I use a D11 DirecTV  box (just got it last month, so that's their  
current SDTV box) with a null modem plugged into my serial port with  
a usb->serial converter plugged into the box. The directv.pl (gotta  
get the one modified for the D11) works excellent, and the only issue  
I had was trying to figure out how to use the USB port on the box  
(it's actually serial, but accepts a USB shaped plug)
