Opened one of my receivers that I just got up today to see which card is in it. It says on the front "Card 4" or something like that. It's light blue. Is thie the new card or the older ones?

1) The card slot is easily accessable, so why did you open the receiver ?

2) As long as the receiver works, what difference does it make which card you have ? And why is it "good" that you have the new "card 4" ?

I just got this receiver in the mail. I opened the box in which it was shipped to make sure everything was there I then removed the card and looked at it and wanted to know if this was the new card or not. It is good because I dont have to wait for them to come in the mail and go through the hassel of swapping them.

:o Sorry for the questions. Your original post sounded like you had cracked the case of the receiver itself, and you were wanting hack the unit and the new card or something :D
