If you have just "sorted" your V+ then you want to put the filter on and not take it off!!! If it was your subbed V+ then you shouldn't have messed anyways...If it isn't your V+ then if you order a on demand movie somebody else get's charged for it...And let's be honest is On Demand really worth it?

Who knows !
Do the job properly and just cut talkback inside the box. Forget about any possibility of VOD because you are just causing hassle for other people !

ordering on an unsubbed box is asking for trouble. i have a 50db filter and it never comes off. the only 2 reasons i have it are 1. im lazy and couldnt be arsed taking the box to bits and 2.i have seen posts that claim the talkback mod has caused problems with some box's

dudes its not a subbed box a guy at work sold it me as it was of no use to him.... just thought i would ask as i have only been told of this filter method just wanted to know if it was possible to order a on-demand thats all!! so this is a no go area as u guys have said and would he really get billed for it thats crazy dude... anyways im not a big fan of on-demand but its there i guess when theres nothing else to watch.

hi just been reading on a few other forums and there are people there that have conected switches to the talkback track and left them hangging out the box so when they order a film from on demand they just filck the switch then flick it back after they have orded so im guessing that some people are willing to take the risk and its working for them i would like to know if anybody has tried this method or any kind of filter method ?

not that i have known of a case of this happening if you order a ppv from a modded box you are letting the cc know what area you are in and possibly giving them a way to trace where you are. also the previouse owner of the box in question may get billed for whatever you order. besides all this eventually the cc will blacklist your box anyway so that you cant order anything. personnaly as i am sure many other people on here agree just use the filter or cut the talkback why let the cc know that you are out there???

its a fault with the software mate if you order a film with the filter on it wont let you and you will have the return path light blinking at you all the time aswell
