I tried reprogramming card with rst after erasing card... wouldn't work.
used a spare card I have, did exactly the same and it worked... thanks.
Can ntl break fun cards over the network? because it happened to mine last night, I was watching then cable (and broadband) went off (all channels), didnt come back on before I went bed (1am ish), this morning fun card is not working. but services were back. A bit weird really.
