    I have direct tv at my house. I own a cabin and have an extra receiver. Ive been told if I hook up a dish there, I can hook up the receiver. Anyone know?

    I believe so but you'd have to have the receiver activated at your home and never connect it to the cabin phone line.

    I think you just have to activate the card in the receiver

    This, unless you're saying you're not trying to cheat Direct TV. Then you just need to activate it.

    i doubt it is that simple or else everybody would be sharing the same satellite cards. i own a cabin and just download a bunch of stuff onto a hard drive and hook it into my wdtv when i go up there.

    You cannot take an extra receiver to the cabin, but you can take your main receiver and hook it up at the cabin. You'll need a bird dog meter.
