Anybody have this combination? I called Directv tech this afternoon to request a cablecard for my HDTV and they didn't know what I was talking about.
They only provide cards for the STB they said. Did I do something wrong?
For instance, could the TV cablecard function be meant for HD feeds rather than just digital?
One tech told me to inquire about a card at Radio Shack.
Help.

a cablecard plugged into a tv, enables viewing of authorized content for cable tv channels, that would be encrypted without it.


Not familiar with DirectTV, but I would assume as long as you have a dish/receiver HD capable, the sat receiver would take care of receiving and processing the signal, then would just pass it on to the TV for display

Thanks for the replies! Gotta use the STB then. I have one of the older RCA boxes that likes to crash every other day requiring a reboot. Gotta keep my fingers crossed whenever I do a timer recording with the VCR. Drat.
