Data ID keeps changing

Been having this weird issue after switching from Comcast to Frontier. After reboot or Win Update installs, my Data ID changes, and I have to call Frontier to get it updated on their end. It's pretty frustrating, and was wondering if anyone else has experienced this and knows of a way to keep it static? I know the cablecard ID and Host IDs stay static since they are tied to the hardware, but why would the data ID keep changing on me?

Running WIn 8.1/Ceton InfiniTV 4

Obviously the data ID should not be changing as long as the CableCard remains in the Ceton Tuner. In fact once the two are paired you can move them (as a pair) from one computer to another without impacting the Data ID. I would therefore suspect either the CableCard or the Ceton Tuner as faulty. Since many people have tales of having to try 3, 4, 5 or more CableCards until they find one that works I would suspect it first. However, you state that you changed from Comcast to Frontier and I would assume that that would involve a physical move. Therefore, I would first check the Ceton Card to be sure that it is properly inserted into the computer and did not work lose in the relocation then attack the CableCard.
