    Go to Services >> System Details

    Does the Sky card number show up ? If it doesn't, try pulling the card in and out a few times to clean the contacts.

    Failing that, try a forced software update..... power off, press and hold in the backup button on the front of the box whilst powering up. Keep button pressed until you see the on-screen display.

    I've just had sky+ installed today and had the same problem with the same channels. I phoned sky and was talked through a procedure that upgraded the system software in the box. The procedure is probably different for the pace box (but Nick UK's post suggests that it would be the same).
