Help! I'm new to Dreambox - 04-August-2010, 16:44

Hi! My father bought a dreambox receiver.. And he wants me to fix it to him... and I'm totally new to this with Dreambox...

I have 3 basic questions:

1. Why do I need to flash my dreambox?
2. Why do I need a another flash like Pli or something after the first flash?
3. How to use "keys" ?

Answers is much appreciated!
PS: I have Dreambox 2025...where can i get both flash files ?

Dreambox 7025 probably... not 2025
You can use DreamUP to change the firmware
You need an image compatible with your box, it's a single file with .nfi extension and a null-modem (aka crossover) serial cable.
There is another procedure to change your firmware by pressing and keep pressed the power button and plug the power cord.
This procedure starts the bootloader native in the Dreambox and using the browser you get a simple interface. Obviously your box must be connected WIRED to your lan/network.
Keys are a next step, start with the image change first, than read the tutorials available in this forum.
Have nice day and enjoy this hobby.

all the answers can be found on the tutorials. most of us spent a whole deal of the two weeks after we acquired our boxes reading and learning, i don't see why you should be different.

so read the tutorials, and if you have specific questions not answered in tutorials, use the search button.
