The free to view cards from Sly do get deactivated eventually, but only for a good reason. In your case you probably just need to leave it in the receiver for longer, like overnight or something. I don't think it is unknown for the channels to not all come back at the same time also. Start investigating when they have not come back for a couple of days.

When I get the chirp sound on my Sony Sky unit it means I need to do a forced download and after having done that the unit is fine and does not chirp anymore
