Question Activating Sky Uk card and digibox - 28-August-2009, 01:59

Hello all,

I've just bought a pace digibox hd (old one in ebay) and when I go to a satellite shop for buying only the card (new white card). It is impossible and get email from the shop:

Quote:
Thank you for your email. Unfortunately we are not selling Sky viewing cards on their own. We were forced to take this decision after losing many of our cards trying to get Sky to activate them on peoples receivers who have a bad history with Sky.
Sky cards are now like gold dust and I cant afford to lose or risk losing anymore of my cards.
There are thousands of people who have not had their replacement cards because their supplier are out of business. Trying to activate a new card on these receivers is impossible and in the process I jeopardise having my card blacklisted.
A lot of people have chosen to write off their receivers and have bought card and receiver from me. You can do the same and sell your HD on eBay or look elsewhere for just a card. But be warned if you are one of the people mentioned above forget it, your receiver cant have another card activated in it for a long long time.
Sorry I couldn't help.
Regards
Do you think that with my old pace I will not be able to activate the new card or the satshop told me that for buying new digibox from them?

Any help please?

I take it your outside of the UK? It now seems that all the suppliers have seen an opening to make more money and sell you a box too!

Thank you dabs for you reply,
Yes I'm outside of UK, I found other supplier who can sell me sky card only, but the question will it be for sure activated in this old pace or there is a risk?
I readed somewhere that if the old digibox is already paired with other card it will not be possible to activate other one in the same digibox?
I ask that because now and for other 5 days I can cancell the order of the old pace before receiving it.

I think there is a big risk now, because you are right, if the card arrives un-activated then you will have a big problem! I'm sorry i can't help more with this, but im sure there are many members here that will have experience with this problem, and can help.
