    Hi, for a couple of years now I have put my sky box in the van so that I could continue the service that I pay for. Heard that the dreambox could read the sky card without pairing.
    Now have Dreambox and need software to enable the reading of Sky card (that I subscribe to). Any body know who or where this can be done.

    Thanks

    Don

    Will a Dreambox decode the new type Sky cards which I understand are different from those used previously?

    a dreambox could easily read the old blue sky cards, incluiding the sports and movie channels...

    i know that they can , like other "multicam" receiver, read the "6 mixes" but not 100% sure about the sports and movie channels...you may need to do a lot of searching and software download and maybe even a special programmable cam (dragon cam...?)
