David,

You can get a complete brand new DirecTV system for $99 at many retailers now (Radio Shack, Circuit City to name a couple).

If you own the gear, including a Dish, LNB, receiver, and Access Card (important), you can just call DirecTV and they will turn on your service. Be sure there is an access card, though. This seems to be an expensive, albeit small, piece of the system.

David's unit is in a pawnshop. You figure it out..... http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif I would buy components from a private party but not DTV from a pawnshop.
