will I need a new cable card?

My old Tivo (Tivo HD from 2009) died. I am replacing it with a Tivo Edge. Will I be able to use my old cable card or will I need to swap it for a newer one?

Re: will I need a new cable card?

If the card is an M-Card (multi-stream) you should be able to pair it with the new box. If you have S-Cards (single-stream) you'll need to swap them for an M-Card.
