Sky+ HD box without viewing card
Hi there. Apologies if this question has been answered before, but all the ones I can find are from at least a couple of years ago.
I recently tried to join sky, and after a bunch of hassle I've ended up without an account but with a box and a de-activated viewing card. The only dish I have is a really old one which is not currently aligned properly, but it has a new twin LNB.
Should I be able to receive any channels at all, without a viewing card, if I get the dish aligned correctly? I'm not bothered about most channels, just the basic 4 would be a good start. I've attempted to align the dish myself using various online tools showing exactly which direction to point it in, but it always says it can't find the default transponder. So I was going to just get someone to do it professionally but I want to make sure my box will cooperate and isn't the cause of my problem in the first place.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
