Dish / Bev Jtag unit?

Techgadgetz sells all sorts of things like cheap cell phone jammers, but what really caught my eye was this JTAG programmer for satellites — do people really hack their sat dishes with these? It unlocks free channels? Post up in he comments –

A Jtag is simply a device which communicates with your satellite receiver unit. It acts as an interface between your computer and satellite receiver. Simply unplug your satellite receiver, connect the wires to your receiver’s jtag port as shown in the instructions, using either tape or just touching them with a soldering iron (recommended), clip the alligator clip to any ground point of your receiver, and plug the DB25 connector into your parallel port of your computer! It’s that simple. To make it communicate with your computer, you will need the program jkeys. This will be emailed to you after your purchase.
