Exclamation Get The Original Dreambox DM 500 - 09-May-2008, 13:10


Plagiarisms of the Dreambox DM500-S are in the market

We like to inform all our customers and dealers that there are illegal copies of the Dreambox DM 500 on offer.
We advise against unlawful trade and purchase!
It is about a cheap reproduction of the device. But laities can be cheated easily by the identical appearance and aquire the imitation in good faith.

Distinctive Features:

The remote control is a major identifier of the original.

More differences to be found in the quality of used material and the neglected workmanship. The duplicates are poorly coated and badly processed. Screws are missing at the tuner modules and SCART jacks on the reverse side. The Enigma User Interface is also an illegal copy; the transponder scan functions does not work correctly which means not all channels can be found.

An older release of the DM 500 mainboard from 2004 has been copied and this illegal DM500 version is not CE certified and hence, has no approval.
“Dreambox, Dream Multimedia”, and the Dream logo are registered trade marks and may be used solely by Dream-Multimedia on genuine products.

We explicitly state that we will take legal action against the manufacturers, distributors, and providers of the Dreambox-copies. For successful prosecution and conviction of this illegal trade rings we offer a reward of €10,000 for each individual case.
In case you have any information about manufacturers, distributors, and providers of the Dreambox-copies please contact our head office in Luenen/Germany immediately at tel. +49 (0) 231 900387-0 or by e-mail. Upon request your statements will be treated confidential.

We do not issue a guarantee nor shall be liable for any damages of or caused by the faked boxes and/or arise from our original software to these items.
