    Try to load any image you want ...the popular choices are GP/Gemini Pproject or PLI. When you use dreamup s/w with rs232 and lan cable...the software will be the one to assign the ip address to the dreambox using your laptops configure network settings.

    You can download the images available from dreamboxworld.com

    You then configure the network patameters of the dreambox in the menu on the tv screen.

    Try to load the factory image first using dreamup. If it still hangs, then there is a problem with your box....if not, then try to load other images besides GP.

    Forgive my answer but I dont like spoonfeeding. You were determined enough to get a dreambox so I think you'll figure it out where to get the factory default image. The original dreambox is a german product and has it's own website offcourse. Just a bit of google will do it.

    Peace brother!

    When using dreamup software, make sure you are using the correct version for DM500, because the version for DM7000 which appears the same, does not work. I had this problem myself when trying to load an image to a flash corrupted DM500. When I used the correct version, it worked in one go.

    I got the dreaumup from the RDI Dreambox site here:
