I have the older model RCA Direct TV reciever, model # drd222rd. I have been told i can use this reciver with the purchace of a new card from direct. Has anyone out there ever done this.My big concern is how the old reciever will work with the new equipment? I just dropped the 5.99 a month charge for Direct service. I talked with a service person on the phone that said the old equipment could cause a problem. I don't want to damage my system, but i can install this (extra reciever) myself and save money.I know I will have to have the new card activated. Does anyone know how much Direct charges for and to activate the new card. Trying to save some money.
