    There is no way to do it without attaching the box to a phone line and doing a callback. This transmits the PPV info on the card and then resets the limit. Be prepared for a bill of around £50.00, this is the limit that is set on the cards. Until you do this you will not be able to order anymore PPV.It doesn't have to be your phone, you can do it from any line, providing the house has a working Sky system. Just take your box to someone elses house,connect it up and go to the Installer menu and do a new installation.

    Without a phone connection you can not order more PPV even with a new card (which will cost you money) unless you intend to fool the STB into thinking you have a connection and rack up more unpaid movies which I suspect is the case.

    If I am wrong in assuming you are just stealing content with no intention of paying then forgive me but you see too many people asking for ways to pirate subscription telly to assume that there are indeed genuine people out there who do not understand how things work.
