nope! I thought sly married the card to the box and updated it with their N%S system, making it a real nut to crack. With the only option being CS'ing.

hiya, thanks for reply, if box has to be matched to card, then how come he can take his card from sky box (subscribed) at home and take it with him to box he is subscribed to in wales, and the card he takes with him has sports etc, but box in wales is minimum subscription, no sports, films, when puts card in he gets his whole package like at home
i only want to copy card he takes with him so doesnt need to take it everytime and leave it down there
thanks

I'm not 100% but the card has to be activated in the CORRECT married box. There maybe a time limit before the next activation, so have a card in the wrong box will miss the activation and will be dead. Only putting it back into the correct box will activate it.

Not 100% but i'm sure this is how it works.

Currently an active sky card will decode the basic channels in any Sky box, the premium channels can only be viewed in the Paired Box.

Sky cards CANNOT be copied.
