just b/c you have the download file doesnt mean it works on the desktop you install it on.. it will still reject you from watching live tv on it b/c every desktop has an external monitor attached to it..
the point of my post was to show that a moderately large company like Cablevision, shouldnt be using scripts that can easily be circumvented, in an attempt to prevent a user from downloading the application to a desktop computer.
you can easily enough download the file on your laptop and send the file to your desktop using various methods to send the file if a user isnt capable of circumventing Cablevisions "detection" script.
whether or not the application will work on a desktop is irrelevant to an advanced PC user, since an advanced PC user can obtain the tools necessary to effectively "debug" the application on the laptop, collect the needed variables and information and create their own "application" or modify variables on the desktop PC in order to make the application work on a desktop PC.
there is always a work-around.
its safe to assume that Cablevision will obviously produce revised versions of this application in time, that will attempt to be "stronger" at preventing an advanced PC user from "debugging" it.--
