This seems unlikely.  Copy freely channels still usually require a
subscription, and I don't think the cable card will have access to
your account info and know which channels you are supposed to receive
unless it is paired.

Since, as mythTV users, we won't get copy protected channels under any
circumstances, if this were true it would mean there's no point in
ever pairing the card.
