I didn't know the DreamBox (latest model 7025) could handle either DVB-S2 or MPEG 4. I read somewhere that there was a new 8000 model in the works, which would be HD, but I thought that model was not due until sometime late 2007 (or even 2008)?
BTW, it's an aperture grille (Trinitron or Diamontron), isn't it? (I have both and I can I go as high as 2048 x 1536 (@ 60 Hz) on the Trinitron, although I blame the poor refresh rate on my middle-end graphics card, I know the Trinitron can refresh higher than that on its max resolution ...)
@Hitchcock - any chance you could read all the entry's before posting next time - I asked the same question about DVB-S. We don't need to double the Q's.;)
The issue of DVB-S and MPEG4 is causing some confusion with legacy kit owners (as it is me and I don't have the kit:mad: ).
So, for me to understand, rolf - could you possibly explain how that works (in layman's terms). Does the dreambox have a special o/p and how are you decoding MPEG4 on a MPEG2 spec'd piece of kit - or have you a Dreambox 7020/7025? Have you tested with DVB-S HD @ 19.2°?
My god, im going to explode into a panic. No i'm not.
With a PCI card I can follow (like in the other thread with the SkyStar PCI card). Stand alone stuff - I can only read the specs and as you have previously said - there is precious little MPEG4 kit around.
