Hi everyone.
Here i am with another problem. After the good pointers, given to me by BGonaStick and T_G, i face a much more tricky problem.
Networking the DB was relatively simple, but the problem appears when i try to upload an image or have it networked for plus than 5 minutes. IT BLOCKS COMPLETELY!!!! Doesn't answer to the remote control, to the software from the PC, nothing!!!
At first i thought that was because of the connection speed, an i lower it from 100 to 10, in full mode. The problem persists.
Can anybody help me and tell me what's hapenning?
:confused

When you say 'blocks' do you mean crashes/locks up/dies/falls over?

Does it happen repeatedly, and at the same point?

Have you tried different versions of the software?

Can't remember, are you on a 5620 or a 7000, and do you have the correct software for the box?

Is the box nice and cool?

It locks up, after a short period of time. About 5 minutes.
It does happen repeatedly.
I´m on a 5620, and i'm almost 100% sure that i have the right software and the right image. I went to www.i-have-a-dreambox.com, to get the image and some software. I've downloaded the Terminator v9 image, from the 5600/5620 section.
No matter what i'm doing, or just turn on doing nothing, it stops responding to the front panel buttons or to the remote control.
I have to turn it off, on the button in the back panel, forcing it to reboot.
What's the matter???

Well, sometimes you just have to accept that the image doesn't work for you and move on. There are plenty of other images, and you're bound to find one that works for you, and that you like. Shouldn't think for a minute that it's your box that is at fault. Try one of the Hydra images.

Hi, T_G.
I have to apologize to both. I haven't been working on the DB, because i'm upgrading my computers, and installing Linux/W*nd*ws. I will restart on DB today. You'll hear from tonight or tomorrow.
Thanks for the support to both.

No need for that. Just let us know how you got along
