[MO] Cable card

I currently have Ultra 50 in Springfield and was looking into buying a cable card tuner for the htpc. I was wondering if adding video service to my existing plan change my unlimited data cap?

Changes to the cable services will not affect the data allowances for your internet service.

Fantastic, how would I go about adding a cable card and how much do they run monthly?

I can either add one here and have a tech come out and install it, or you can pick one up at your local office. The cable cards are 1.99 a piece/ month.

If I could pick one up tomorrow that'd be swell, do you happen to know if they have them in stock at the Springfield office?

Be aware -- Chad arranged for me to pick up an M-card at my local office. When I got there the next day, they said they didn't have any. I had to insist that it had been previously arranged, and, miraculously, they found one. Be persistent...

On second thought someone will probably have to come out to take the filter off the line so I might be better off having someone come out. Can we arrange that instead?

Is it possible to pick up and install our own cable cards now? I have just ordered a new TiVo and will need a multi stream card for it. I was debating whether to use one of the cards in my current TiVo (it has two M cards now), and just swap it over. I was going to maybe sell the old one anyway.

But if I can just pick one up and install myself, that would be handy. I have a DTA that I need to return anyhow.

Would there be any available at the Cedar Rapids office?

Well you can pick one up at your local office if they have them in stock. Why would you need to 2 M cards for one TiVo? if it's the original series 3 it requires 2 single stream (green sticker) cards and newer TiVos all require 1 M card (red sticker).

I have the older series 3. They gave me two M cards when I got them...

Never mind, I just called and made an appointment, only took like 5 minutes surprisingly. We'll see what happens

Let me know if you have any issues. I will followup with you on here when I see it has been completed.

The original S3 requires two cards -- they can be two M, two S or one of each. But it MUST have a card in each slot for each tuner to work.

Well multi stream cards can be used as a single stream card.

Well, I did manage to pick up another M card at the Mediacom office. The new Tivo arrives today. I will get to install the new card tonight. Hopefully it will work out ok. MediacomChad said he will help me out if I have any trouble getting the card paired.
