      Pairing Viewing Card

      Just wanted to know if you still need to phone Sky to pair a viewing card to a new box.

      I have changed my Thomson Sky+ HD box to a Pace Sky+ HD box, inserted my viewing card into the Pace & all subscribed channels were viewable. Just to make sure I done a call back from engineers menu which went through ok & also sent a request to record something from my phone which is showing up in the planner.

      I always thought that the card had to be paired to the box before any subscribed channels could be viewed or don't sky bother with that now.

      Any advice you be cool.

      Thanks

      Daz

      You should still require the card to be paired.

      You might find that all the extra functions disappear one night and you will have to pair the card properly. It only takes a few minutes on the phone.

      If the card isnt paired programs will record and non-premium channels will be viewable. Recorded programs will however come up with Recording Interrupted Please Wait....
