I Hope someone help and give me the right choice,
my location is in egypt, and iam going to buy a new system consist of :
2.4 m dish,
Fuji LNB,
non diseq motor 24''
super track positioner,
but about the reciever i still cannot choose between the humax 5100 & 5400z.

the Humax 5100 costs here in egypt 850 L.E.
the Irdeto Cam costs 390 L.E.
but the Humax 5400Z costs 2100 L.E.

so it will be better to buy 5100 + Irdeto cam and it will works as a free cam after the receiver will be patched.

but what i need to know is it will be different between the mebeded cam in the humax 5400z and the external one for thr 5100 and does is hangs or no and if the humax 5400z have any other options more than the embeded irdeto cam.
another question does the Matrix cam opens more channels than the irdeto )working as a free cam) and does it hang with 5100 or not.

waiting for help,
thanx

From a personal viewpoint, I wouldn't consider buying an Irdeto CAM, would be better to go for something like a Matrix Reloaded, or perhaps a receiver with a programmable UCAS module.

Thanx rolfw for replying but i need to know does the Humax 5100 hangs when an external CAM installed or no.

And what is a UCAS module and what does it do and which receiver come with it?

Thanx For Your Help

The 5100 should be fine with a CAM, don't necessarily think that they are the best receiver around though, but I guess that you are working on what you can buy in the local marketplace.

A UCAS module is effectively an embedded universal CAM, very often, they can act as Emulators also and so for some encryptions a card is not necessary.

Are there any other receivers available where you are?
