There was water ingress down one of the co-ax inputs lnb1 thus damaging the board

Ouch, i suspect the replacement board will cost as much as a new unit.

I can only suggest you ring Humax as it's unlikely they will be available in the open market due to box specific HD encryption.

Many thanks, thought that would be the case have their number though not holding out much hope
Seems a shame to condemn box just for the card
Again many thanks

Received new board today ,eventually, princely sum of £51 sorted the problem now heading out to replace dish lnb and cabling hope the weather holds up

You will have to replace your aerial cable as this is probably damaged and probably where the water got in. The tuner connector is soldered onto the board and plugs directly onto the motherboard. Hope this helps

I think he means to make sure that water cannot enter the LNB connection.
Yes it does come apart but how have to remove the main board first.

\cant really remember but it is pretty obvious when you look at the boards basically they just pull apart you may well have to take out the mainboard but it is really very easy humax charged me around £50 money well spent always better having a go
