    I understand that part but what I don't understand is how are you guys coming up with that chipset . The one I ordered from Newegg.com don't list that info . I also went to the site of the company that made that cable I ordered from newegg.com . I couldn't find any info on the chipset . But its reported working on the D-11 box so im guessing it should work for the D-12-100 box like I have in my house from directv .Ill report back on Monday or Tuesday if she is working on that cable also there is a cheaper one that will run on Linux too on newegg.com I can link it to my page if you like .

    I got it and no luck it wont switch the channels on the directv 12 box So Im at that point where I cant understand how to get this to work . I need to change the channels so when im watching a show it can switch for recording and just general television viewing for my replay box to change the channels why Im watching live television too . That way I can back it up .

    DVR service is $10 a month for the whole account. The charge per box is $6 but if you replaced your current standard the only increase in your monthly service would be $10. If you were to get a HD DVR it would be $10 more for HD, and a Genie would be $3 more on top of that.

    It sounds like a SD DVR might be a good starting place for you as it's a lesser increase but you won't have to deal with the time and money testing different parts to finally get something that will half do what you want.

    duckland, replacing your D12 with a directv DVR is only going to cost you $10/month more....and save you thousands of dollars in headaches....you may be able to get a SD DVR from Directv very cheaply.
