you should get peripheral as is... but if you are shipping them in, I would consider taking the transformer off just to save weight for shipping/space concerns.

It had a credit card type card that said Dish network on one side and a sim card embedded into it on the other side that you inserted into the box... actually like the new credit cards...so really ahead of its time....2003 I think

Cablevision had the first consumer smart card back in 98. But yes these were far more advanced than anything then available. The four stream business box dish offered had a 500 meg memory card in it to buffer streams.
How far we have come that all this fits on a quarter length USB stick now.
