CHANGE PASSWORD

It can be done in 2 ways:

1. Using the "puttytel" proggy,

2. Doing it manually with a telnet session:

-Choose "Start" and "Run" in Windows, then enter "telnet your.dyndns.adress"
-Logon with your username and password (username is always "root", password is "dreambox" from standard)
-Enter "passwd" in the session
-Enter your new password twice

Password has to be min. 5 and max. 8 letters long, and can consist of UPPERCASE/lowercase letters and numbers!




You can reset your dreambox password using dreambox remote:

1.install tuxbox commander using addons button
2. Start tuxboxcomander
3.go to in /var/etc/ and open the file passwd
4.press 4 on remote to go into edit mode.
The first line is root:*****:0:0:root:/home/root:/bin/sh
where the ****** delete it (by using remote arrows to move cursor right and then pressing volume minus)
delete *** until upto :0:0:root

and press ok and exit -> save

the first line should look like this after the edit
root::0:0:root:/home/root:/bin/sh

then login with user root and password leave empty

you could telnet and change the empty password with your own so known can easily hack into your dm box.

WATCHING AVI DIVX XVID FILES ON THE DREAMBOX

Currently the Dreambox doesn't support AVI (DivX, XviD etc.) encoded files to be played directly,
but there is a way to watch them on the Dreambox by streaming them from our PC, this is really
easy to do, should not take you more then 30 minutes, I use Gemini Project on my Dreambox but
I'm sure many other images work in similar way.
However like everything in life there are advantages and disadvantages to the streaming approach.
1) Watch DivX (MOVIES) on your Dreambox straight from a PC folder, handy if you're
continually downloading media using a client like Bit-Torrent.
2) Relying on two third-party programs to behave well, this can be tricky as the technology is
still in development and many bugs are still to be discovered.
3) Open source So-ft-Wa-re will, eventually be very stable, so be patient, and if you can, report
bugs to the developers, in return they will fix them for free ;)
4) Quality will not be the same as DVD, but with some tuning you can improve this.
5) Not the Ideal solution if your WI-FI connection breaks, I would recommend using homeplugs
instead or wires.
Lets install our 1st program on the PC, a well known and very powerful open source media player,
this will act as our streaming server, and requires very little configuration.
Download and Install your platform's VLC media player from http://www.videolan.org/vlc
On windows, run the player with this command and leave running on the background, change
192.168.blacklisted_site.blacklisted_site to your Dreambox ip address:
C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe --intf wx --wx-embed --http-host 192.168.blacklisted_site.blacklisted_site:8080
That's all for the configuration on the PC for now, some people have reported that more tuning can
be done by adding more parameters, I think it really depends on the type of system you will be
using, but for now the default settings will do the job.
Now on the Dreambox, on the blue panel download a plug-in called VLCF (Video Lan Client
Frontend) this will connect to our PC and act as the streaming client, check for updates regularly as
VLCF is still heavily developed and you can benefit from some cool improvements.
Now lets configure VLCF so that it can connect to our PC's VLC streaming server.
Use a program like UltraEdit on your PC to ftp to our Dreambox, then change the file
/var/tuxbox/config/vlcf_original.xml
See the content of the file and change server set1 of the configuration, change the ip address
192.168.blacklisted_site.blacklisted_site to your PC ip address:
<server name="set1" ip="192.168.blacklisted_site.blacklisted_site" webif-port="8080" stream-port="9090"
user="admin" pass="admin" />
Now on config set1 change the value of startdir to the PC's (MOVIES)/media directory, in my case c:\
(MOVIES) and cddrive value to the letter of your PC's DVD/CD drive, in my case d:
<config name="set1" startdir="c:\(MOVIES)" cddrive="d:" />

Don't change aything else and rename /var/tuxbox/config/vlcf_original.xml to
/var/tuxbox/config/vlcf.xml
Reboot your Dreambox, press the remote control yellow button and select VLCF plug-in from the
list, you should be able to see a list of (MOVIES) from your PC, select one to watch, you may also
pause and fast-forward from the buttons on your Dreambox.

PRESS THANKS PLEASE

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

How To Setup 2 Dreambox For Cardsharing In Lan Or Wan

This guide its to help newbies to setup 2 boxes for Card Sharing in
Lan or Wan.

You need :

2 dreamboxes ( of course)network conected
1 Network cable

a) If you connect the 2 boxes direct you need a cross network cable
if you connect the to boxes in a hub with other network devices then you need straigth network cable
(both of them easy to find in computer stores)
************************************************** ********
Network setup:
Go in dreambox setup-expert setup-network settings and put ip address (something like this)
dreambox1 : ip 192.168.0.1
subnet 255.255.255.0
gateway (ip address of the router)
DNS (ip address of the router)
If you dont have Internet connection leave Gateway and DNS blanc

dreambox2 : ip 192.168.0.2
subnet 255.255.255.0
gateway (ip address of the router)
DNS (ip address of the router)
If you dont have Internet connection leave Gateway and DNS blanc

Check the enable Networking chekbox

If you have a PC thats connect to internet (dialup or adsl) then you can put the pc's ip
as Gateway and DNS server in both boxes to give them internet access

IMPORTAND
If you have a router for the internet the ip of the 2 boxes MUST be in same
network as your router.
Examples:
If the router's Ip address is 10.0.0.1 then your boxes ips MUST be 10.0.0.2 and 10.0.0.3
If your router's IP address is 192.168.1.1 then your boxes MUST be 192.168.1.2 and 192.168.1.3

Now your boxes are connected... and with internet access (if its present)
************************************************** ********
EMU and CardSharing How to:

Install in your boxes one of new images.
I prefer PLi Diamod as gives you the choise to have separate server and client EMU.
In this example we will use as cardserver EMU the NewCS and as client EMU Newcamd
So download and install in the boxes the 2 EMUS (NewCS and Newcamd). If only 1 dreambox
it will act as a server then in the second one you dont need to install NewCS, only NEwcamd

Now we have to to configure the files for the sharing
************************************************** ********
Server configuration of the file Newcs.xml (/var/tuxbox/config)
(in the supplied zip there is a Newcs.xml file for this example)

Open the file with a plain text editor (i use UltraEdit)

Find the section <debug>
and then <udp_host>192.168.0.1</udp_host>
Here you put your server box ip

Then find <udp_port>10000</udp_port>
Here you put servers port

Find the section <newcamdserver>
and then the <name>testserver</name>
Here you put the name of your server (testserver)
Then find <deskey>01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 10 11 12 13 14</deskey>
Here you put a login key for your users in this format
Then find
<user>
<name>username1</name>
<password>userpas1</password>
<au>on</au>
<spider>No</spider>
</user>
and put user name and password for your users
************************************************** ******************************

Server and client configuration of file Newcamd.conf (/var/tuxbox/config/newcamd)

(in the supplied zip there is a Newcamd.conf file for this example)
Open the file with a plain text editor

Find the line:

CWS = 192.168.0.1 10000 username1 userpas1 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 10 11 12 13 14 lan testserver

Line parts in plain English
1)192.168.0.1 --- ip address of the server (dreambox acting as server)
(the same as the one defined on newcs.xlm)
2)10000 --- port of the server (the same as the one defined on newcs.xlm)
3)username1 userpas1 --- username and pass of the client (the same as the one defined on newcs.xlm)
4)01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 10 11 12 13 14 --- access code (the same as the one defined on newcs.xlm)
5)lan -- leave this as lan
6)cardserv - name of the cardsharing server (the same as the one defined on newcs.xlm)
************************************************** ******************************

IMPORTAND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Entrys in newcs.xml must be the same in the newcamd.conf
(ip addresses-servername-username-password-deskey)
All this is case sensitive (username it is not the same with UserName)

After saving transer the 2 files in your Dreambox and restart your boxes...
In lan setups this is ready to work
In wan setups you need a router or a dreambox plugin with DynamicDNS capabilities

You are ready to CARDSHARE

DIFFRENCE BETWEEN ORIGNAL AND CLONE
The screws at the back of the DM 800 differ from those of a clone 800. The screws for the eSATA connector are silver all other screws are black.

Image

With the cable version of the clone 800, the tuner input is a "F-connector", an original Dreambox has an IEC connector. Also interesting: every screw is black and has rough thread.

Image

The frame cover of DM 800 is painted with a structure.

Image

The frame cover the clone 800 is painted brilliant

Image

The modem of a DM 800 is covered with a not leading foil and on the back of the modem are components (IC, resistor …) to be seen

Image

At the modem of a Clone 800 is missing the foil as well as the components.

Image

Under the SC Card of a DM800 there are a lot of printed signs.

Image

Under the SC Card of a Clone there are a hand marked sign in this example an "A".
