Straight from the official web site of Dreambox: "Production of the Dreambox DM500-S has been discontinued as of June 2007."

So that answers the question. Any new DM500 should be a clone. You ask who cares. Well, you get your money worth. You go cheap, you get a clone that may or may not survive in the log run. I have a clone, but somehow I am reassured because I also have a DM600 PVR original. My DM500 sometimes freezes on a Horizontal channel. It has nothing to do with the tuner. It was infected in the past with the famous ADIOS AMIGO time bomb on a Gemini 4.5. I fixed it and it's running now like a one legged man!

On the other hand, the original Box runs like a miracle. Very rare when I reboot it. Bottom line, don't wanna or can't spend some extra money, go with the flow and keep your fingers crossed.

if its brand new, then yea, its fake
should you worry though? well... depends how much you are paying, if its < 70, then no, that's the price for clones

cheers

A new clone is 50/70 euros, calculate that in the price if the asking price is still cheap
