Unable to find Humax 5100 in any of my mags, but as you say you have a Aston cam I presume that it has CI slot, how many?.
What dish do you have Ie: Fixed or motorised and size?, this will make a lot of differance to the number of channels you can recive, you should be able to get FTA with out problem.
Do a search for the Humax and Aston cam and see if there are any patches to bring them up to date.
Do-not worry at this stage that the receiver is not the latest on the market providing it works that is all that matters. Connect to dish and experiment.
