Tivo and cablecard(s)

I currently have 2 Premiere Tivos that are networked via my network. Up to this point I have been just watching OTA with an antenna in my attic. And for most of my limited watching it works fine but one local station has pixelation just around sunset so I am looking into signing up with Comcast and this leads me to the question of cablecard(s).

The basic question is that if I have a cablecard in one Tivo and am able to record and save shows there, does anyone know if I will be able to then transfer them to the other Tivo without having a cablecard in that one?

Both Tivos are activated and I can transfer or watch shows between them now.

You should be able to as long as the shows don't have the copy protect bit set by the cable provider.

If Comcast copyprotects nearly everything like TWC does you'll still be able to stream room to room

Comcast doesn't, there are only 2 MSOs that are consistent in their dickishness regarding flags, TWC and Frontier FiOS. There are some smatterings of extra protected channels in major cities like NYC but it's rare if it's not Frontier or TWC.

Before you sell your soul to Comcast... have you considered an amplifier for your antenna?
