I have to ask if you've  tried the obvious- iis your home wired for 
cable?  If it is just plug in a cable tuner (i.e.  a VCR).  Every 
place  I've lived the cable network has been broadcasting a decent 
number of channels unscrambled.  Normally the local channels and a 
handful of others (CSPAN and the like).
Arguing with an engineer is like wrestling with a pig in mud.
After a while, you realize the pig is enjoying it.
