Does your programmer recognise the card Benny? If it does, it may be that the card is just slightly loose in the card reader of the /humax.

Ive put the original firmware back in,re patched the receiver and re proggrammed the card.All to no avail. But now if i try to program the card the programmer will not write to the eeprom.
Ive had the system for 3 years and this is the only problem so its a bit odd. Ive also got a gold card and its not writing this either.
the programmer is a millenium with cardmaster software.

Any ideas ?

I've no experience with the Millennium/Cardmaster combination. I use an Elvis and Multiprog 3.4/3.5. However, on the odd occasion that I've had problems with card recognition, I've used the erase function on the programmer and started from scratch, as if I were using a new card. That has always sorted the problem.

Also Benny, try cleaning the contacts on the card with meths or similar. I get card recognition problems with my programmer and this clears it.
