    So a friend is moving in with me and I need an additional receiver so he can watch tv in his room, my question is, what's the easiest way to go about this? Doesn't need to be anything fancy, I already have two DVR's and the whole home service so just a standard receiver should work. I have a regular HD receiver sitting down in my basement but directv had me send back the little access card that was in it, so is there an easy way to get a new access card and activate that receiver? I'd really like to avoid paying $99 for a new receiver from directv...thanks in advance!

    DIRECTV can get you a new access card. IIRC, they're $20.

    I recommend you call DIRECTV and see what you're options are. I'm sure they can help and provide you with the most economical solution.

    Correction. The card is free, however, they charge you $20 for shipping and handling. :)
