Just be aware that DirecTV generally has a policy of not activating a HD receiver on an account if you don't subscribe to HD service. That is generally free now as long as you use AutoPay. However, if you don't have an HD dish you generally cannot subscribe to HD service.
While it can be done, it sometimes can take a little finnagling to get it to happen.
Today's problems don't worry me, I haven't solved yesterday's yet.
