    Sky HD boxes requrie a viewing card to access other channels.
    I think the Sky+HD boxes do not.

    If you have the "weak" five on 105, then if you wait a few days, then it should appear.
    That version of Five is on AStra 2D horizontal frequency, whcih even 2.4m dishes cannot pull in 24/7.
    In a few days we are expecting that version to be mapped to the same frequency as all the other fives....and it should appear...exact timescales I do not know.
