You should be OK, they won't upgrade the existing card, they will send you a new one and it will need to be activated by phoning them. :)

They normally ask for the Version Number and Serial Number of the box, plus the viewing card number.

Make sure that you have the card in the box and that it is switched on when he does it. :)

Rolf thanx for the quick and clear answer.
I'll give one of the cheapo subscriptions a try (choice of 2 variety mixes for 15 quid a month).
