    Using the cablecard menu on my orig S3 the firmware being reported for my two M cards is as follows:
    Card #2 FW Version: 03.31, 02.65, 03.25
    Card #1 FW Version: 02.01, -.-, 03.25

    Considering buying a Roamio but want to know if I'm going to be able to enjoy all 6 tuners. Tivo support says I need firmware 2.65 for Moto cards. So it appears the card #2 should work but not card #1, correct?

    I have TWC near Toledo OH and their support claims I can only receive 2 tuners on any CC but we all know how reliable they can be.

    Not sure about firmware level, but I have TWC in NYC and swapped out my series 3 for a Roamio.

    Kept one of the two cards and returned the other one. All six tuners work just fine.

    If you buy 1 roamio you only need 1 card so the one with the updated firmware should work fine.

    The other card in your S3 is likely a singlestream card so that is why the Firmware is so out of date.

    These are notes I took for Motorola cards based on other threads on this topic:

    Firmware required for 6 tuners:
    FW 2.65
    FW* 6.25

    CableCARD Part# should be greater than 514517-01x-00.
    Part# 514517-012-00 should be sufficient except for FiOS which apparently requires 514517-017-00

    Additionally if Tuning Adapter is required:
    For Motorola MTR700 you need platform version 01.37 to get 6 tuners.
    (Version info under Settings-Account & System Info-Tuning Adapter-Tuning Adapter Diagnostics-CODE MODULES)
