I've had a quick look on the forums and have found a few posts that are similar to my query but can't find anything that answers my query exactly.
I've just bought a Sky+ box on ebay and plugged it in last night (just using one feed at the moment as i haven't got round to fitting quad lnb and running new cable and haven't phoned Sky to switch on Sky+) and I put my existing viewing card in the box, but when I go to BBC1/2 and ITV1 I get London region (I'm in Scotland). I've seen on some of the similar forum posts that the region is coded to the viewing card, but if thats the case why am I still getting the wrong region when I'm using my own card?
What do I need to do to fix this? (I know that I can view all the regions on the 900 channels, but thats a pain so I want to have 101, 103 etc on the correct region.
One other quick question: Is it normal for a Sky+ box to be quite noisy (hard drive spinning noise) even when the box is on standby? (the box is a Pace TDS470N)
