    new sky card

    I have been using a sky plus box without a card to watch free channels. I have a 1.9 dish. I have obtained a sky card from the UK via my son ,but it will not work. The 'system details' on the 'system setup' shows a different viewing card number. Any ideas?

    Hello and welcome.
    If the viewing card number on the screen is different to the viewing card number on your card, then :
    1) you have not removed a viewing card from the viewing card slot (sometime they are under a pull down flap)
    2) you have not inserted your new card in the correct slot.

    The viewing card MUST go into the Sky Viewing card slot, not the Interactive card slot.

    Apart from that there is no other reason as to why the System details screen would be showing a different sky card number.
