If it's an NTL cable box and the new abode has an NTL cable connection it should be easy.
Cable TV is 2 way - there is the downstream channel (AKA Forward Path) carrying the programs on one set of frequencies (with QAM modulation) ; then there is the upstream channel (AKA Return Path, with QPSK modulation) on a different (lower) frequency.
Once connected and powered up with its viewing card inserted the box should be recognised and automagically configure itself. This may take a few minutes - hopefully with an on screen warning whilst this happens.
