Yes, but possibly not with that receiver as I don't think it is flashable, you would need a CAM like a Dragon.

PS. Moved this from the Dish setup section.

1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

Sell that receiver and buy one that is flashable... otherwise the cam is the only option available to you

Not really of too much use these days, for card programming, you also need some sort of programmer, for some CAMs also.
