Motorola 514517-002-00 M-Card

I saw a Motorola 514517-002-00 M-Card MediaCipher Cable Card listed on eBay. Will this model work in my Tivo Premiere?

Very few cards are not stolen property of the cableco. May want to check that out first.

Most of the time, the cards have to be set up with the head end of the cable company so it is unlikely it will work out of the box...

They are very few cable companies that allow costumer owned cable card to be installed. The are not sold to the public. My advice is not to buy it from ebay you have a 98% chance it is stolen or never returned back to the cable company.

Cable card compatibility should match your Cable company's equipment too.

You want to find out what kind of cable cards they're giving out to subscribers at least.
