Default Smart Card Not Authorized

Lately all of my receivers have been displaying a message that the Smart Card is not authorized to relieve the current channel. Wait a couple of minutes or reboot the machine and all is fixed. Anyone else experience this?

I noticed that once this week, too. Wonder if it has something to do with the channels being moved around on the satellites?

Any chance that it is humid where you are? That has happened many times in the past, I now keep dehumidifier on, and air conditioning on just for my receivers!

Had the same thing twice this week with our 4100 but thankfully not the 9241 (which uses an "internal card"). I think tofinoguy has the right idea regarding the 82->91 switchover since we rarely watch the SD channels on the HD PVR.

Not particulariy humid (I'm in Whistler); I've got a 9242 so no physical card anyway. Haven't seen the error since.

Coincidentally, one of my 9242's froze on one image while it was recording a program and the the pop-up window came up. Haven't checked to see if the program recorded or not, but all I did was hit guide, and all was well again, I did not have to reboot.

I did a re-hit and that solved the problem for me.

A few times that has happened to me recently. I don't watch much live so it was during recorded shows. Only lasted for a few seconds each time but annoying still!
