      testing a sky digibox

      i have sky plus and have just bought a sky digital box for use elsewheree.

      is it possible to test the box to see if it is working properly by hooking it up to one of the 2 feeds on sky plus.

      i know the card wont be twinned with the box i just want to see if you can get the free channells.

      thanks

      Just unplug the other STB and make sure no power etc remove it and replace with the newer box and reconnect the cables that you need .

      I used to use my card in my mum Sky box when I used to vist (more for the kids), so pairing should not be an issue, unless its premium channels (movies, sports)
