Other than the hardisk & display, are there any significant differences between the 5620 and the 7000? I've seen the 5620 on a german site for 189euros and I'm very tempted to go for this rather than another pc card.
Rolf how much was shipping? Also when you input your address, I only see space for street name, postcode and town (ort?) My address follows the form: street, village, town... where would be best to put the village name? I guess it won't really matter, but I get sick of having packages delivered to the wrong address
The flash memory support seems very useful for testing images if no hard disk is installed. I also like the copy image to hard disk then flash from within the box to reduce flash errors ( and null modem cable usage ). I have a 120gig samsung drive just looking for a home. I think a 7000 would keep to nice and warm on cold lonely winter nights.
Now where is my german - english dictionary (babelfish) so I can understand the order page.
The surcharge for paying by credit card at HM Sat works out at about the same as or more than COD. I used the credit card as I didn't want to leave a pile of notes for the wife to hand over to the parcel firm! The service is efficient and the box arrived by UPS three working days later.
The Dreambox didn't come with any cables: no SCART lead, no mains lead, so buy them in advance if you need them.
Rather than adding a hard disk later, it might be worth going the whole hog and buying the Dreambox with the hard disk already installed as you are sure the drive will be compatible.
