They only block access to their own modems. So if you purchase your own, they will not block it.
Because every customer has to call in with the MAC, pretty sure they have a way to note it's a customer modem, not a TWC modem. It's not like it's magic, they probably have a flag in their billing system (so they don't have to pay the lease fee either) that carries over into bin files and other information in the modem.
How did you know?
