Hi newbie here,
Have read many posts about networking Dreambox and cams etc but still having problems.
I connect to internet using my mobile phone and connect to DB using a crossover ethernet cable. I can transfer files between PC and DB but not connect DB to internet.
I have downloaded and installed Gemini 4.3.1 and am trying to install cccam 2.0.8. when I press the blue button or goto blue panel the DB just seems to reset (black screen then restarts).
Any idea if I can manually put the files from cccam in the relevent files, if so which ones where?
Many thanks for your help.
Damon

Welcome to the forum :)

If you download the CCcam as .tar file, FTP it complete (do not unzip or unrar it) into /tmp and do a manual install from the Blue Panel.

But if your Dreambox crashes when you open the Blue Panel I suggest you reflash your box (is it a genuine Dreambox?).

The file I downloaded was a zip file. I will look around for a.tar file, or can I just change the extension?
Can I just drag and drop the file using Windows explorer or do I need to use a special ftp program?

You can use Internet Explorer or Firefox to FTP files to your Dreambox.

A .zip won't work- you will have to unzip it and install the individual files manually.

You can download a CCcam 2.0.8 .tar file from here: _http://rapidshare.com/files/109896311/e1-CCcam_2.0.8_080227.tar.gz.html

No.
Which extension did you have after unzipping the *.zip file?
You should leave as *.tar something, upload it to /tmp and from the blue button do a manual install and the box will do the rest.

It isn't a winrar file but it shows up as one because it has a file extension associated with winrar. FTP the complete file to /tmp as per post #2
