      Advice / Clarification please

      Hello

      I am just after some advice and clarification please.

      I currently have a bog standard sky box. I am refusing to pay sky installation fees and box costs so I have purchased a 4 port LNB, the cabling and a sky HD box via another source.

      It is not my intention to subscribe to hd as I dont have an hd tv. So I am only looking at using the sky + side of the box.

      Once I have set the equipment up, am I correct in thinking that I need to speak to sky to get the new HD box paired with my current card? Do I need to complete a call back using the service function on the box before calling sky or will the expect me to do it whilst I am on the phone to them?

      Is there anything else I need to do?

      Thanks for your time and patience.

      Sully

      Just swap the lnb over, cable it all up and then call sky to pair the card. That's it. Nothing more needed. No call back needed or anything.

      The only thing I would do is a forced software update, but it's not necessary.

      Do you Subscibe to Sky ?
      If you do, when you phone Sky to pair the card with the box,Tell them you do not want to Subscibe to the Hd Channels.As they might automatically add the Hd Channel Subsciption to your package.

      Hope it Helps.
