I can almost guarantee directv support misinformed you... I use a D11
box, and has to figure out that the USB port is just a USB shaped
serial port, then I had to try a couple different scripts, but the
one I got worked with both the old rca box my mom had (I originally
used that, it was a DRD420) and my new D11.
If you haven't been there, try that one.
