hi was wondering if the sky call back could only be used for first time installations .as it can take up to 48 hours to pair a card to a reciever over the phone.i was hoping i could use it for loan boxes while originals were being repaired.and upgrade boxes.if any one has tried it or know a quicker way to pair cards please let me know.

If it is an already paired card, then phoning them is the only way.

It is a pain, I agree, would save me a lot of time on service calls. :)

if the sky card only has the mix channels and no sport or movie channels then you can use it in any receiver you like
