Re: Two S-cards here!
said by banditws6:This MAY be true in your area, in most if a second card is in the same piece of equipment then there is a reduced cost for second card. Has been like that in New England area for a few years.
Because Comcast's billing system is literally unable to support proper pricing for CableCARDs in a two-tuner device, they see each tuner as a separate box and bill for an additional HD outlet. Thus, a manual discount code must be put on the account to reduce the price to the correct level.

Edited above sentence to mention that. I did mention the specific local service area in several other places up there.
I think part of it may have to do with us being a Scientific Atlanta service area -- which represents about 10% of Comcast's markets, if I recall correctly.
If nothing else, this merely illustrates my point that the CableCARD experience is dependent upon the effectiveness of the local cable operation.
