OK, I was on here once before about this. About 4 or 5 months ago my vip 622 started giving me the Smart Card not inserted correctlly message. I logged on here and Scott and few others told me to try a pencil eraser, on the gold square and put it back in. I did that and it worked. But now it is doing it again. I tried the eraser trick again, and a dollar bill, but alas nothing. Anyone no any other fancy tricks with card or the slot that might work? It did it Wednesday, and I got it to come back until today again. Now it won't come back. I'm thinking it just is having trouble reading the card. Anything I could do to the slot. Anything I can do if I pull the cover off? It's not working, so I'm game for anything. I have a new receiver coming, but kind of bummed no TV in the living room all weekend.
