Hi

I'm new to dreamboxes and am thinking of buying one. As I currently have a Technomate 1000D but want to get an ART card.

But I have seen Dreambox 500S and 500Si for sale? Whats the difference?

Also, will an ART card work fine with either?

Many thanks

The difference lies in their tuner as far as I know

The Dreambox 500 Si has an Alps Tuner, but all 500S are Si, because they comes all with the Alps tuner since one year.

The Si also comes with a better power supply unit (2A switching) and a more functional better looking remote control
