Hi everyone, im relatively new to the satellites scene, I started out with a PC card and im now looking for something a bit better. Im thinking of buying the DM800 but its a lot of money to fork out, I was just wondering is there where I can go to read about setup/configuration. Also are there any forums with user accounts of it. There doesn't seem to be anything here :confused

Does anyone have any opinions on the box?

Cheers Andy

There isn't much about the 800, as not many people have them, not sure I'd want to make the jump yet.

In case you didn't know the DM800 is dreams first HD receiver. It has just hit the market literally in the last week or 2. If I was you I'd wait a few weeks for it to settle. I can see you're near me somewhere, I'll be waiting until my favourite retailer has them in stock.

Gemini Project have released a GP2 image for it , and looking at the basic spec of the machine, its more powerful than the DM7025's so the GP2 image should be fully loaded with features. Its just a case of getting a proven image with a small range of cam emulators available. CCcam will be essential for most and I'm not sure yet if 2.09 is capable of running HD cards. I'll keep a close eye on things and buy when Mark has em in stock.

Ah ok so it looks like a waiting game then. I'll have to hang until support grows.

Thanks anyway
Andy

The Latest Pli Suite contains support for the 800

UPnP mediaserver / client plugins
- IDE/SCSI harddisk manager
- DVD player plugin
- Complete piconsets
- Screen position adjust plugin (DM7025 only)


Details of what's added and fixed since the initial 'December 2007' and 'January 2008' PLi® Iolite release


Enigma2:
- Enigma2 repository May 16th 2008
- PLi® repository May 16th 2008
- 20080430 drivers for DM7025
- 20080515 drivers for DM800
- Some CryptoInfo convertor types and functionality added
- ScanSetup:
* Cable transponder 'blind'-scan: make sure we don't miss transponders when we receive incomplete lines in our dataAvail callback
* Default cable scan 'steps' instead of 'bands', 'bands' doesn't find all transponders on Dutch Cablenetwork
- Don't create a 'largefile' ext3 fs on a small (<=4G:cool: device, that wouldn't allow us to e.g. install a lot of picons on a relatively small CF
- Added picon install location selection screen
- Only allow to install picons on fileystems which support symlinks
- Always allow picons to be installed on HDD, with the new selection screen it's your own responsibility
- Rewrote harddisk manager, support scsi and ide devices
- Show correct harddisk capacity
- MediaPlayer:
* Support ':' in paths
* Use an absolute path when a playlist entry starts with 'http://'
- RecordTimer (and parseEvent): fallback to the extended description, when an event doesn't have a short description
- Join short/extended description, when the short description is so long that it looks like a situation where short and extended contain parts of a single full description


EPG
- Fill Now/Next with EPGcache, untill EIT arrives
- Implemented Now/Next refreshtimer, started when the EIT reader stops with an error
(EPGcache now/next will be used instead)
- Implemented context menu for eventview (open with 'menu' or 'info' key while in eventview window)
* IMDB plugin installs itself into this menu


Enigma2 Plugins:
- PPanels: avoid BSOD when 'pipe' fails (it often fails with errno 12, 'Cannot allocate memory')
- Remotecontrol channel config plugin
- LipSync plugin: store audio delay as Enigma2 config values, set audio delay at startup, no longer depend on /etc/init.d/bootup to copy the values at bootup
- RSS reader: fix some escaped characters in the RSS data
- New RSS Reader feeds
- MountManager plugin:
* Do network mounts when Enigma2 starts, no longer depend on /etc/init.d/bootup to perform the mounts
- enigma2 plugins 20080512 (including dvdplayer)
- opencam 2.0.13
- mgcamd 1.29
- CCcam 2.08
- rqcamd 0.74
- scam 3.29


UPnP Plugins:
- UShare mediaserver
- djmount mediaclient


Skins Enigma2:
- All Global provider picons for Radio and TV per Satellite added
- Dutch TVHome picons added (thx to Xilorp)
- 'CryptoInfo' convertor added.
- Torkoise Skin added:
* updates by mimi74
- Nemesis.BlackBox skin:
* 'DecodeInfo' as example for CryptInfo converter usage added
- Rewrote Picon renderer, some speedups, check /picon/, check if /media/hdd/picon/ exists at startup, add that path to the search list only if it exists
- Nemesis Chromeline Skin added (PLi modded)
- Glassline Skin added (PLi modded)


Languages:
- Several languages updated


Other:
- Global satellites.xml May 11th 2008
- Scce symlink added

...And many low level changes, fixes and updates.

That looks very interesting, does anyone know if when you order the DM800 does it come with a power supply? When I try to order on the dreamboxshop website it automatically adds a power supply at £19.00?

Thanks Andy
