    Hi all im holly,

    Im new to after dawn and all the tecnology (sorry about the spelling if its wrong) thing, nephew done all that was needed on after dawn, codes and things, but he has moved home this week, and not on net yet, what i want to know, is what is a f_n ca_d im scared to say the full name incase i get shouted at, i wish someone could explain in english as to what it is used for, i was on here last night for hours and couldnt find much to tell me execpt a link to someone who sells them and that didnt tell me much either. I have a starview, which i adore, my nephew attends to this. Has this card anything to do with another box like top up or game box or something. please if someone knows can the contact me.

    thanx

    Can you quote where it was used as maybe then we can tell by the way it's used in context , at the moment I haven't a scooby doo what you're on about myself.

    Hi guys,
    Really sorry for the riddles. What i wanted to ask what is a fun card and a smart card, and what are they used for.

    Going to throw in my 2 cents worth here, even though it's not really my thing. The smart card is what you get supplied by S*y or N*l, to stick into your dig*bo* (sly) or cable box device (n*l). As far as I know, a fun card is something that you put into something like a Technomate satellite decrypter although that may be a bad example of a box, not sure if they take a card, but that's what the fun card is, doesn't decrypt s*y though, I don't think anything will.

    Just a bit more info, the Fun Card can be purchased blank very cheap and you are then able to program it (put data code on it) which then decrypts certain channels when you put it into the card slot on your set top box, and the smart card usually has data on it and either costs a lot more to buy or is only supplied by a provider if you pay for the subscription.

    I found a nokia top up box in the attic, i forgot about it as i purchased starview box about a year ago, was wanting extra channels for it for my room, my starview box is in living room, im probably better just getting another starview box.

    thanks for the info
