    They can be transferred, but the CableCard will need "paired" to the new box. This does not require a tech visit, you just have to call the TWC National CableCard hotline at 1-866-606-5889. See here.

    The TWC CableCARD self-install number is: 866-606-5889 as given in post #2 here. There is another TWC national CableCARD support (NCCS) number that is good for general CableCARD and Tuning Adapter support: 866-532-2598.

    Maybe both numbers go to the same place -- I don't know. I know the NCCS number keeps late hours and Saturday hours. It has always been said the NCCS number should be called only after trying local support, but there are numerous reports of people being allowed to call it directly and being helped.
