I have a motorised dish on a humax 5400 using a fun 6 in 1 card.
Previously I was unable to access the Hispat Sat as my dish was unable to 'reach' 30 deg W
However I was thinking of repositioning the the motor and dish but wondered if the Hispat dish was worth getting.
Rumour has it that the codes for the channels on hispat get changed ever day and there may be some sort of auto updating card to be had.
I guess that leaves me asking the following questions.
1. Are there decent UK language movies and sport on hispat
2. Will my 6 in 1 card decode them
3. Am I better off with an auto update card
4. If I am will the autoupdate card work for the other sat's eg 1deg W or will have have to have 2 cards.
Thanks in advance for any help offered

Hispsat (at the moment is the BEST sat upthere) for us CRIMINALS anyway, Most PPV Film channels are multilingal, porns not (bummer) O-no , and live footys not, "good for learning spanish and portugese tough :) . and most movie channels are Multi as well, in all about 30 film channels and 5 footy, and 6 xxx mature content (plus 1 more for THEM) 'O'-red .
Changes codes every few days except weekends (they give it a rest)
Ideally you want a Magic Module or a Dedicated Nagra Cam (GEMPLUS CAM) as these have a "box key ID number" WHICH IS NEEDED TO MAKE AN AUTOUPDATE CARD, Though ive also read the Titanium card and Conax 4.04 Cam also can work. I have a Freecam and find no hassle updateing card evry couple of DAYS, (10mins). Hope this is of help.

The channels which I can get and that i watch a lot (i think it's 1 deg west) are tv1000 + cinema and the ticket channels
Since the demise of seca etc I have lost all the rest worth having eg k1 - k10, canal + etc

Shows how much I know Jimbo
The point is that since Kiosk channels and canal+ have gone there doesnt seem much left (unless someone can tell me different)
Thats why im looking to hispat to give me more options
