    Hi everyone... Do i need a new cable card or are there any benefits to getting one as I move from Tivo Roamio to the latest Bolt+ 4K? My card is at least 5 years old on Verizon Fios - it works fine but not sure if i'd get a better picture with a newer one. Thanks.

    I went from a Premiere to a Bolt recently and just moved the card. I had to call to get it paired, but it was an easy process.

    Cable card has no effect on the picture quality.

    As others have mentioned, the cablecards are interchangeable but you may need to get it re-paired by your cable co. Also you may want to confirm you are using a multi stream card so you can decode more than one channel at a time. If not your provider should be able to exchange without any problems.
