Tivos are one-way devices.  That is why they too
need tuning adapters (where the cable company
is using SDV).

The only (commonly seen) two-way CC devices are the
set top boxes (at least those with separable security
modules; the older STBs have the functionality built

Since AFAIK Comcast does not allow customer owned
set top boxes, it seems unlikely that they would allow
provisioning of two-way CCs as a normal process/procedure
(I would expect they have ways to escalate to a higher level
for internal testing of new technologies and the always
existent "special circumstances").
