Hi all, been searching through here to try and find an answer but there's too much to read through! Can soebody help? Been searching for a Humax IRCI 5400 but can only find the Z version (told that this is not as good) Also been told that the GbSat IR2CI is basically a 5400 and is a good alternative, but does it have the same support as the Humax?. Should I go for the Z or the GbSat?:( Thanks

As far as I know Ernie, once modded, the 5400Z is pretty much as good as the 5400.

hi ernie i had your problem i got humax 5400z patched and with a 6in1 card you carnt go wrong (thats my opinion) their are loads of sites for humax support and downloads if you do your own cards their is always files for humax i have not seen any for gbsat or any support sites for gbsat
hope this helps

cheers fella's. came to the same conclusion myself but wanted the experts opinion. i can make my own cards, and get the box patched through a friend, but who is the best to buy from? dont mind paying a bit more for excellent customer service and generally a decent company to deal with. (hard to find on the net):)

GBSAT 2CI0 - excellent receiver - works with any cam - but can also be patched for Irdeto/Viaccess/S*ca and Nagravision
- no cam required and a LOT cheaper than humax see here www.satsw.com for all latest embedded decryption firmware - called the Starsat (exactly same as GBSAT 2CI0 in other countries)
