    I take it your talking about a "Direct" or "Dish TV" subscription. The chances are, if the owner of the satellite dish // receivers, shot through, then the pay provider will want the back rental fee's before they will issue a new sub card. or if you have the sub card that has been de-activated. Then it might be a lot easer and cheaper for you to take out another subscription, and start a-fresh.

    As for your comments about ,,

    Not so, In some cases, receivers become the renters proparty after a qualifying peried, In others they always remain the proparty of the pay provider, as does the dish.
    As you haven't said who the pay provider is, there is no way of knowing.
    Cards can be reprogrammed via the pay provider, some cards can be re-writern, but again we don't know the system or the encryption being used. In most cases subscriptions that fall into debit, the cards are automaticly de-commissioned. But they make good ice-scrapers for your car windscreen

    Finders keepers no mate. Dish TV and Dish netwrok do not sell receivers. They only lease them and they always own them. Read their contracts.

    Yes thats true, but in this case I purchased a home with the equipment as part of the deal. The original owner had already paid for the equipment.(he hadn't paid his final few months of programming) I am the curious type of person and would never go on stealing any ype of service. To me it is more of a quest for kowledge. There isn't anything wrong with knowledge as long as it is not abused. I am interested in why Dish would place on the front of their DVR a place which reads "smart card slot" and in the reference manual claim that it was for future use, but no future use developed. I must admit I am also intrigued as to how the machine was working with no card in the slot for the first few months that I were living in my new home. I thought that were strange as well. Personally, I like understanding things in depth. If someone knows anything about this subject I appreciate your help. And regarding my comment, I apologize, its just that getting any information about this sort of thing is like pulling teeth. I thought we lived in the information age? Also, ironically, I just read an article that was displayed in a national/local paper avaialable in the United States. The most remarkable thing about the article is that it went in depth on how to change hydrogen peroxide into a greater concentrate. (I didn't even know that it could be potentially explosive) The artticle went on to mention the other chemical that could be added to make it extremely volatile. I ommitted the name of that chemical on purpose. Now, what I find strange is the first amendment right protects a nationally available, local newspaper in their complete lack of judgement in publishing such material, but when it comes to knowing how things are working inside my OWN home, somehow I am supposed to stay in the dark and take a back seat to knowledge. Thats the sort of mentality that just blows my mind. Well, ttyl.


    here is the link to the article I mentioned: http://www.nytimes.com/2007/09/06/wo...erland&emc=rss
