It works but had to be modified
on October 25, 2013
Yes it works now and I am happy with it. However, it wasn't usable as received. The positions of the ten pins was correct for my H25-500 DirecTV receiver, but the metal ring around the pins (male) was not compatible with the perimeter of the receiver receptacle (female). I had to cut a notch out of the metal ring. The usual reason for the ring is to guarantee correct polarity, but now I will have to be careful if the cable ever gets detached for any reason. I do not know who is at fault.
