    Default DVBKEY's Dreambox


    A friend of mine (fireeater- a member of this forum) has purchased 3 dreamboxes from DVBKEY and one is totally dead. I happened to test it myself and found it to be not booting up. Also flashing a new image gets struck at the outset.
    Is there any clue from members for this?

    Well contact DVBKEY... maybe you need a replacement.

    3 solutions i have found to work.

    1 boot the box with ONLY the vdo output connected
    2 leave the box unplugged for a few hours
    3 flash using ONLY serial cable. disconnect all other cables

    this happens on clones as well as originals

    First of all, I would like to thank Mr.Felician for this thread.

    Thats right I purchased initially one DM 500s, working and good condition. then I decided to go for another three Dms. I received those last friday. since I am a newbie in this field, Mr.Felician helped me to flash the gemini images to the DM boxes. we succeeded with two which are working, but one failed. we connected to the TV set, completely blank.

    I tried to contact DVBKEY, he was not answerable. then two days ago could able to catch him in skype. and sent the screen shots, but without mentioning anything he vanished. yesterday I contaced him again he said "now its chinees newyear season and we celebrate for a month".

    Intially I asked him whether to send the box to him, he said no need. then I asked for a replacement, but he didnt tell anything. then I asked for the DM500 motherboard, he said he will consider after one month.

    note: "skype conversation available with me I shall post later"
    in RDI he didnot reply at all.
    @DVBKEY: please reply

    First of all Chinese New Yeard does not go for one moneht only for several days from 06 February.

    DVBKEY swamped under a snowstorm so I have been advised his server is not working on some services also. Maybe no signals.

    I'm sure he's pretty busy right now trying to keep everying running.

    we tried all the available options, and ultimately came to the conclusion that one DM500s is defective.

    I think he deserves a replacement as soon as possible.

    This will ensure DVBKEY's credibility.
