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 starview S2828 satelite receiver is not working, the signal is 60% but quality is 0 so we are not able to watch tv

More than likely one of your cables is wrong or one of the inserts is touching , this sometimes interferes with the signal, check all the connections, and make sure there is nothing blocking your sattelite

How is my 205 updated? what do I need to do and how much does it cost ?


Updates come at a cost, 54.95 to get the most current map set or 89.95 for a lifetime subscription to map updates. The lifetime subscription is the more economic way to go saving 20$ by the second year. You are eligible for a free update within 60 days of the units purchase, so you could try obtaining that before paying. All your GPS updates & accessories can be obtained at or

Hi, i have a pace sky digibox box switching itself off

Well every time you switch off the power the digibox returns to the factory default settings. The power must be maintained to keep those settings. There may be another brand that has battery back up to maintain the selected channels. Check with your owners manual to see if yours does have that feature. It continues to draw a very tiny current as long as it is plugged into power. There is no solution except a battery back up or leave it plugged in all the time.

Can not find a screen with several satelites on my Nuvi 205.

I found someone on your home page that had a similar problem. All that was required was to hold down the satelite bars icon for from 5-8 sec.

Thank you for your help.

Map is hung says finding satelite

Install the maps again with the cd provided just like you did the first time. And try leaving it outside in the open sky for a while. Once it finds signal it doesn't usually loose it. And also try to install the latest update from the garmin's website.
