Hmmm, can't argue with that erectorvision, it just seems strange that if the cards were in circulation 10 months ago, why haven't they started materialising. We have several forum members who live and work in some of the Spanish resorts where they would be likely to appear and they certainly seem to have no knowledge. If I had a working Sky hack card and was a dealer, I would splatter them every where to make as much money as I could before the hack was countered.
in Feb/01 the analogue transmissions were still in full swing. Perhaps the reason you didn't recognise the card was because it was analogue...?
In any event, please describe the card - and anything in the transmission that would prove it was Sky Digital you were watching (e.g., the form of the info banner displayed when switching channels). If you can describe the box itself that might also be useful.
it was definitly a panasonic i install them for a living the card was a green colour hope this helps, i was in marmaras in sept turkey. and was watching sky sports 1 and im shaw it went off the air beforehand so who knows im telling you there out there.
