I have forced a software update no joy any other options? dont want too loose the recordings if possible

    Any card will unlock previous recording on another Sky+ provided that the current subscription covers the package that is recorded.

    Cheers, Franc

    Thats what i thought franc but according to sky just spent 35 minutes on the phone to them (25 on hold) it wont and only the viewing card they were recorded with will playback (this isnt what i believed) BBC progs are playing back OK but nothing from an encrpyted channel will Ch4, Livingtv sky etc but i can view and record all of these now just not the older ones from the previous sub and viewing card.

    I can view all the material on customers Sky+ boxes that I buy and plug in at home except for sports as I don't subscribe to that using my own Sky card.

    Cheers, Franc
