Can someone please explain to the beginner whats the REAL difference between Dreambox 500 and 7020? I know one has HDD possibility and the other not, but besides that? Is it really worth to invest much more is HDD is not so important? Thanks for all your help.

I have DB500 setup over a LAN, seems fine to me.
The 7020 is a more refined box and has a few nice features like usb for flash
more connections. but the 500 will bring in the same channels as the 7020.

I've just been through this decision myself so I'll add my tuppence....

For me the decision was simple:
Did I want to pay double the price for what is reputedly a "more reliable" box and use images loaded on CF (of which I have a few spare cards)?

The answer was No. I have a 500 now, Gemini 2.80, card emus and it records perfectly to my HTPC. It's actually amazing what this little, video-cassette sized box can do :)
