If I'm understanding your issue correctly, you're only going to get one channel at a time out your DirecTV box no matter how you've got it hooked up. You won't get all the DirecTV channels with an external card or tuner, only the one that's currently selected on your DirecTV receiver. Only a DirecTV box can tune into DirecTV channels. You're getting something on channel 4 because your DirecTV receiver outputs the channel you're watching on it on channel 4.
