To all: I was checking on available DirecTV recievers and had this popup as a DirecTV Receiver, the cisco D9854 Advanced Program Receiver. I have talked with cisco and had no luck on installation and administration of their device to be a "DirecTV" receiver. Or where does the smart card go? Has anyone in this forum used or heard of this cisco receiver to be used as a DirecTV receiver? Any information would be great. Thank you, Mike Foltz OBTW: I am new to DBSTalk so please pardon any posting errors i created.
