Talking New to Dreambox - 09-June-2008, 16:54


Just my intro: I'm a big football fan and am mostly interested in satellite to see live football. Will also sit down and watch a movie occasionally. We already have a UK Sky (Plus) digibox with subscription to family package including Sky Sports. Costs me about 720/year. That's really for family viewing and my 3 kids are addicted to it, especially Sky plus features - easy recording & ability to pause live TV.
On the hobby side, I have a separate 90cm motorised dish. I used various receivers over the last few years. These include the SL55 (Lidl Comag), SkyStarII PC card, Technomate TM1500CI and now the DM500S.
I've heard many good things about the dreambox and having had one a couple of weeks I'm on a steep learning curve. To date I've downloaded the Eagle V3 image and managed to get some success with Astra 1.
I've tried the NGRAB feature (recording to PC hard disk over ethernet) - it's working but lots of jumping & skipping on playback. I need to fault-find that.
I also intend to see if I can get my valid subscription card working with the DM500S (on Astra2).
Finally I'd like to learn something about card sharing possibilities.
