Why won't the sly channels work ?

A V8S box belonging to a friend has stopped showing sly channels. The code is fine. Ive crossed checked it on my box,which works no problem and the code is perfect. The box (sly channels) just stopped all of a sudden.

I did a factory reset, single satellite blind search, new channel update (Not usb) and cleared the MGCAMD line and re-installed it. Firmware update (not usb) Nothing has worked.

The box starts normally, goes 0 to 100 and all free view channels work perfect, its just the sly channels. I can't stress enough, its not the line.

Any ideas ?

Is he connected to the internet at his end. I understand you're checking the box. But have you done the fault finding it at his or just yours?

Hi Big Drinks. Thanks for your time.

His internet works at his end (he is using an android box whilst has no Openbox).
My internet has no issues either, yet still no sly on his box, despite using my line on his box (which works perfect on my own box)

Very strange.

Hi lancable. Thank you for your reply.

The provider is the same provider for the non working box, as well as mine. So I know the line is good - as mine works great on my box, but not working on the non working one.
Its definitely a box issue.

Got 3 boxes here on my shelf with same problem---after taking apart and checking I assume they are clones using the cheap quality B series of chips---they lookthe same but definitely inferior and cover the higher sky rang as it's only the sky activated/operated channels that are affected.
Channels not on the sky platform all work.
Give up--I didlol

Hi Richiej,
Yes, all set up exactly the dame as mine.

Just to explain further.
I checked his box at his house, only FTA channels received, No other channels.

At my house, where my box works on ALL channels, I tested his box, using both his gift and mine on his box. Neither worked.

Ive checked DCHP this morning on his, and its on. His settings are exactly the same as mine.

Thanks for your time and suggestions. As you can see, if the face of it being a goner, I did try. Thank You.

Clone box as Reaper suggested?? Can you send it back to the seller for a refund?

If you can't get it to work at your house with your line and everything is setup correctly then it can only be the box?

Agreed Blackwidow.

As for a return, you learn who to trust by mistakes made don't you. Thats the reason I came on this forum. I only deal with honourable people now. Thats why I started the Thread of Sharing resources, help to those who need it locally.
