Dear Ric ,

You actually need your CATV cable company to deal with the filters. Your level of service depends on the filters and if you've removed any filters or disabled them you would have broken the service agreement and should get penalized by the cable company. It is basically stealing because you'd be getting a level of service you did not pay for.
Hope this helps. Give your cable company a call, they should be able to answer any question about your particular filters.
