    Hello, I was wondering (and i know that the 942 has an internal smartcard) but can I use my standard dishnetwork card with this receiver? I see that it has a slot for a card, but will my standard card work if I place it inside?

    Also, how does the internal smartcard update itself? via phoneline?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    No, a smartcard is married to a specific receiver.

    I believe some of it updates via satellite and some of it updates via phoneline. Although the receiver will function correctly with no phoneline connected so I'm guessing the critical update is via satellite.

    Updates are received via satellite signal.

    There is no reason to use another smart card. It is built in and you would never need to do this. Why do you ask?
