These are the DirecTV receivers that I have personally tested. This is not a comprehensive list - there are numerous other receivers that will work. One notable exception are the DirecTV receivers with integrated TiVo (Philips DSR6000, Sony T60, Hughes GXCEB??T, etc). They have a serial port, but do not support control of the receiver via that port.
