I've had my dreambox 500s for just on a year and , I have to admit I never quite got a grip of it , so I'm calling it quits I'm letting it go with the 1mtr at sat dish and motor the lot .
when I had my ART card all was great , but all the messing with the keys and updating, I never ever figured it out
So I conceed defeat and going back to moaning about it .

So how much is a realistic price ? I dont want to use ebay if I can , So I think someone in Liverpool or Manchester area who either wants it dropped off or pick it up .

I was using it for the friendlies (football) last week , but otherwise its totally redundant , im gutted as its got so much potential , If I dont sell it I may just attatch it to the tv in the Kitchen and watch FTA stuff (odd match music etc) its not as if its big or could get in the way :)

dude i have the same model and i was the same, when i first got it i didnt know how to update keys or nothing, i didnt know about the software cams but thanks to everybody on this forum they helped me out big time.

if i was you id hang onto that, theres stuff you can do with it which you just need abit of patience with to solve it.

If you really want to get rid of it i have a mate who is after one and he could use it but seriously it has more potential than you think, if you need help with anything then send me a pm or if you still want to sell it send me a pm.
