I just got a new Sky+ box, I think it's a V3. I have hooked it all up and I am seeing most of the channels I had before, I haven't called Sky yet to get the new box and the card married, before I do this I wanted to to know if I should be able to record and pause without the cards being married. When I try to pause it only lasts for a few seconds the I get a message flash up saying "RECORDING INTERUPED" then it goes back to the normal program, I can rewind but after a while it flashes the same message and goes back to what is being transmitted. I can use the planner and it goes through the motions of recording but when I try to play back I just get the same message. I am hoping these problems will go away once the card and the box are married but I am reluctant to make the call in case it dosn't work and I have to change back to my old box.

I'm not convinced that the record function will work with an unpaired card Robbie, but must admit to having never tried it.

After more playing I have noticed that I can pause and record on FTA channels so that problem would almost certainly go away once the box and card a married.,,, I hope.

Just got the new box and the card married and all is working fine. I can't play back the stuff I recorded before the card was married though.
