    the SatANTOUT is the loop out, you can connect another receiver from this. only thing is that you can watch channels on the same polarity with that of the other STB. if you change polarity on either receiver, you will lose the signals on either one or both of the stb.

    as for the receivers here in kuwait, nothing much. get a humax5400z or samsung dsr9500. most of the receivers available nowadays in hawally are new and i have not tested their support. most of the dealers here in kuwait, like NHE and RTG are selling receivers then stop support after a few months, so you will buy their NEW MODEL, lol. i got myself yet another metabox3. proven support, kinda stable and for 22kd (2 ci 1 CAM) it's already a bargain.

    other STB that i know of having regular software patches (not just here in kuwait) are Samson, euroline DS555 and vivax. there are topfield, dreamboxes available but the price is almost double than what you can find from online stores.

    in hawally, emetabox1 FTA is 18kd. 21kd for metabox2 and 22kd for metabox3. comes in the name of Discovery JSR also. there is a small shop in front of the RTC shop, they are the ones having metabox3 as it is out of the market as of this time.

    Jetix is under Polsat i believe, so it cannot be opened at this time. CN and others no problem at all.

    im not at all familiar with the minute differences between the two. i think the Z is "patched" or something. ask masood for details. you can get the 5400Z for 70kd on most shops.

    @rat72
    Thanks a lot, does that mean 5400 IRCI is better than z?

    @boknoy_ph
    We are happy that u live in the RDI server.

    I called a shop in Hawalli and they said that humaxIRCI 5400 is single card system and is 35kd.Where as humax 5400z has 3 card system with cam and price is 75kd.I did not understand but what i want to know is with 5400 IRCI will i be able to get the channels like cn and jetix?
    or should i go for 5400z?

    you should go for 5400z and wait for a while for some days to price to come down it may go as less as kd55 as before two month, because of world cup the reciever price is shut up so be cool if you are in hurry or if u have any contact in dubai then buy it from dubai, thats your wish i dont know which mad fellow told u that 5400 is a single card u pm me the dealers number whom u called. regards

    lol... yeah there is a humax with one ci slot, but not the 5400z. go for the 5400z and yes, wait up for the price to go down a bit. rat72, don't go mad, heheheh. you know the satellite business here in kuwait. once the mullahs and influential politician wants to make a scene, they raid the shops. after their picture has been posted in the newspapers, all smiling and looking dandy, the business in Hawally goes back to normal.
