    new white sky viewing card

    Hi Helpers

    I have been given a new white viewing card to replace the blue one.
    The EPG does not show five or any of the five family.
    When card inserted just says "Initialising now" and then nothing.
    What am I doing wrong?
    Any help appreciated.

    Re: new white sky viewing card

    Has the new white sky card been activated at all?
    Or is it a free replacement?

    If it is a free replacement then it MUST be put into the receiver that the old card was using....(i think)

    If it is a new card, then it must be activated by Sky before channels apprear....

    You can see if the card has been activated by going to Liverpool FC TV - 434 - this is a free to view channel...if you can watch the channel the card is activated....if you cannot then the card needs to be activated (by contacting sky)

    Once the new card is in the receiver it may take a few minutes for the EPG to update - it has to reallocate the 102, 102, 103 104 and 105 regions...

    Also, try unplugging the box, insert the crd, and reboot the box with the card in....
