Question about Televison & Video
Can you tell me if i buy one of these off e-bay, will it work when i hook it up to a tv. i already have one in my living room. The wife wants one in her sewing room. but comcast wants an extra $25/mo. There are several of these boxes on e-bay saying they are for comcast providers, but will it really work without comcast knowing? Thanks for any help...Jim
You are all wrong.
You can purchase one off eBay or directly from Motorola.
Comcast will treat it the same way they treat Tivo boxes. You will
need to lease the M-Card from Comcast for around $2 a month. They will
even come out and install it.
The same thing goes if you have a new TV with an M-Card slot.

I just bought a Motorola DCH 3416 from ebay and picked up an M card from Comcast and after one hour of being on the phone with the Philippines CS Rep for Comcast, pairing all the numbers for Cable Card, Data and Host ID's and waiting for code module to count down, IT WORKED!!! No On Demand or HBO (which we subscribe to) but all other channels YES. It works!!!

It will not work without being provisioned by comcast. I am a technician for comcast and have little doubt they will provision it at no charge.

$25 a month? that's not correct. they're $16/mo.
