Not sure if this is the right catagory....I have Direct tv at my home. I have come upon an extra dish for my cabin. Can I set up the dish, get another receiver, and just take my smart card back and forth to use in both locations? If I can, do I need to have the same kind of box, or will any Direct TV receiver work?

No, the card is authorized for one receiver. The authorization code is downloaded from the satellite. You could move the receiver and the card to another location, as long as you aim at the same satellite, as long as the dish is properly aligned.
