    Hello all,


    I'm new here. :hiya:
    I usually post on DS but I'm gonna try here as they didn't manage to help me...

    I currently live in Europe and have a Sky+ sub (£40/month).

    I've recently cancelled my first contract and applied for a second one (still £40/month, but different region)

    I need to know if I'll be able to still view the programs that I have recorded on Sky+ with my old sub when I insert the new card and have it activated?

    The programs were recorded on BBC1 and Sky Sports 2.
    Hoping you can help....

    thanks

    As mentioned in the DS thread one guy did have an ongoing SKY+ sub and then cancelled and started a new contract, his existing recordings were not accessible using the new card.

    Barring anyone actually doing what you are in the process of and confirming from personal experience I am afraid any response will not give you the guarantee you are after:(

    I seem to remember that people told the guy to take the card out and reinsert it.... but he'd already erased his stuff...

    has anyone else got any advice?

    thanks

    yes, I know but they'll be encrypted... :mad:

    I tried taking my viewing card out today and viewing a BBC1 recording from Sky+, it told me to insert the card.... :rolleyes:


    Now I suppose that I've got to buy a DVD Recorder!!!

    I'm thinking of getting the Panasonic E55 Multiregion for £220, is that a good price?

    If someone can advise me an online retailer that ships to Europe, I'd appreciate it... :smashin:

    But I'd prefer to manage to keep the recordings so if someone know if it's possible with the new card, I'd appreciate it...

    cheers

    Hi all,


    IT WORKS... :clap: :clap: :clap:

    With the new card/sub, I can still watch programs recorded on old card.


    thanks
