    Another SKY HACK??

    Someone told me this but I couldn't get it to work. Theres a hidden menu to add digits to your phone prefix for hotels etc where you need to dial 9 to ring out. If you add any 3 digit prefix your box will ring out but sky won't know its you. I've been told it works on old boxes only. Mines 3 years old and it doesn't work so I think its bullshit.

    Heres details

    METHOD 1: Unlocking Sky Box Office >This really is a simple trick. >It is based on the fact that all the Digibox needs to activate a movie >or >event of your choice is a phone line which it will use to send details >of >the films/ events you have watched to Sky so they can bill you later. >The 'magic' boxes being sold are just a 9v battery connected to a >phone >socket to fool the box into thinking that a phone line is present, the >idea >being that your box can never 'phone sky and so you will never have to >pay. >My solution is far simpler. >There is a 'secret' installers menu which allows you to add a prefix to >the >Sky phone number ( '9' for an outside line in a hotel for example). >All you need to do is add a false prefix and the box can never 'phone >Sky! >It is that easy. >Here's how to do it: >Press 'Services' >Press '4' (system setup) >Press '0' then '1' then 'select' (to activate 'secret' menu) >Press '3' (telephone settings) >Scroll to 'Dialling prefix' >Enter a prefix of your choice (NOT 999 or 112, you don't want the fire >brigade round your house at 2am!) >Scroll to 'Save New Settings' >Done! >Now the box will just get an error message when attempting to send Sky >your >viewing information. >METHOD 2: Unlocking Sky Box Office >FREE SKY BOX OFFICE >here he is what you do >(1) go to a box office channel >(2) press select >(3) it will now ask you for your pin number do not put this in yet >(4) unplug your digital box from the telephone line >(5) now enter your pin number _ _ _ _ this is the last four digits on your >sky card >(6) your picture will now come on >(7) when you have watched you movie or sport event >(8) switch off your sky digital box from the mains for 5 mins >(9) switch your box back on then plung your telephone back in this methord >will reset your digital box so sky will not know you have watched >anythinghappy viewing >PLEASE NOTE >This method will give an error message anyway, so if it doesn¿t seem to be >working - take a look at your bill at the end of the month!

    nope, its all lies lol

    the billing info is stored on your card straight away, if you order a box office movie and only watch 1 second of it you are charged, once the card has stored a number of films that youve watched it wont let you view any more untill the info has been downloaded to sky

    can you not clone a card use it for free films and then erase and start again? or bin the card afterwards and plug in the original card with no ordered fims on.

    May be a silly question i know nothing about sky but just seemed to make sense.

    the way the card works is , you are given a set amount to spend on a viewing card depending on what credit limt they give u , so u can book ie up to 50 quid of films on the card , it only does a call back to sky once per month , on the same calender day , so what u can do is book ur movies on the card without the phone line plugged in , then when it says ur card is full , plug it in and phone up sky , take ur card out and say the card is knacked , they send u new one and chuck the old card, loose viewing for a couple of days but ha ho , if u want the box officebad it does work
