Nice Warm Dreambox 7000 - 10-April-2007, 15:49

I think I am about to experience the impending doom of my DM 7000. It appears to be getting quite warm. I have Maxtor 250GB harddrive which was inside the box, and is now outside to try and dissipate the heat. I have a nice almost melted BSkyB FreeSat card which is looking a bit the worse for wear - and the TV picture was breaking up until I turned it off about an hour ago.

I have just unplugged the maxtor and stuck it inside an external USB cover with an external power supply to try and lower the power consumption coming out of the DM. I was hoping for a fan to cool the Maxtor down but this usb box doesn't have one.. I think it must have been in another box. Oh well. I ignored the USB interface and have the ide cable coming out of the box and into the back of the dream. If there is any good reason to use USB I will, but this I am assuming would run much faster. (The dream is only USB 1 right?)

Any ideas.. Should I add a case fan to it somehow.. Anyone else having this sort of problem.

I tend to leave the DM on all the time as it's running GBox, is there some merit in hitting the power button and killing the TV output.

Placing the hdd outside the box usually does the trick but if the box is still running hot; it's maybe time for creating a linuxserver because that's a lot cheaper than buying a new box!

Don't have a card reader yet on the Gentoo box..

I am thinking maybe of getting one and a Haugppage MVP to display VDR's output on a TV.

Willem
Sells cheap phoenix interfaces.

maybe thats the one for you



A dreambox needs a lot of "breathing" space so don't built the box in.



If you feel the need use the button.

That looks nice, good price too.

Anyone know what it's like with NDS cards? My DM reads it at about 5.3mhz, not sure what frequency this will run at..

You could mail willem, but on the photo I see 2 x-tals and a jumper so the speed is adjustable from 3.5 to 6 MHz I think.

Hi, I got one of these, but don't know how to get it working. I got the twin model which looks like it's USB powered, but serial. I have plugged it in to /dev/tts/0 or /dev/ttyS0 but can't get gbox or newcs to see it..

[ 21:23:14 ] [ Loader ] Reader type 2 on node /dev/tts/0
[ 21:23:14 ] [ Phoenix ] Opening device /dev/tts/0
[ 21:23:14 ] [ Phoenix ] Setting Parity to: ODD
[ 21:23:14 ] [ Phoenix ] Setting 1 Stop bit on node /dev/tts/0
[ 21:23:14 ] [ Phoenix ] Setting Baud to standard 9600
[ 21:23:14 ] [ Phoenix ] Normal RESET on node /dev/tts/0

enx_conf = 3 ; reset on zap=0
Total 1 ports to monitor
monitoring port: 33333
CPU 80X86 compatible
using LinuxTV api3
TPSCrypt 1 PTS 1/1
configs # /dev/ttyS0 opened with 1 multicam(s)
mode: any pid
entering main loop

But no cart seen..

When the card is in a red light comes on. However, it goes off if you push the card too far.
