Thanks for all the updates, this will be useful when I finally get a
CableCard. Silly me, I just assumed that one of the Charter offices within a
50-mile radius would have CableCards in stock. Their system is so awful that
they can't tell me if each office has one in stock, so my last hope is a 30
mile drive tomorrow. Otherwise I have to wait till Friday afternoon. The STB
hooked to my HD-PVR is an SA4250HDC, with the C standing for CableCard. I
wonder if I could yank the card out of that box and jam it in my Prime...
