The Humax is still certainly a very good receiver, but it is no longer the only game in town. The Technomate is a cracking receiver, as are some of the Force units, Echostar receivers with the Echonav software can be patched to make a Eurocam perform as a Freecam and there are a host of budget UCAS receivers around at very reasonable prices, which effectively have a built in Magic Module.

Hi,
Depending on his needs, there are a variety of receivers to choose from. Details can be found here .
You can also purchase a cam, Ird2 (patched for 6 in 1), MM etc at a special price.
Regards,
B
