E120E120-4Smartcard SynchronisationLoss of Time dependant information and synchronisation information.
Loss of data streamed from the Head End
Wait 5 -10 seconds, in normal conditions decoder, should recover and error should clear – DO NOTHING.
If it does not, it is very unlikely to be a decoder or SC problem, but a central problem at the Head End.
Premium smartcard time-dependent functionality. Delivery of this time/date information is repeated @ specific time intervals. When the decoder has been switched off for a while (or even just rebooted), this time/date information between the smartcard and the actual broadcast goes out of synch, forcing the Premium smartcard to re-acquire this info for it to start working again. That is when the decoder starts displaying the E120-4 error message on the TV screen. Message should only display for 5 to 10 seconds, UNLESS the information from MC is interrupted/not being broadcast.
E133E133Seen sometimes but detailes not available
E143E143-4Home gateway HNA expiredA transmission error from MC

OR after a s/w upgrade on either of the decoders
E144E144-4Your decoder or smartcard has not been correctly set up on MC’s side
Wrong Home Network
On some decoders, a failure during a s/w upgrade may trigger these error messagesEnsure your install is correct and that ALL cables are correctly connected. If a s/w upgrade was in progress, then redo the upgrade.Some Installs with HD PVR 2Ps only connected with one input cable will tend to cause a froced upgrade to fail, which then gives this error.
