The question is if your CableCo will allow you to pair it. Some do, some don't. If the CableCARD itself is not legit they may not do it. Plus some providers use Cisco while others use Motorola. If you buy that Cisco and your CableCO uses Motorola you're screwed. If you have a Tuning Adapter, the brand name of it might give you a clue as to which CableCARD brand plus if you have a CableCARD, you might just need to take a look at it of course.
Eric from ceton was talking about this just a couple of weeks back and he said one works almost all the time and the other brand doesn't but I don't remember exactly as I don't mind paying $2/mo for something that just works. Anyhow, I see if I can dig up the thread/post.
