That's strange if your new card is in the box its not showing the box is registering your new card on the system, can you please click on my name and PM your new smartcard serial number so I can get this activated on our system please.

Just to let you know your fault with 4od is part of a national fault we have specifically effecting your box type, the fault was not showing correctly on our fault page yesterday that's why I didn't pick it up.
It is currently under investigation (fault ref:1312448).
Faybee: You have a different box type so your fault is not related to the above problem.

Thanks for sending me the serial number, that card is registered properly now on our system and the correct registration signal has gone to your box.
As mentioned in my last post with have a national problem with freezing on 4OD but it is only effecting customers with one type/model of digital box and you do not have that box.
I've checked your area and there are no other customers reporting this issue. If you go into 4OD and select a programme it is happening on at the moment and I'll check in our office here to see if I can replicate the problem.

Hi Laura, it's now saying that our Smart card isn't inserted properly when it is. We've taken it out and put it back in, but it still keeps saying it, and saying to quote '1007' when we call the helpline.
We've tried the IT Crowd from Friday again and it's still doing it, so you could use that one.

I have just sent some signals to your set top box to try and clear the error. Can I trouble you to switch the box off at the wall and back on again after a few seconds. Once it has reloaded, can you check if the same error shows on-screen.
If so, are you able to close the message by pressing ok, and watching the channel? It may appear again when you change the channel.

Oh good : )
Laura mentioned a network issue earlier affecting certain models of set top box. Although yours is a different model, it is none the less quite a similar model. I am going to escalate your details to our team who can monitor your area and check if anybody else reports the same fault. One person has since logged the same fault, so hopefully we can include your model of set top box into the network isssue and get that resolved via the same fix.
Our episode of the IT Crowd is unaffected.
You will receive a callback from my colleagues within the next 5 days (usually 2-3tops) to either identify the fault as network issue or despatch a technician to investigate further.

Right. I haven't received a callback, and now the service is getting worse. The catch up (the whole service, not just channel 4) works when it feels like it. The other day it cut out and decided to stop working halfway through shooting stars. The whole TV service keeps flickering. We have to reset the box constantly. If something doesn't get sorted soon, I'm refusing to pay my bill and I'm switching to sky. I'm paying more for this terrible service when I could switch and get a sky+ box thrown in! It's only the hassle of getting a dish sorted that's stopping me at the moment. All I want is somebody to come out and swap my ancient ugly box for a new one that works. How hard is that?
