Swapping Cablecard tuners

I currently have a Ceton Infinity 4 PCIe tuner. I am looking at getting the Ceton Infinity 6 Eth.

I am curious if anyone has changed or swapped out one cablecard tuner for another and if they had to re-activate the cablecard in the new device or if they just plugged the cablecard in to the new tuner and all was good?

If using Comcast they have to be re-activated because you need the HOSTID of the device. Cable cards are tied to a specific piece of equipment and are not swappable.
