n00b question : dreambox vs linux box - 23-November-2008, 14:25

Hi all,

I have reasonable experience setting up Linux boxes, and was wondering about the added advantage of a dreambox over a (e.g.) mythTV box?

Is there something a Dreambox can do that a pc with Linux on it can't?

Thanks for any info.

the cost is the biggest advantage to the dreambox.
building a linux box with all the accessories that would be required to match dreambox (box/processor/ram/eth card/smartcard reader/satellite decoder...) would just not justify it unless you need processing power.... which i don't see what you would use for.
Plus, a dm800 looks great and would give you hd output...

my two cents :)

Yes, and it can also play most of your .mkv files ... all in one small box :)
