    Maybe you could find a dreambox forum in Europe. They'll have all the answers.

    the difference? price. ss2 and other pc dvb-s are poor man's alternative to dreambox/triple dragon, etc. most of the dreambox applications have been ported to ss2.

    of course, another difference is that you don't need to have your pc on and you can watch your shows on TV with the dreambox.

    no infact dreambox is better why, a little thing i explain

    all those channels u can watch with ss2 same channels u can watch with dreambox if u knwo how to use and what u need.

    ss2 by using progdvb or mytheater etc... crashes some time but dreambox no.

    " " " " satelite signal week means less while with dreambox signal strong.

    ss2 using cardsharing slow stability whiel dreambox fast.

    ss2 watch channels in computer or attaching a vga ty out card you can watch in tv in normal quality picture but with dreambox a super quality pictur.

    ss2 using a remore control and configure with progdvb works but for new channels or satelite need to configure again but dreambox just liek reciever no need configure .

    hope a little i explain like this there are manysssssssss

    Very informative comparison, in favor of Drambox. But consider these:

    1. You can record directly with SS2 in original quality for video and audio, and can easily burn your CDs or DVDs. Can you do this in Dreambox?

    2. With SS2, management of Channels is easy, as it can be done using the much familiar mouse and keyboard, and standard Windows functions like Cut/Paste, Copy/Move etc. You can even save a copy of your lists of Channels, Transponders, Satellites etc. Imaging doing all these functions using just the Remote control? A tedious job indeed.

    By the way, I am not promoting SS2 or any other PC based cards. I don't own a Dreambox either. In general, if you compare any two things, always there are Plus and Minus points. One has to weigh for himself what points influence one's decision.

    I own a very basic receiver and a SS2. I use the receiver whenever I want to watch programs on TV, and when I want to watch programs while in bed. Otherwise, I use SS2, as most of the time, I will be in front of my PC. With a good set of speaker system that are connected to my PC, I enjoy the stereophonic sound whenever I listen to music or while watching Action movies. A modest set of headphones also gives the good listening experience too.

    i postes mine results as i used ss2 in 2004 to 2006 and in 2007 i gotten a dreambox (i always thought it is waist of money) but really found it good.
    so i shared my experience.
