it's not just been reset has it ?

Eurovoxs are all gone now nagravision 3 has been rolled out across the uk. As far as getting a virgin screen you at least have some cables correct or it would show nothing ;-)

U sure youve got subs ? What package are you on and what box are you now trying to use ?

i downgraded to the smallest tv package, and have fone and internet. i still have my old telewest box but have a new smart card that was sent out in may (that i have only used for the first time today) so possibly this is the problem?

Time to get a friends and family discount code for Sky (HD)

Perhaps ring virgin and get them to send out a new samsung box for the new card to be paired with. Either way youve got the cables correct if it displaying the virgin media screen.

you've got the N3 Encryption up and running in your area.
no way round it
you need to pair your card with the box they supplied you with.
nothing else will work.

any other box will show a message saying you aren't subscribed and the message cannot be removed.
so long to the freeloading cable thieves

Still ways to get free tv though, sky or virgin.

OP put the new card in, power off the box at the mains for about 5 minutes
Switch back on, it should come on. If it doesn't you are going to need to call them.

through cable it'd be card sharing and thats not free and less reliable than a hacked box cos you're basically paying to use someone else's tv through your net connection.

the new card will only work with the box its linked to on your virgin media account.

i know i say this every time but it seems a perfectly acceptable form of theft to steal cable or satellite TV from those that are paying for it.
if you want cable TV, pay for it. why should you be any different.

calm down dear!
i have been paying for my cable each month - i have just been taking the advantage of some extras recently.
i have spent a fortune on telewest/virgin over the last 12 years and only recently thought i would try to save a little money. like i said i am still paying my monthly fee for my cable, just wanted some freebies

thanks - me thinks im gonna have to fone them, they are gonna know what ive been up to, just a bit worried what to say!!!!!

oh I misunderstood, you have a basic cable package but you're (were) getting channels you weren't paying for like everyone else has to.
still makes you a thief.

so maybe you could 'save a little money' by tapping into someone else's gas & electric and taking that, or taking food from the supermarket without paying for it.

its disgusting how cable theft is regarded as an acceptable crime

Easy solution pay for the channels you want to watch and then you have no problems. I am glad Virgin are trying to sort out this problem.
