Hi everyone,

I have an Echostar DSB 890 with am MR'd cam (1220). Everything, except cabo at the moment, works fine but if I leave the sat for a couple of days I find that the cam is not recognised and I have to physically take it out and put it back in the slot. Hey presto!
all is right with the world again. Has anyone else had this problem and if so is there a fix?

Regards Jaxom

Do you leave the receiver in standby mode or do you unplug it.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

A lot of receivers are running close to their limits with these powerful new generation CAMs. Some have temporary issues with the connections and recognition (later Manhattans and earlier Echostars) wont initialise them at all (earlier Manhattans, Humax 5400 /Strong4400)

Thanks for your replies guys. I turn the sat to standby which I think is the best thing. I guess I will just have to put up with it. The problem is that the cam fits so tightly I have to use a pair of pliers to pull it out! Thankfully it dosen't seem to cause any problems when loading the new firmware.
