[mythtv-users] Need advice: NYC = Scrambled Analog?

I currently have Time-Warner digital cable with their Scientific
Atlanta Explorer 8000 POS PVR. You'd think that after 3 years of this
box being on the market they could have worked some bugs out. They
didn't and it forced me to say, hey I could build a better PVR. So now
that I've built my kick-ass MythTV box with multiple tuners I find that
I can only view network stations.
What to do...
If I switch to analog service, T-W tells me that I'll still need a
cable box. Is it true that T-W NYC analog is all scrambled and/or is
this just their way of getting more money by renting boxes?
I've read on the list that some people in other locations with T-W
digital were able to get analog channels as an add-on. This doesn't
seem to be available in NYC (at least its not advertised, anyone know
Is there any feasible way to descramble the entire analog signal before
it gets to the tuner cards?
Is there any way to get this working besides getting multiple analog
cable boxes and multiple IR-Blasters?
I'd appreciate any help people can give, otherwise look for my MythTV
box on eBay...
