Pairing a CableCard to Another Device

I'm currently using a HTPC with a Ceton InfiniTV 6 tuner installed for my DVR needs. Long story short, I decided to get rid of the HTPC and get a TiVo Roamio Pro.

My question is, will I be able to take the CableCard from the Ceton, insert it into the TiVo Roamio, and call Comcast to re-pair it to the new device or will I have to go get a new CableCard all together?

It just needs to be re-paired.

If you have Comcast On-Demand in your area (some do, some don't), Comcast will also have to add a Tivo billing code to your account before On-Demand will work.

I see, thanks!

Does the CableCard pairing department of Comcast usually handle that?

Yes, I just did the same think last week. Called the cablecard number for Comcast that is listed on TiVo's website, took about 10 minutes to get it working. When I plugged the cablecard into my tivo all but the premium channels worked right away.
