You can display the test card on any reasonably new Freeview receiver, DTV or PVR using the following steps. Note that some older set top boxes do not fully conform with the specifications and may be unable to access this service.

1. Tune to the BBCi channel (currently ch. 250)
2. When the BBCi background appears, press Yellow (within 30 secs)
3. Tune away to a different channel
4. Tune back to the BBCi channel (currently ch. 250)
5. When the BBCi background appears, press Green (within 30 secs)
The word 'Secret' will appear in the top right hand corner
6. Wait until the status page appears
7. Press green and wait for the testcard will appear.
