    Default Foxtel

    I have a Platinum Foxtel package with one box.

    I picked up a Foxtel by Amstrad box during a council clean up.

    Question

    Can this box be used in a different room by swapping my card into it.

    Or, do I just chuck the box in the bin

    cards are married to the decoders so the one you found can go back to the landfill
