MRV between cablecard Premiere and OTA only Premiere

Thinking about getting a Premiere4 and moving the cablecard from my Premiere to the 4. The Premiere would then be OTA only. Any issues or concerns with streaming between them (will cablecard channels be copy protected and unwatchable on the original Premiere?)

I'd assume no issue - but want to make sure.

Depends on your provider. If there are no restrictions as long as both boxes are on your account, you should have no problem using MRS/MRV.

I've had no problems at all as long as the content is not restricted.

Although when I sold my last Lifetime Premiere, I put the cable card from that box in my monthly Premiere which was OTA only. When I get an IP STB that Premiere will go back to OTA only and I will turn in that cable card to save $4 a month of my FiOS bill.

You can stream to your hearts content. Transferring is where you have copy protection issues

You still can't stream Amazon downloaded content. It's restricted from streaming and transferring.

I was referring to cable/OTA programs which the OP was referring to
