When connected and plugged into the mains the red light flashes about twice a second,forced update will not work,tried that,must be a power supply fault,has anybody seen this fault and how was it fixed,other than throwing money at it!..............Brian

Brian, have you tried a PSU out of another known good 31? Could be a software related problem I have had a few of these boxes faulty under guarantee.

Here in the South of Spain the DSB31 is'nt much use,this one is a friends,and has a card,and i dont have another power board to swap test it,it's definately the power supply as it is ticking,I do not unsolder /resolder,as i have never had much luck in that department,i leave that to the experts.If it did not have a card it would not be worth repairing,but in this case my friend is prepared to pay,he will be happy to get the bbc channels,and i dont think he can transfer the card to a better box.............Brian
