    Not quite, only the basic subscription channels will work as normal until you pair the card with the new box. It's the premium channels (movies, sport, etc) that require the card to be paired. Since I don't have the movies or sport I haven't bothered to ring up Sky when I replaced my old box.

    I found when I swapped boxes that everything but sport and movies cleared but I couldn't use the pvr functions of the hd box until the card was paired. hope this helps!
