Question Dreambox - 18-July-2009, 15:48

I am completely new to card sharing and would seek some advice and guidance before I commit myself to ordering the equipment, therefore I would be grateful if any members could provide answers to the following:

1) I mainly watch sports in H.D. what is the best Dreambox for me

2) Do any Dreamboxes have a built in Wifi option, or if its Wifi ready does it need an adapter

3) Will I need a H.D. splitter from the Dreambox to the T.V.

4) I currently have the Sky package complete with H.D. box, on the Dreambox can you still use "say" the E.P.G. and the Sky + remote to record

5) I also have a 5400 Humax complete with motorised dish which I intend to replace with a Dreambox

6) If the Dreambox does not have a built in Wifi could I use a wireless NETGEAR Wall-Plugged Ethernet Bridge XE102 - bridge or similar to transfer a signal from my P.C.

7) I currently have a signal sender connected to my HUMAX which sends the signal from my living room to the bedroom, can the Dreambox do a similar function

8) Good reputable suppliers names and websites

9) I am keen to get this moving and therefore I would appreciate all the assistance any member can give me

1. DM800 or DM8000 if you can afford it.

2. DM8000 has built in wifi, DM800 will work with usb wifi adapter.

3. Both boxes use DVI to HDMI connection(audio included).

4. No, you can use dreambox remote to record and pause live T.V. if HDD is installed.

6. I am currently using TP Link network plugs with my Netgear router.

7. I used sender with my DM500 so should work.

8. PM me & i'll tell you where i got mine.(not sure if i can post link).

4. there are plugins to setup your dreambox to record specific programs at specific time.

5. you can give your humax to me, or sell it to offset the cost of the bloody dm800/8000

6. you can use wired ethernet, or if you really like to have wireless, then a wireless ethernet bridge is in order like the linksys WET54G

7. a) if you mean a wireless audio/video sender, the function is irrelevant to whatever device you connect it to because it will transmit audio/video regardless of the source.

b) if you mean a remote extender, the function is irrelevant to whatever device you connect it to because it will send the same IR commands, whatever the receiver maybe.

8.) the best of course is your local store where you can yell and nag them if things don't turn out well as expected compared to online shops wherein you have to call them and spend a fortune on telephone bills.

9.) read the tutorials, spend some time understanding everything and post or follow up a thread which you think might have a similar trouble that you may encounter (hopefully not).

Question Dreambox Or Similar - 20-August-2009, 13:44

I am on a roll now with all the feed back I have received and before I order my DM 800 HD PVR I need to make sure that the Homeplugs I use are the correct type, the suggested one's to date are WET54G and the NETGEAR Wall-Plugged Ethernet Bridge XE102.
Any other recommendations will be appreciated

(20-August-2009 23:10)
I have seen what is described as DM 7020 Si Satellite Receiver and DM 800 HD PVR Satellite Box, could any members tell me if there is a difference between a RECEIVER and a BOX ??

I am getting all my facts right and gathering as much information as I can before committing myself to a Dream Box
All help will be appreciated

I am a little concerned about ordering my DreamBox 800 HD PVR as its seems that there is a big difference in prices being quoted i.e. 399 down to 220.
I am not to sure wether the lower price ranges are "cloned" boxes, I have tried to phone the suppliers in question but getting a phone number is impossible.

I have listed 3 suppliers and it would help if any members are familiar with these suppliers or have done business with them, the web sites are as follows :

Ubattery.co.uk, Your Professional Laptop Battery Expert

DVBMonkey.com - Dreambox 500C, Dreambox 500S, Dreambox 7020 Dreambox 600S, Dreambox 600C (Powered by CubeCart)

DreamBox 500C, DreamBox 500S, DM 7020S, Dreambox DM 600 PNR

I hope I have kept within the rules of the Forum

All help will be appreciated
