Expert:  *ElectronicsTech replied 1 year ago.
The lock must be on the device that they use for programming. Do they have a sky box?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No Sky box just a small free view Bush box

Confirmation Yes No ? 2 Select ‘Yes’ in the box that displays and then press the OK button. 3 You will need to enter the correct password ***** the password ***** when prompted by the ‘Password’ box.
