The equipment you have is outdated so there isnt any support for latest hacks or anything useful. If you are looking to use the equipment with official cards or just FTA channels then it will be fine, but other than that you may need something more updated to be able to benefit more. A new cam like the diablo is one way, or the Predator cam, but then you need to have a newer programmer. Sometimes its just cheaper to get a modern receiver that is easily patched and well supported, eg. a tm1000 may cost about £75 total and will do everything plus is very simple, so maybe a new cam in the echostar is not the way forward?
Really, bottom line is that the equipment you have is ok for Free-to-air and possibly ok used with official cards.
Regards.
