Hi,

I haven't used my dreambox for a year and I got it out to use last night. The display lights up, but nothing displays and I get a blank (black) screen as output. Anybody got any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

You could try re-flashing an updated image.

See the instructions in the guide - use a null modem cable and PC.

Yes I think its dead too, but do as Gameboy says and it will spring back to life.

Sorry I should have said, When I run dreamup on my PC, it doesn't see the Dreambox at all. I've also tried pinging the box via ethernet but no joy.

I'm thinking I'll have to try JTAG programming, but I haven't looked at what's involved yet.

Thanks for the replies

Regards

Mark
