DTV will activate any ird that you have all you need is the Access Card that was with it.

if the card is an old period card (Period 3 or earlier) they will not activate it

If the card was activated on an account other than your own, typically they will not activate it and you will be charged $20 for a new card (yes, there have been exceptions).
