Thanks for your reply.... as it was, after a few more calls to offshore customer service, one of them said there were "6 Cable Cards in Philadelphia!" So I hustled down to the office before they closed at 6, and got my M-card. Three phone calls to the activation center later and my 10-week odyssey was over - I have a working Tivo/DVR with all channels.
Of course, the fact that I had to wait 2 months for any cablecards to show up in the 5th largest city in the country -- and home to Comcast -- is ridiculous. Added to that, many buildings (mine included) forbid dishes and FIOS is not available for much of the area, so Comcast has a virtual monopoly.
OK, off the soapbox. At least i can get On Demand.
