echostar 880 patch?

I'm just getting back into the old 'Sat' game after relocating over to Spain a few years back and have lost touch a bit with current 'goings on' !!

I have just secured an Echostar dsb880 (2ci) for 160 Euro's and I am steering a little towards the matrix reloaded cam and Titanium card.

Will I need to have the receiver patched?

Also, I intend to motorise my 1.1m dish and trust this will suffice for the majority if not all req sats / transponders?

Any advice welcome and appreciated
