Another Sky card replacement? by Terry Pinnell
A week or so ago I installed the replacement card sent to me by Sky. Today I have a letter headed: 'FREESAT from Sky: Please Register now for your free replacement Sky viewing card' Was it an oversight that this wasn't included in the recent update? -- Terry, East Grinstead, UK

Waking the box up by Tony
Hi Is there a knack to bringing the box out of standby? I have a Sky+ box & sometimes it's a real effort getting it to wake up. Whilst just pressing standby works half the time; for the rest it just doesn't do anything. TV + Standby & Sky + Standby just doesn't do anything. Help please. TonyB

Problem with Sky+ Box? by Zhang Dawei
We've had Sky+ for about 4 months. Until a week or so ago, all was well. Now, we find that the picture starts to wobble from side to side in bands after being switched on for about a minute or so. We can stabilise it by pressing the TV button on the remote, but that means all the sky stuff won't...
