    I picked up a Sony Direct TV receiver from a local thrift store for a Single Mom neighbor of mine, but it did not have the access card. Direct TV wants $20. to send Her a card. Hoping to find one much cheaper. If you have one that is just waisting away, (I have an old Dish Card although it does not help her with Direct Tv).

    Will any Direct card work in this sony receiver?

    You will need a brand new NEVER USED "NEVER Subscribed" P5 [​IMG] card.
    Direct TV will never place a new/second account on a used card.
    I think it would be safer just to order one from Direct TV.
    I am sure there are users that only use the box for ota and have never used the card. But we are only talking about $20 shipped.
