As Thomas says you must have a card and it must have been activated.
No "kill hit" signal was sent to receivers plugged in and active--in
other words the receiver had to be legit and service paid up. Ours
still works just fine. There were a bunch of receivers stolen at one
point and have been selling on ebay to unwary purchasers.

on ebay had a card but it had been deactivated when voom went out of
business. When they sent the "kill hit" the satellite feed or the
receiver had to be unplugged for it to work. The good news is that
there are a lot of active receivers for sale on ebay. They usually
sell for around $60.00.
