[Comcast Equip] Re: Self install cable card

From this previous thread: »[Cable Card] Most hassle-free way to provision HDHomeRun cable-c

said by GTFan:

Comcast is required to offer self-installs per FCC mandate, you can always pick up a card if they have them in stock or make them ship you one for free if they don't.

And self-installs are usually not that big a deal since the new card rules went into effect last year [2012], pairing is usually a simple 10 minute phone call as mentioned.

Bottom line is there's really no need to pay for a truck roll, if the self-install doesn't work you make them roll a tech for free.

Thr trick is finding someone at comcast that actually knows how to pair the card. Not always a easy thing here in the freedom region.

If you're installing it yourself, call Comcast's national CableCARD hotline at 1-877-405-2298.

Cable Cards SIKs are store pickup only. They will not ship one.

Probably better off that way given all the problems people seem to have getting a "good" one.

Cable cards should be banned.. Disallowed.. They cause cable bills to sky-rocket. 90% of cable cards are robbing the cable industry blind.
