www.duwgati.com is a good site for info on programmers and cards Waverider, there is a glossary of satellite terms in the FAQ section here as well.

PS. Humax just means Humax. :D

We're happy to point people in the right direction Waverider, for every one person posting a question, there are probably 10 others looking for the same answer.

guess your right rolfw .....as i said before i'm good with nuts and bolts...and normaly once i get stuck into something i learn pretty fast.....(been a mechinic for past 32 years!)..... it's just that i try to take in too much too soon through being eager....and like any field there always has to be jargon of some kind!
