As far as I know, there are only two manufacturers of UTV devices;

- RCA have the DWD490RE (35hrs), DWD495RE (70hrs) and DWD4290RE

- SONY have the SAT-W60 and perhaps other derivatives.

If you plan to continue using the HU card, you need to have software version 3.5 or earlier, since the latest (3.7) specifically blocks P3 and lower CAM_IDs.

Alternatively, if you have the option, call DTV and ask for a P4 card, then you don't care about software versions.

If I get a 3.7 can I program it back to 3.5?

Yes, there are threads here that discuss that.
