If the above method does not work, the LNB may have a fault.
Press the [SERVICES] button and then press    then [SELECT]
On Sky HD, press the [SERVICES] button and then press    then [SELECT]
Press the buttons in the sequence above exactly - do not atttempt to use [UP] or [DOWN]. Note that when you press the second 0 and 1 nothing happens on the screen until you press the final [SELECT]. This is a "hidden menu".
When did your reception cease? I ask because last year there was a change to the pattern of broadcasting channels from the Astra satellites used by Sky and Freesat such that reception of programmes aimed at UK viewers was made much more difficult, even impossible, in 'out of area' locations such as southern Spain.
I live in the North of Italy and have a very elderly Pace digibox (circa 1999!).
It is still working but I would really like to get a new one. I don't know how to go about this.
Do you think I could by one from Amazon and link it my card the next time I'm in the UK?
Do you think I could buy a more modern digibox or would my card not be compatible? I don't have any special channels(film, sport).
Thank you for any help you can give.
Helpintom: If by "don't have any special channels" means any that are part of a Sky package?, then why do you bother using a card? as a standard Sky box will operate perfectly OK without any card having being installed, a card used in a non subscription box only enabling the viewing of news channels or adverts appropriate to the area that a person resides in, other wise London is the default, the only other programme channel, which although free cannot be viewed without a card, being Sony TV 157.
If though any channels are viewed that does require a subscription, then Sky will only issue a card to UK based residents, Sky at time of registration, requesting the serial number of the box the card is intended to be used in, data containing the serial number of the box being electronically stored in the card, whereby anyone trying to use it in another box will trigger an "incorrect card for box" or similar message.
Needless to say, that if you do not subscribe to anything, then this will enable you to purchase a standard Sky box from anywhere of your choosing. Although please note, that the aforementioned is not applicable to Sky+ devices, a subscription always being required for Sky+ devices in order to access the recording or playback side of the box, otherwise they operate as a standard box, likewise non subscription channels can still be viewed!
Hi, my Skybox stopped working sometime today. I was listening to the radio this morning when I started work but when I stopped for lunch I was getting a "No satellitesignal being received".
I've tried:1. Power of from mains, leave for 20 minutes power on.
2.I did the LNB power reset
3. The software update
but I still have the problem.Any ideas?
I am in France and get british tv via the owners old skybox. I want to connect my Freeview, I know I cannot get Freeview here, to record from the TV & sky box. Can it be done and if so how. I have a spare scart and a scart adaptor, one of those things that takes more than one scar.
Hi my sky went off Sunday afternoon, tried the power off routine had a live chad with sky, went through menu trying various things. It was showing Imput 1 not locked and Imput 2 not Locked, he said it would need a engineer to look at it which would cost me ?65, I was watching it an hour previously the weather was fine so i dont understand it! The menu channel shows on screen, but cant select and theres no sound. Is there anyway I can go back to normal tv viewing with this box installed? Been thinking of getting rid recently this may be the opportunity. IIts one of the old sky plus box.
