yeah, we got the dish network, tons of RED blocked out channels, - i'm wonderin', do you have to maintain a "basic" service package in order to use a smart card, in order to continue with your service ? or is it a one time, got the dish, got the box, got the card, it's on like dawn...........?

I don't know much, if anything about the subject, but I'd imagine that to save them the time of programming and sending you new cards in the mail whenever your programming package changes, whenever something happens, there may be something in the box which tells the card what to do whenever dish network contacts the box and tells it that.
Like I said though, I'm no expert on the subject, but I have a friend who knows a ton on the subject and wrote a smart card article for us in npanxx. If you want his AIM i could probably hook it up.
yes... give me his sn, i have a few questions. Do they have hacked cards for dish? Im getting rid of direct in a few weeks and ima lose all my free channels . Does anyone know anything on dish card hacking or if it is possible (anything is possible, what am i thinking). Where can i buy writers? thanks
