but this will be tivo hardware not motorola hardware, so they will have to come up with 2 way communications for ondemand to work

It doesnt have to be Moto Hardware.
This has much less to do with "getting it to work" and more to do with contractual specifics.

Tivo has announced that OnDemand will be trialed in San Fran starting next month, and will be rolled out to all Tivo Premiere/Elite boxes after that.

So I wonder if the OP ever got his cable card installed? FWIW - I have 2 TVs that can use cable cards - and gave up on the cards about 3-4 years ago. At the time - all cable card installations in my area could only be done by techs. And the techs hated the cable cards because they rarely saw them - and *their* phone support when doing installations was often inadequate.

FWIW - I never got the impression that Comcast disliked the cards. After all - it was getting its money. As of today - the biggest downside of cable cards - at least for me - would be the absence of the on-screen program guide (no way I can remember all those stations and my cable card TVs are both "one way").
