must be a network fault as nagra 3 isn't being introduced to birmingham yet, not that it will affect anyone with a paid for subscription unless their new card gets lost

I have a fully paid for subscription and it aint working.

no idea as it's being rolled out over the uk in different stages, although it's expected the whole of the uk will be changed within 6 months or so

Dodgy cards won't work when your area changes

Mines working again now (i think it is, 511 is on the box and not AP:52, too lazy to turn the tv on)

I haven't recived a new card yet either.

Is Nagra 3 actually been introduced or is that just hear say?
