i had directv the first day you could get it until i gave them up 4 years ago in that time i had new cards sent to me by mail stating they had to be changed out.
i had 3 receivers and they send cards for them at different times for each one no emails they just sent the cards out but that was with the old standard definition boxes.

Rather than do nothing, call DirecTV and ask them if this is legit and ask them why? Chuck


Hello

I did call and was told that was not for a card but for an upgrade. She really did not seem to know about the email. I did call the number and was told my wait time was 42 minutes I hung up and then deleted the email.

Bottom line I think it is all BS DTV trying to get you on a new contract and I will wait and see just like the end of DNS "NOT".

ps I think they (DTV) is suffering from a rectal cranial inversion.

If you are currently using a SD only receiver like a D12 or R series DVR (actually any receiver model that does not start with an H or HR) then DTV is correct that you will need new hardware to continue to receive the DTV signal when they end the SD broadcast in the near future.


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?

I do have a D12 receiver with a 18 inch dish antenna. Hope all will work after wards.

Right, so that is the required update. It looks like DTV has now set that date as their projected time to drop the SD signal. If/when they do that you will no longer be able to receive ANY DTV satellite TV with a D12.

So Bill let me get this sorted out in my head.

You are saying that after Aug 31, 2020 I will not be able to get DTV at all even if the new card is installed?

DTV said it would convert the SD to HD ?? Not sure I believe that but??

I also need to correct that I have a D-11 a silver colored recever that came with the RV not a D-12

Thank You for the reply Bill

Well I ordered the card so will see.

They are wanting to send to the service address but I am not there while in the RV so they are trying to figure that out.

???

NO! A "card" will not make your SD only receiver receive HD programming. You will be required to have a receive model that starts with an H or HR (DVR).
They will send it where ever they please. You have to figure the rest out. No matter the card, if they drop SD as they say they plan to do, you will lose ALL DTV programming with your D12 receiver.

Yes I understand and do believe you.

They (2 DTV representatives) continue to say that the card will convert the receiver to HD when I asked the question will the card covert to HD with the old receiver and they said yes. Go Figure.

Seems like this is the year for changes and letting go of the past normals and stepping out into the unknown.

As far as them sending it wherever there is a time out on the card and failure to act will cost $20.00 for a new card. So hope they send it to me and not the service address.
