You should just need to leave the card in the receiver for a period of time, possibly over night and the FTV channesl should come back.

Depend's when your account was cancelled if it was less than a year ago then it'll probbly work as you'll have a period 2 viewing card ,if you do a thing called an astrascan which is service's button then option 4 system set up then ignore options on screen press 3 buttons in sequence first 0 then 1 then select this will open the installer set up select option 6 for new installation then press select a couple of times will scan for channels when it comes up channel line up complete then press big sky button at top of your remote and you should have restored the channel list if the message says no default transponder when you scan either your dish is out of alignment or cabling is bust :)

also a square battery go's a long way to making your digibox think its got a phone line attached to it lol simply cut end of the modem cable u plug into wall and join 2 wires in it to battery shouldnt be hard to work out which ones simply go to services , option 4 system set up then option 7 system test and first bit it tells u is if phone is connected just press back up to go back and then try again if yer playin with wires trying to work out the power ones lol i cant remember the colour of the wires probbly cos when i did it last i was smoking some real good herbal medicine
