    Who are Dreambox?


    The Dreambox is a Linux-powered DVB satellite, terrestrial and cable digital television decoder (set-top box), produced by German multimedia vendor Dream Multimedia. It is very simlar to the DBox2 units. Its firmware is officially user-upgradable, since it is a Linux-based computer, as opposed to third-party "patching" of alternate receivers. All units support Dream's own DreamCrypt conditional access (CA) system, with software-emulated CA Modules (CAMs) available for many alternate CA systems. The built-in Ethernet interface allows networked computers to access the recordings on the internal hard disks on some Dreambox models. It also enables the receiver to store digital copies of DVB transport streams on networked filesystems or broadcast the streams as IPTV to VideoLAN clients. Unlike many PC based PVR systems that use free-to-air type of DVB receiver cards the built-in conditional access allows receiving and storing encrypted content.

    The combination of third-party developers and network connectivity which facilitates card sharing, makes Dreambox use particularly common among enthusiasts and those who intend to obtain services without payment. Third-party software for this purpose is neither officially endorsed nor supported by Dream Multimedia and voids the official warranty; however, unofficial web sites support a large community of enthusiasts.

    Models

    There have been a number of different models of Dreambox available. The numbers are suffixed with -S for Satellite, -T for Terrestrial and -C for Cable:

    DM 7000 (discontinued)

    The DM 7000 has 64 MB of RAM, 8MB of flash memory, a Common Interface slot, a dual smart card reader, a Compact Flash card reader, a USB 1.1 port, and an PATA (a.k.a. IDE) interface for attaching an internal 3.5" hard disk drive to convert the unit into a digital video recorder.

    DM 56X0 (discontinued)

    There was a 5600 and also a 5620 model. The only difference being that the 5620 included an ethernet port. Otherwise, the DM 56X0 models were a cut down version of the DM 7000 without an IDE interface. They did, however, include an RF modulator allowing them to be used with older TVs that lack a SCART connector.

    DM 7020

    The DM 7020 is essentially an updated DM 7000 with 96 MB of RAM, 32 MB of flash and an RF modulator. Changes were also made on the software side, utilising Open Embedded [1] for the base Linux operating system.

    DM 500

    The DM 500 is the successor to the 5620 and is the smallest and cheapest Dreambox, with a 252 MHz PowerPC processor and Ethernet connectivity, as well as the standard features of a free-to-air (FTA) satellite receiver, including MPEG 1 & 2 hardware decoding, plus a single smart card reader.

    DM 7025

    The DM 7025 is essentially a DM 7020 with the ability to add a second "snap-in" tuner that makes it possible to watch one programme while recording another; it features a Xilleon 220 system-on-chip from ATi, integrating a 300 MHz MIPS CPU (instead of the traditional PowerPC), and 128 MB of RAM.

    Software

    The Linux-based software used by Dreambox was originally developed for DBox2, by the Tuxbox project. The Dbox2 was a proprietary design distributed by Kirch Media for their pay TV services. The bankruptcy of Kirch Media flooded the market with unsold boxes available for Linux enthusiasts. The Dreambox shares the basic design of the DBox2, including the Ethernet port and the PowerPC processor.

    The factory-installed distribution on the Dreambox is mostly available under the GNU General Public License (GPL) and uses standard Linux API's, including Linux DVB API and Linux Infrared Remote Control (LIRC). This configuration encourages enthusiasts to modify its functions, particularly in the form of so-called images such as SDT Da Vinci.

    In addition, unofficial third-party conditional access software modules (CAMs or emulators) are widely circulated on the Internet that emulate the CA systems developed by VideoGuard, ****** Access, Conax, Nagravision, Viaccess and other proprietary vendors.

    Recommendation:
    If you don't install the Image in flash memory, the flash image shouldn't be of a old version. A swap file/partition (>= 16MB) should be present
    if several processes running in background.

    Download via Database

    one tip for all DREAMBOX users.
    "how can you check the date of your product?"
    example 5B2209(serial number)
    5 -> date of produce (2005)

    B -> month of produce (hexadecimal)

    1=Jan,
    2=Feb,
    3=Mar,
    4= Apr,
    5=May,
    6=Jun,
    7=Jul,
    8=Aug,
    9=Sep,
    A=Oct,
    B=Nov,
    C=Dec.

    22 -> date of month

    09 -> Model:

    09 = DM7020
    01 = DM7000
    10 = DM5600
    11 = DM5620
    20 = DM500
    it means this is a DM7020 made on 22.11.2005 year

    OK!
    FIRST YOU MUST HAVE A RS232 NULL MODEM CABLE AND NETWORK ETHERNET CROSS CABLE
    EVERYONE WHO HAVE PC AND INTERNET KNOWS.THAT IS A NETWORK CABLE BUT IT MUST BE CROSS CABLE.
    FIRST THE PROCEDURE FOR PUT IMAGE ON YOUR DREAMBOX:
    DOWNLOAD THE UNIVERSAL "DREAMUP" AND THE NEWEST IMAGE.I SUGGEST TO BE A "GEMINI 3.50"
    Unplug the DreamBox from its power.
    Connect a Null Modem Cable between the PC and the DreamBox. A plain serial cable WILL NOT work! Also connect you Network cable.
    Start the Universal DreamUp program on your PC and you will see the following screen:
    Check the Use Network box.
    You will potentially see a drop down box giving you choices for the local IP. This is your PC IP and needs to be in the format of 192.168.0.xxx or 192.168.1.xxx or something similar. The 192.168.238.238 will not work in this example.
    Click Connect.
    When it says to switch on the dreambox please plug in the DreamBox.
    Click Flash Erase and select Ja (Yes).
    You will see the following screens showing you the flash erase is complete:
    Click Flash and browse to the image of your choice, most likely GEMINI, and select it.
    Answer Ja to the flash erasing during the process.
    The image will begin uploading to the DreamBox 500 and then erase the flash and begin flashing the image.
    It will tell you when the process is finished.
    Disconnect from the Null Modem Cable and connect to your TV.

    Configuring Your Network
    Equipment:
    1. Router or switch.
    2. PC with NIC (Ethernet card).
    3. CAT5 LAN cable connecting the PC to your router and your DreamBox to the router. You can use a wireless LAN/Bridge in place of the hard-wired system if you prefer. (A crossover cable also works for those too cheap or lazy to construct a home network.)
    Decision Point: Do you want a static or a dynamic IP?
    A static IP is necessary if you plan to do any recording and if you want to depend on having the same IP when you get ready to use DCC or DreamBoxEdit. DHCP is a protocol that allows a router or other equipment to change your IP address as it sees fit. If you use DHCP the DreamBox IP may or may not change every time you reboot the DreamBox. When the IP changes you will not be able to connect from your PC unless you realize that the IP setting has changed. DHCP is easier if you do not understand how to get your network settings. There are two ways to get a static IP.
    1. Uncheck the DHCP box on Satellite Configuration and enter the correct numbers. (This is the recommended method for obtaining a static IP.)
    2. Check off DHCP and tell your router to “reserve” a specific IP for your DreamBox.
    Recommended Procedure for using DHCP:
    The Nitro image comes preconfigured with DHCP as the default so nothing is necessary if you want to use DHCP.
    Remember, using DHCP allows your PC or router to assign a new IP address to the DreamBox. If the IP changes, you will have to change the IP in DreamBoxEdit, DreamBox Control Center, and FlashWizard.
    Recommended Procedure for Setting up a Static IP:
    1. Determine your Network settings if you want a static IP.
    a. You will need the IP address of your router and decide what IP you plan to use for the DreamBox. I recommend using 192.168.0.24 for your DreamBox since some software comes preconfigured with that IP.
    b. Your DreamBox and router must have the same numbers in the first 3 sections of their IPs. i.e. If your router is 192.168.0.1 use 192.168.0.24 for your DreamBox. If the router is 220.120.34.6 then use 220.120.34.24 for your DreamBox.
    c. If you are not sure of your network settings you can find them from your PC. Go to Start and click Run and enter cmd in the blank without the quotes. Enter ipconfig at the prompt. IP Address is the address of the PC you are on. Subnet mask should usually be 255.255.255.0. Default Gateway will be used later and is typically your router IP. (You can initially select DHCP on the DreamBox Communications menu and the DreamBox will fill in a few numbers for you. You can use the numbers to change to a static IP.)
    2. Press the Menu button to bring up the toolbar at the bottom of the screen. Look for the Setup icon and press OK. Go to Expert Setup then to Communication Setup.
    3. Here you will enter the addresses for your network so you can communicate with the DreamBox from other PCs and so you can get to the Internet from the DreamBox if needed. This is also the location for choosing DHCP.
    DHCP: Uncheck this box or you won’t be able to fill in the following blanks.
    IP: Is the IP of your DreamBox. Assign it as described above. Usually, 192.168.0.24.
    Netmask: Just about always 255.255.255.0.
    Type: LAN
    Nameserver: Is usually the IP of your router. Usually 192.168.0.1.
    Gateway: Is usually the IP of your router. Usually 192.168.0.1.
    Be sure to check the Enable Network box and select save by pressing the Green button or highlighting save and pressing OK.
