    Just gave my brother my old Sky box as we don't use it anymore. He used it to replace is old Pace box. He used his own Sky card and subscription, but he cannot recieve the movie channels. A message says "Wrong card for the Sky box" (or something simalar). He subcribes to all the channels though.

    Is there anything we can do about this?

    Phone up sky and tell them.i think they have to tie up the box and card for it to work properly.

    That's exactly right. They have to pair the card and the box together. Only takes a couple of mins and it's no hastle.

    It will work on most of the Family Pack channels but NOT on any Premium Channels.
