Hi all

im having issues with my old sky box it has an old cancelled card in it but i cannot receive CH4 CH5 and some of the other free to view channels,it has nearly full bars for signal any ideas ?

A cancelled card, if removed from a box or in a box which has not been used for a while, takes several days to receive the reactivate signal and make it start acting as a Freesat card.
