Turn Off the SKY box power and leave it off for 30 mins. Put the card back in to the box and turn it back on. Also make sure your phone line is connected OK. If this does not cure the problem contact SKY for assistance and possibly a new Card. They are also replacing all the viewing cards at preasent.

I have a sony mp3 walkman i can connect the usb to the side of my tv and it will play my music files etc but when i connect it next to the sky viewing card on my sky hd box it says no connected devices...

Sky put the USB ports on the boxes in case they wanted to use them in future. They are there but not active.
Bit like the eSATA socket on the back, it isn't used yet but they had ideas to use it!

I guess if they had to replace boxes all over the country to put a USB in would have been a bit of an issue for them, so best they fitted one from the start...

My gps/mp3 player invion keeps telling me to put the card in but

Check the SD card in a computer. It might be that the unit is running the shell from the SD card an you might have deleted/formated it, also the card might be defective. If so you''ll have to restore the original software to the SD card (if the card is defective replace the card and restore after)

I have a amstrad sky+ box which is broken if i get another cheap one same make will the card still work in it

NO, sky lock the viewing card to your box, if you ring sky and tell them you want to quit your contract because yor box dont work they will do a deal for you, we tried it and they did us a half price service call £30 they will replace any faulty parts within this service call and give you warranty on the products. They replaced our LNB and Sky+box.

I have obtained a pace TDS470N sky satelite

If the sky box is connected to a working telephone line then you can press the following buttons on the remote to pair the card up with the box.

0,1, Select,
6 (new installation)

Press the SELECT button on the remote when prompted. This will start with a channel scan then it will ask you to press Select and then it will do a CALL BACK. This will try and pair the card with the box. If this fails try a couple more times if still no joy then you will have to call the sky call centre and get them to send the signals and get this pair up for you.

I've notice that your user name is JIM SPAIN if you are in spain with a Sky Satellite receiver. What you will have to do rather then the above. Is get the person who is registered with the box back in the uk to call Sky call centre and when you get through to the technical department. (normally india) you would have to provide them with: address in the uk, and some other details then they can send the signal to the box along with the viewing card number that way they will not know that you have taken the box out of the country.

Hope this helps Jim.
If it has helped clarify things please leave a thumbs up

My 87 year old Dad has Sky box but is no longer with Sky, & hes been told if he contacts Sky he can pay a one off payment of £20 for a new Sky box card which will let him watch the free view...


When you take Freeview from Sky its called FreeSat. You have to order the card from them by phoning them (click on link below for more info) and when you get the card follow the steps they give you to have it activated which takes around 30 mins to do.

Hope this helps. Please do rate my answer. Thanks.

Won't read an SD card

It sounds like either your GPS plug came out of the back of the unit, or your gps does not have a clear view of the sky, or if the gps is mounted on a trunk that opens and closes a lot the wire can break inside. I dont think the software is your issue, just to make sure if you update make sure the update file is the only file on the card, if there are other files (left over pictures, etc) they can cause the unit to disreguard the whole card.

My memory card won't work in my camerakeeps telling me to format the Lexar 2GB card every time I insert it

Use the camera to format the SD card not your computer. There should be a menu option to format it.
