hi, guy's
when i first got sky at this house, 6 months ago, i got the guy to put a quad lnb in, because a had another digibox packed away,
now having run an extra cable from dish to bedroom, i thought i could use new card either up or downstairs, but it seems i cannot it only accepts old card which is non subsription, is there a way i can setup the old digibox to accept the new card (sky subscribed)
cheers in advance

Try updating the software on the spare box, if it hasn't been used for a long time, it will not recognise the newer cards.

Just in case you ever need to update the software, all you do is unplug at the mains, then plug back in whilst holding in the backup button on the box until the lights flash, no real technical reading required. :)
