Yes. All you need to do is to leave the card in the box and as long as the box is turned on (or in standby) and connected to the LNB the card will reactivate itself. It usually happens within 24 hours, but can take as long as 72 hours.

There's no short cut available - all you need is patience!

Sorry to butt in here but my card suddenly stopped working today. Will it re-activate if I leave it in the slot? Or do I have to cough up more money?

Thanks

It's simple really. If the on screen message on Ch4, 5 says 'Call to upgrade your subscription' then the card is active and you only need, as billnot says, patience.
If the message says 'This card is not activated' then you're screwed cos your card has been switched off!
