Second hand Sky HD box
Hope you can give me some advice.
I currently have Sky+HD with multiroom (multiroom box is a standard Sky+ box) my sister used to have sky but gave it up and has a black samsung Sky+HD box and gave it to me to replace the standard sky+ box, I thought it would have been a simple switch around using my existing viewing card which would now give me access to the HD channels as its an HD box in the multiroom now but when I put the sky viewing card in it still only shows the standard channels and when I try view one of the movie channels it says its the wrong viewing card?
I tried my sky+HD viewing card in this samsung box and it shows the HD channels but still says its the wrong viewing card.
I take it I will need to get a new viewing card for HD to work on this new box? if so does it cost?
any info would be great.

Re: Second hand Sky HD box
You should simply call Sky and ask them to pair the Card with the Samsung Sky+ STB. When yo do this also ensure that the HD channels are corrected and Anytime+ is enabled on the STB, if you intend to connect it to your home network that is.

What do you mean with "ensure that the HD channels are corrected" ?

Sky should swap the SD & HD channels for those who subscribe to them.
106 should be Sky1 HD not Sky 1.
