from http://customer.comcast.com/Pages/FAQViewer.aspx?Guid=5993d5c8-c8a4-44f7-96f4-def06cced0db

"The first CableCARD in a retail device (e.g., TiVo devices or
CableCARD equipped televisions) is free to Comcast customers. If a
second CableCARD is needed for the same device (i.e., TiVo Series 3
boxes), the cost is $1.50 per month for the additional card. Again,
this ONLY applies to a second CableCARD in the same device."
