ive never heard of cable that was not encrypted.  usually the only
channels not are NOT are the ones available ota (over the air) I believe
the cable companies are  bound by law to provide them un
encrypted......thats if they want to follow the law anyway.

google for qam,  clear qam, qam tuning etc.
