rugrat:
tripp: The account needs to have access to view the movie. His card / account does not have movies so his card won't play them even if they are on the decoder.

Also if a hit is sent when his card is in your decoder then you may lose access to pvr and the recordings on the decoder.


So in short. Don't try and cheat the system.




I can play movies I recorded two years ago, and my card is not currently subscribed to movies, though it was at time of recording, so not sure about paragraph one.

Agree it's not worth the hassle of trying to cheat system. I just pay for one months worth and record 20 to 40 hours of movies that month, then unsubscribe and watch them over the next 6 months or so.


Yes but your account had movies when they were recorded :p
I just know during testing and card swaps on my test box at work I have lost all my recorded programs due to the card swap.

This thread seems to be getting overly complicated and is going in circles. All the OP asked was, can he swap STBs with his mate (with cards left in the boxes) so that his mate can watch the OP's recorded movies?

Surely the answer is a simple 'yes'?

no thats not what the OP asked

"Presumably keeping the sky sim cards in our own homes."

so the answer is no

the answer is yes if you swap the cards as well
