When you received the Solus card originally did you have it activated? If yes then putting the card into the digibox for 24 hours or so should work (a card of mine restarted overnight after it had been out of a digibox for 6 weeks).

If the card was never activated you could try using the phone number on the card but I am not sure that it will still work.

Hi everyone,

I'll post my Q here as it continues on the same line.

I have one of the new FTV cards (mentioned above) which was activated and used in my old Panasonic 30 until the STB died.

Today I took delivery of a working Panasonic 30 and inserted my current card. While all the channels appear on the EPG, channels 4 (104) and Five (105) display a "upgrade your subscription" message.

Here's my Q. Is this the default message/correct message while the box/card sort themselves out?

I vaguely recall that Five usually appears quite quickly, while Channel 4 Usually takes forever. I could never receive the 2D channels.

Thanks in advance,

Mark.

Answering his own post ...... yes, this is a typical screen message.

I was just on the phone to SKY FreeSat (as it is now called?) and while I was trying to explain the "upgrade" message - channel Five sprung into action.

So, if you are as dumb as me - be patient and - w a i t - for the card to do its stuff.

Interestingly the operator didn't have a clue and suggested I had an SKY sub card that needed to be re-paired to my new box.

Thankfully, something happened before she had time to flog me a FreeSat package: whatever :rolleyes:

Have Fun,

Mark.
