Hello all,
Im a newbie here so not sure if ave posted this in the right thread, but here goes....
We have a villa in Mallorca and have had a dish installed and have used our old sky box for viewing. The usual channels are fine (bbc1 itv etc) the problem we have is that we took our sky card over with us last time so we could get the other channels we subscribe to. When we put the card in there is no signal and we have left it in the box over night and still nothing, and as soon as we take the card out it works ok again. Any advise as what the problem could be and any way we can fix it.

Thanks
Sue

Hi Sue, welcome to the forum. :)

So if I get this right, you will be watching BBC1 and put the card in the slot but it then shows no signal?

I'm assuming that you are putting the card in the subscription card slot and not the interactive slot, have you tried putting the card in, unplugging the receiver at the mains and then plugging back in?
