    Default Home setup with Hummy & Dreams ??

    Hi all.

    Looking for input on IF i'm getting correct gear for my setup & thought it best to have confirmed before i purchase..

    Hummy 5400 with reader for CS
    (Compaq Evo D51S with HDTV card, with card reader / seasons & use USb power for reader)
    then 3 x Dm500S round the house.
    2 connected via netowk cables & the 3rd via WiFi as that room doesnt have cable in it & got a LinkSys WAP54G cheap..

    Getting another card reader atm

    SO

    need confirmation that I'm setting it all up correctly ??
    DM500S's are correct unit for the job ??
    any particular image etc for the dreams to run ??

    any other input greatly appreciated.

    I can only comment on irdeto stuff as I have never tried to share my fox sub. The Compaq running greywolf midnight (you could probably just use the built in ird1 emulator if Aurora is all you want) with the hummy on one serial port, and a phoenix on the other.....you may require a usb/serial converter for the card reader if the PC only has one serial port. I found the phoenix will work off the converter but the hummy won't....don't know why. The only prob with this is if you ever get your bro's card, I don't think the NDS will work with Greywolf. You might want to go Newcs from the get go. Other than that it is all systems go.

    CoopsOz..

    thanks for that info...

    YES the Evo has 2 serial ports (1 for reader & 1 for seasons) & have tested GW863b & a genuine aurora card & worked good after i got it running.

    I wasnt sure IF the rest of the house should be done with Dm500S's or something else , but it seems that the dreams are a great choice & have a varied use for many things..

    Its just a matter if it will run "other" types of cards as easy as IR1 aurora cards...

    In the current climate I wouldn't get too carried away it your main intention is to share Ir2. Maybe a couple of dreams to play with the NDS card.

    It more than likely will. An NDS share is a good thing

    Thanks guys.

    sounds like i'm on the right track for my playing..

    So a select sub should work also..

    might be worth a play as well.. Just for the fun of it all..

    must get my order in for 3 dreams..

    merry xmas to me..

    Select subs won't share according to my readings on this forum.....they have anti sharing counter measures built in.
