    Pace BSKYB 3100 Sky+ Box not recognising FSFS Card

    Hi all, I've just aquired a Pace Sky+ box with 40Gig hard drive. I've tested it with my 1.9 PF and invacom quad with invacom feedhorn, the box appeared to work fine but on inserting either of my FSFS cards no initialisation takes place. the box seems to just refuse to recognise a card has been inserted, even the system details screen shows No Card. I have two cards bolth working in other boxes and tried bolth

    Any ideas as to what i could try to force the card reader to recognise a card or is the reader just faulty.

    All suggestions greatfully accepted

    hi
    are you putting the card into the correct slot...?
    there are twoslots on all sky digiboxes..oneis for the viewing card and one is for an interactive card - which really has not been used.
    the viewing card slot is in a small compartment with a pull down flap.

    if the card is inserted into the correct slot, and in the correct way, and still nothing is recognised, then yes the card reader is faulty.
