Swapping Cablecards between TiVos

I currently have a TiVo Premiere that is paired with a cablecard (Comcast). I need to test out a TiVo HD unit to ensure it works. That said, I will be removing the cablecard from the Premiere and pairing it with the HD for a short while. Will I be able to then pair it back to the Premiere and not have any problems (like the recordings getting erased)?

The Tivo system doesn't care, but don't know if Comcast's system is going to throw a curve with the re-pairing within such a close time frame. I'd ask their CC support first.

I didn't even think about that. Thanks for the heads up!

Aisde from the cc interface itself I would think you could test most THD function with OTA or in-the-clear QAM programming and no CC.
