This Sep 1983 CATV egress (Ch 4, zero-beat local off) was due to an
east-adjacent illegal tap (the days before Texas had enacted
theft-of-service statutes) http://www.qsl.net/w/wa5iyx//images/833311.jpg
The responding tech simply changed the 4-port terminal at the backyard
pedestal (service, underground, had only come to this area of town in
1981) to a 3-port. The perp/renters were evicted a month later - likely
for other reasons.
Most other serious CATV egress incidents around here have been due to
the classic "dog chewed cable" scenario (their work tickets actually
list that as an option!).
