More likely the other way around. If I now have a DirecTiVo or UTV, I will be downgraded to a DishPVR. So if they merge I'm going back to cable.

If I have to support a monopoly at least let me get my money's worth.

I wonder if EVERY D* sub is getting a new card(s).

I haven't received any yet...does it depend on the model of D* receiver? I have a Hughes from about 1999...
