Is there an idiot guide for db500s. As these do not use usb or h/d. So far I can load an image, but don't understand how to configure/load emus.I have ftp program but still cannot make them work.

Sorry to be a pain, but at present feel like giving up.....

Thanks

Storm

Just ask your question, there are many members here with dm500 who will help you. In any case most advice in our ideot's guide are generally applicable. :)

Regards, pcd.

HI. Some people have worked hard to create a n excellent guide. Thanks to those concerned.

I have breifly looked at it and have come up with a few questions.

1) In section 8, working with DCC it says that ensure that captilization is correct. Does this mean change attributes tov 755.

2) Is it better to use official image DM 1.6 or Gemini 210 DM500.

Many thanks Storm.

Many people on this site with dreamboxes use Gemini. Without looking at (8), yes you need to chmod some file permissions to 755- you can do it with most FTP programs ie Cute FTP or WS FTP Pro.

There's no problem in asking questions but it helps to read the Idiot Guides a few times first in case your questions have been covered.

Happy Dreaming!

The official images don't have a lot of features that are available with the modified ones. Gemini is indeed one of the best ones to have, but play around with them. This is what is so nice about the Dreambox. Get an image, set it up. When everything is working, back it up using the Wizzard. Then if you tried something else and you want to go back, no problem. Only takes a minute and a half.

Regarding the Guide: Please remember that some threads were written some time ago, especially some posts that relate to certain cams and keys might not be up to date as it constantly changes. Also, most of the stuff there relates to 5600 / 7000, I am not completely aware of all the differences between the boxes. But it's a start.
