its for Dish, so ATSC cards won't work, you need a DVB-S card. When, they said 
they planned on starting a few months ago testing, so prbly near the end of 
2006 they will begin giving out only newer IRDs with a complete switch a year 
or two after that (to get the current subscribers new boxes).

check avsforums they're usually on top of these things.
