    Happy New Year,
    Guys n Gals,

    I am bit of in pickle, some one flog me a satellite receiver Dreambox DM7000s few days ago. Explaining its very wonder full box! But now I do not have even terrestrial channel correctly some of them disappeared all together, a local installer installed the motorised dish, which cost quite bob! But now I need to know how this whole business works?
    I will be grateful if you could please explain me following terms.
    CAM what it does? Does it an extra Hware?
    2. SoftCam what this does and is it a mare software?

    3. Smart card what the heck is this? Hope not talking about credit card – blasted more money!
    4. How regular (normal) channel can be brought back?
    How the lost channel such as BB2, BBC1, Interactive, and ITV channel can be brought back. Even though I have almost managed to capture following number of satellite on this lousy DM box!

    i suggest you go to and read on the how-tos. dreambox being driven by linux can be intimidating. if all else fails, ship it over to me, i'll cover the costs if you want and will forever be thankful to you, lol.
