Hi.
First time visiting this site, so I joined.
My very first post -
Anyone out there who has got a Humax FVAC1 digital satellite rx, I have a question or two.
Will a Viaccess 2 card work with this rx or is some update needed.
If an update is needed would it be better to buy a Viaccess cam instead and use the card through that.
I currrently have an Echostar AD3000ip looped through a F1VAC1 and have used a Viaccess "1" card in it, with no problems.
If the CAM is the answer, I could ditch the Humax and use the Echostar.

Thanks.

[updated:LAST EDITED ON 03-Jun-02 AT 08:26 PM (GMT)]Welcome to the Forum

Look at this thread http://www.satellites.co.uk/scripts/webforum/DCForumID37/135.html there are a couple of links for checking the compatability of receivers.

Thanks Rolf,

Looks as though I will have to get some sort of upgrade - do'nt want to damage the Viaccess 2 card if I get it.
As the Humax dealer is not in business any more, I will try and contact Humax for further advice, Echostar previously did not reply to my emails.

I have contacted Humax in Northern Ireland.
They say they cannot supply the Viaccess 2 software to individual rx owners because of piracy problems.
They will supply the software to an authorised Humax dealer, who in turn should upgrade the rx.
Alternatively the rx could be returned to Humax for upgrade.
If I get the upgrade and if I get a Viaccess 2 card I will post another message.

Hi
Have you registered online with Humax Customer Services Area ? You should then be able to download software updates from the web.

Lee,
Yes I have registered with HCS, but the Viaccess 2 software is not available there (see my last post)
I have downloaded the last software release, but far as I know Humax will not be releasing any new software for the F1VAC1 model. This is because there is not enough memory etc in these early models.

Regards,
Tony Fitzherbert.

There are both super and non superset models (back panel and loader differences), if you put the wrong one in then this will cause trouble

Check with the Humax.kr site for which one you have

About my fivac1 upgrade.
I returned the rx to Humax, got it back about two weeks later.
I was assured it is upgraded to include Viaccess 2 software - I have not tested it yet as I have no Viaccess 2 card.
When I started to use the rx for normal fta viewing, I was greeted with the following message which pops up all the time "Common Interface Card Initialising now". The software has been messed up and this is very annoying - I really cannot watch any fta channels now.
I will have to get the rx back to Humax again - pity they did not test it before sending it back.
When I called them, they did not seem surprised and said they would call me back - they have not to date.
P.S. When I rang one of the suppliers of Viaccess 2 cards, I was told that the Humax fivac1 may still erase the card if I try to use it - what am I to do ???

Regards,
Tony Fitzherbert.

hi
i have been told by humax dealer not to have upgrade to via2 as it is only the cam and not the rx software that is upgraded as it will have same bouqouet limmits as it is short on memory that cannot be upgraded he recomends a newer reciever that can be upgraded by satellite as they have better software and more memory and can be patched if needed hope this helps

Get somebody proficient in satellite (or even TV) to check the voltages inside the receiver

Do not attempt to check unless you know what you are doing
