Folks, been using a 7020 for about a month now and all is working fine. Trouble is I have let the wife loose on it and she is having trouble selecting the channels she wants. Some channel numbers have 4 digits and the system will only take 3 so is there a way of setting up favourites etc to make it easy for her. I am familiar with using the satellites.xml file with Dreamedit if that's any use.

Use a channel setting like captains, he has a very easy list to use, the mrs and kids have no problems navagating with his channel settings.

Use the Dreamboxedit program to set up folders with your favourite channels. You can also use the program to back up after you have scanned a sat.
See the Idiot Guide and other threads for details.

Yes, dreamedit will do it for You.

Just download the sats from the dreambox, then U can edit, sort and make many folders for the family.

When U are done just upload Your new settings to the box and then it is there, under the blue button.


Latest version, just Google dreamedit !

I was in the same boat m8, i was able to find and watch what I wanted, so where my litle uns but it was all gobbledegook to the Mrs. But she is up n running too now since i found the PET 123 Channel settings. These are all in english and has all the main Sky UK Groupings. ie Music, Sport Movies, Kids etc sub grouped. If you put a Pli image on your box it can be downloaded direct to the box from the blue button. Select software management-Downloads-Channel Settings-PET123-Pet 123 Rotating(latest). If you do not want to put the PLi image just use Dreambox Edit to put it on after downloading it to your pc.
