Sorry for the daft question. Just bought a replacement (non Sky+ but HD DRX595) box for my father in law to replace his ancient Sky SCART box. He has BT sport free with but does not subscribe to any pay channels. Do I need to pair his viewing card or has the card been surplus to requirements for years? Thanks for the advice.

May I ask were you bought your replacement sky box from as I need to replace my non sub sky box which is one of the original Thomson boxes. Sorry I cannot answer your original question. With the card inserted, do all the usual channels work?

Bought it on here. Problem solved. Just a simple call to Sky to pair the card with the box.
