I must have gotten the cheapest reciever ever made with my DirecTV. It is a Panasonic. It doesn't have the optical output on it. Would there be a big difference if i go with a new reciever with optical connection? What reciever do you reccomend. If i buy one off of Ebay do i need a card or can i use my old one? Whats the deal with the cards that have a football player on them or another sport?
