They are nice boxes and quite fast. They also run very cool. I have one for my French holiday home.

Out of interest, how much did you pay? You can get one of these from Simply Digital for £89.95 including a Freesat card.

You will need to contact sky to get your viewing card switched over to your new box so I guess thats when you will find out any problems.

Be careful. If this box has any stored Box Office charges on it (ie the box wasn't able contact Sky at the time of watching) you'll get charged when you pair the box as it'll send the charges to Sky.

This just happened to me when an engineer replaced my faulty digibox. I'm now being charged for 3 movies which were watched in 2004!!!!! Madness.

They will also refuse point blank to admit that this can or has happened.

If he is going to use it as a Freesat box then he needs do nothing. If he decides to subscribe to Sky then they will issue a new card.
