"I then asked if Dish was going to send me a new card for this newly installed receiver (which has an old style card). She said no, that the receiver automatically will tell the main computer if it needs a new card."
They usually ship by programming, internationals first, then adult channels. People with the lowest American package should get cards last, but I can assure you it is not done like that this time......And alot of cards are not reaching their destination by post. They did not say they would complete the swap by end of November. They said they would not activate receivers after November 30th if they did not have the new card.
