I just bought a New LCD HD TV for the Bedroom. I want to replace my Standard
D12-500 w/ HD Receiver. I'm not sure whether I want it to include a DVR, but my questions are as follows for those who know:

- Is it as simple as taking the card out of one and installing it in the new/used one?
- Once I change the receiver do I need to let Directv know what I've done?
- Is there certain models that I need to stay away from or are there certain receivers that work more user friendly than others?

I appreciate any insight here. Thanks in advance.
