    Get yourself a patched humax 5400 (make sure it is patched and therefore it can be repatched when new patch software is out). It should cost you around £300 or so and if you want to start from scratch and therefore have everything ie. receiver, dish (at least 1m), motor (Cryptic) and LNB etc my guess is from £600 to £700 with the installation.
    Now apart from this you need a programmer which is around £50 for elvis (if my memory serves me right) and couple of funcards and silver cards at around £10 each.

    Once you have the sat up and running the card bit is another part but it's quite easy..............and help is always available.

    You don't need magic module with this set up!!

    seen this on the humax site thought it may be of intrest

    Sept 27 2002

    Around 40,000 IRCI STBs recall worldwide

    HUMAX Co., Ltd. ([Only registered and activated users can see links. ]), one of the world leading digital set-top box manufacturers, announced today to recall approximately 40,000 set-top boxes, including products in the distribution networks worldwide.

    Along with the anti-piracy movement of broadcasting operators and CAS (Conditional Access System) companies, HUMAX continues to only support legal applications by recalling the product IRCI that is known to be vulnerable to pirate intruders.

    Underneath this recall event lies HUMAX's strong will and leading position against illegal activities that are currently deteriorating the growth of healthy PayTV market. The recalled IRCI products are to be strengthened with enhanced security features.

    The way things are going- you will have nothing to watch on your hummy - only 30W for now, C+Holland (and viasat 5e if your dish is at least 1.5m)- these may also go in the next 12-24months.
