jb38: thanks for your advice regarding the record and playback facility being lost once I cancel my subscription. My mind concern is that the adult channels will remain locked away and not be able to be accessed . .

bev: The PIN number controlled channel blocking system is not connected in any way with the status of your subscription, therefore anything presently blocked "will" remain that way until at any time you might decide to alter it. Another point to note being that the block will not be lost even if you disconnect your box from the mains, as it cannot be removed except by you going into the parental control menu and resetting it after you have re-entered your PIN number.

Also note, that although you are cancelling your subscription keep your viewing card inserted into the box, as its required in order for you to receive the correct news services for your area.

On the subject of the recording / playback side of your box. This was only mentioned because many people have numerous recordings stored away in the hard drive for future viewing, most of being totally unaware that they will not be able to access this side of their box once they cancel their subscription, a warning of this snag beforehand enabling them to transfer anything important onto a separate recording device.

Briantist: We have an old Sky box that is pre- Sky+ in our bedroom that has been working fine for watching the free Sky programmes until the last week. We now find that a lot of the programmes are missing. eg 101, 103, 104 and 105. Any ideas welcome.
