The card and Box have to be 'paired'

Only Sky can do this - best give them a call

They will talk you through how to check the box/card numbers and sort you out.

You will probably have to apply for a new card,through a contract with sky.Do you get channel4 and Five?if not,you probably got the old card which is useless now.

If you do need a new card and the old card can still get channels 4 and 5 - hold on to it.

You can sell these cards on the likes of eBay.
