When my RCA receiver died, my daughter gave me a surplus D10 she had. The CSR said I would have to buy a new access card for $25, so instead I bought a R15 which was free after rebate (the only deal they had at the time). Maybe the fact that the D10 had been deactivated was a factor.cybrsurfer said:Each receiver and smart card are married so they don't want you to change that. You should be able to trade a receiver with your family as long as you keep the card that came with the receiver. I don't think it matters if its leased or owned, as long as your account is in good standing. Call DirecTV to confirm.
