As for the 6 in 1 files for a hummie, there is a difference between the freecam 1 and the patched hummie. both versions are usually together when you download (chose file for hummie). Diff between allcam & freecam is who's writing what files for what?
and Freecam is far more popular (in fact not seen many allcam files) as for hummie 5400 ver 5400z a year ago all the talk was
that the z ver was dogshite/grey import .The 5400 was a hardwired patch,(designed by GOD i meem PHiLL) where the 5400z was then found to have a firmware/software patch
recognised by Humax (so warrenty still valid) and cheaper to patch.

i'm about to buy a humax 5400 with an allcam patch, does this mean i will have difficulty using silver/fun cards with this receiver?

cheers

this is all news to me.

I thought allcam would emulate the following formats

Seca 1 & 2
Viaccess 1 & 2
Irdeto 1 & 2
Nagravision
Betacrypt
TPScrypt


using the right 5in1, 6in1 or even 8in1 programmed card of course.

Is this correct - I want to get as many channels as i can for the footy?

I believe that this is probably a confusion over names, there was an old irdeto cam patch called Allcam, but it was updated to Freecam, the Humax multiprovider patch is I believe, still called Allcam, or possibly +cam, but does the same number of providers as the Freecam.

I'm not too well versed on the Humax, but i'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong.

PS. They are fairly easy to flash anyway if they have an older version, but by nature of it being the newer model of receiver, I would imagine it has a later version

Just checked with a mate with a hummie and your correct Big R. The (allcam) denoted with the 5400z is really (freecam) and the 5/6in 1 files files for hummies all work on this basis.So no problems with the files (not got any info on the 8 in 1). DAVE.
