Technology is moving fast to catch up on everything as it was difficult to keep up with innovations in satellite earth “Dreambox” technology is not new, but many of us still get a text :)
Dreambox `s biggest feature only one satellite receiver is that there is actually a mini computer (power-pc’s called) operating system memory (usually flash memory) and other necessary hardware as a PC plus a satellite receiver feature is located on.
Our memory refers linux operating system flash memory instead of hard disks on some models, you can connect USB memory can record broadcasts in capacity are increased. What a lot of advantages compared to other receivers though there’s no limit to channel a variety of computer programs by establishing simple web server, mail server, in this case, of course, be used as a low battery in DreamBox will need to know how to use the Linux version
What is Dreambox? Dreambox Wiki
Dreambox The Linux-based production software originally used by Dreambox was originally developed for DBox2, by the Tuxbox project. The Dbox2 was a proprietary design distributed by KirchMedia for their pay TV services. The bankruptcy of KirchMedia 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.
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 MPEG transport streams on Network file systems or broadcast the streams as IPTV to VideoLAN and XBMC Media Center 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.
In 2007, Dream Multimedia also introduced a non-Linux based Dreambox receiver, the DM100, their sole to date, still featuring an Ethernet port. It has a USB-B port for service instead of the RS232 or mini-USB connectors found on other models. Unlike all other Dreamboxes, it features an STMicroelectronics CPU instead of PowerPC or MIPS.
Dream-box things entrants in the market is the convenience of the users passwords servers :) abroad with links established with the server you are connecting to the internet Dreambox and passwords are constantly updating :)
You know over the computer satellite broadcasts, once very interested could see though still current for the job most famous digital tv card skay star 2 on our computer this card insert pro-dvb program with satellite monitors in dvd quality record were even via satellite, a lot of file download could (hook) Anyway let’s not get into this subject: D now we use a single device to these jobs will feed
But when buying Dreambox technical support updates the status of the password search settings, etc. will occupy a lot about
