    Hi,
    Can I use the cable card that is currently in my cable box and insert use that one for the Tivo? Or would I need to order a new card from my cable company?
    I have Optimum if that makes any difference.

    Thanks

    That cable card is paired to that box so you can't just use it in a Tivo.

    Thanks. Would I still be able to plug it into the Tivo and make it work with a call to Optimum to repair it?

    You need another cable card.
