oh I see, man you might have to get it from Dish in that case. Im not positive on this but maybe contact the guys at dishstore.net and see if they sell them as they are very trusted.

I got cards at the Dishstore but they are $65, since Dish charges us $50 plus $15 shipping.

I would return the 211 and buy a 211K for $119 from Dishstore which comes with the right card to begin with.

sounds good ... thats what I think I will do then .. thanks just thought 50.00 for the 211 was cheep and it was brand new so thought I could not go wrong , but lessons learned

Sign up for DHA and the smart card is free.

I bought a 211 that had the internal card but it was the NAGRA-2 card , DHA got me the card - no charge.

Of course it is $6 per month and there is a $25 cancellation fee, but...
