxes that had the sliding channel changer.
