I have been waiting patiently for cards since beginning to see the warnings and am now losing channels. I've scoured the threads and can't tell if the majority of people have gotten their cards automatically or if pretty much everyone has to call and complain?

I've tried the Dish web site smartcard page and after entering my details keep getting "Due to Technical Difficulties the System is Unable to Process Your Request at This Time." Great, thanks Dish!

Just buy a legit receiver and a subscription and you will be fine.

Subscribers are receiving physical smart cards that will be inserted into the slot on the front of their receiver(s) and override the internal smart card. It should be plug and play, for subscribers.
