There's a link in The Guide to a site called klona's that runs you from start to finish.

How far have you gone in setting it up? Are you motorised? Is it connected to the dish? Do you have a null modem cable? Have you downloaded DreamUP? Do you have a PC on a network?

Help us to help you.

Quick guide:

1. Connect Dreambox to a PC or laptop using a null modem cable. Use DreamUP to flash the latest Gemini image.
2. Connect your Dreambox to your network with a CAT 5 cable. Set up the communication page.
3. Find and store satellite positions. Scan satellites.
4. Watch FTA TV

That's the initial target; how far have you got? What have you tried?

Connect your dream to the network (ethernet cat 5 cable) the you should be able to download an emu using the dream, (say mgcamd) then all you need is keys, they may be downloaded with the dream also, but it may pay to visit another site to get keys and install them with ftp (pc > dream). You will need DCC software to ftp.

Install CCcam and put your card in the slot.

Service not found means either the channel has gone, you're out of range or you've scanned the wrong satellite. Try rescanning the satellite.

Update your profile with your dish information, what size it is, whether it is motorised or static and what satellites you can receive. Then we can help a little more with what you are likely to be able to clear.

Also a more regional location than UK will be helpful. :)

You dont :D

You cant get Sky UK for free - you need a valid subs card - or be a member of a card share ring - no asking for c/s's and no advertising of them on this forum.

Hi
You need to spend a bit more time reading in the forum, you will find people here are mos helpful-but won't spoonfeed you information that is already been talked about a million times.

Regarding your problem: Load up the whole satan keybundle, use an FTP prog to insert it into your var/temp (i think it is this one in the dm500) and use the blue button for manual install.
After that you should be seeing everything that can bee seen - but if you are pointing at 28 east there is nothing for you there, all the sky and setanta is secure.
If you want to watch stuff point your dish at 19 east, or 30 west.

you ned to use the blue button on the remote and then choose adons, download and install , manual install.
This is if you ftp'd the bundle into the var/temp directory of course
