Arduino cablebox?

Hello guys and gals.
I have been searching the web for.weeks to see if anyone has built or even if its possible. I am looking for links or suggestions if this is even possible. Can arduino be used as a cable box like the rasp pi is there anything like that yet?
Has anyone built something like that. Or can anyone offer a hack or idea for a build.

I certainly hope you are not contemplating obtaining cable TV access without paying the cable company for it. I had a customer several years ago who wrote a book on the subject and aided others to do just such an act. We placed the surface mount components on circuit boards for him. Cash prepay only!

He may still be in prison in Massachusetts.
