I've got the disk that was with the receiver when it was active, but not the access card (I know, don't bother telling me I'm a fool :blackeye: ).

If I get a new card and reactivate it do the old recordings work?

Thanks, y'all :-)

I have read many times that it is tied to the receiver ID that is in one of the chips on the main board.

Wait for mor knowledgeable to answer before deciding.

u should still be able to access them. the access card only gives the authorizations for ur programing.
I may not know as much as the experts but neither did the experts when they themselves were novices.

Yup. The recordings on a drive are tied to the RID. Swapping out access cards has no effect.

You are Correct!!! The RID # is encoded into the Header of each Recording and it gets it from that Flash Memory Chip where it is stored. :)

Also, the RID # is Stored on the Access Card so when you get your New Access Card it will have the RID # stored on it.
