Bit of a head scratcher

Greetings, bit of an odd one this;
I had an old star H2 that was bricked sat in the cupboard, last night boredom got the better of me so I thought fek it ill have a go at fixing it , which after lots of swearing pluging, unpluging formatting etc of usb's I eventually did got Grog's build and ATV 6.4 on it banged a line in and there she was running like a good un .
I took it down my dads gave it to him explained how to get the net id (which is only one digit down from mine) from his vermin box etc when set up only FTA working, after lots of phone calls I thought there must be something wrong with it so off I go picks it up brings it home expecting to have to reflash it, once it had booted sky one came on as are all the other channels.( I have done nothing other than switch it on)
All he has done to wire the box is unplug his ethernet & cable feeds from his vermin box and put them into the H2 any suggestions gratefully received.

I would have also run a network test to see it was connected and if cam needed a restart.
Every thing was connected I told him to download a plugin to check and he reset the cam he does have a little nowledge of things but it was back in the days when dboxes were on there way out and we had to input keys manually
