No likely, The M card is paired with the box. If you wanted to switch the
box you would need ur Cable Co permission to do so. Most likely Comcast
will not activate the M card on a box that is not thiers. You could call
them and ask if they will or not. In regards to the DVR who knows. I am
not sure if something comes down the wire that signals the box for DVR
features or not.
