    Try a forced update on the box aswell I was told on Sunday by the installer that came round that anytime won't work unless the box had the latest firmware on.

    Could be bs though but always worth a try.
    Its not enough that I should succeed, others should fail.

    we pair them also using a hand help device, scan the barcode of box, enter card number, and pair that way.

    also, what box are you not getting anytime on?

    i know PVR2 boxes, which are old SKY+ boxes do not have anytime available.

    see link: Stuck in standby - Sky, Sky Plus and Sky+ HD

    Re: pair card with box without phone line?

    its a old pace sky+ box al with the 40 gig HDD installed as standard, but now has a 200gb HDD in, tried a software update when i first put the HDD in but it didnt put anytime on, think i might get a HD box since i have the HD package already i think it could be worth getting another HD box
