Hi Both,

Very strange for a new box!!!
It sounds like it needs the 7020 equivalent of DreamUp and a Null-Modem cable to get a good image into it.

Or, preferably, return to shop! (so long as it's not too far away!).
Especially as I have seen posts saying these boxes were un-crashable!!!


73 & good luck.

Just for your information, my dreambox doesn't boot anymore (same blank yellow screen) unless I remove the network cable before boot and insert it later on when it has started.

This has surely nothing to do with your problem, but give it a try. Who knows....

Well, there are indeed two options: Take it back to the shop, or put in a new image with a null modem cable.
If you were to try to sort it , try to upload an original official image for this box with a null modem cable. If this does not work then the box is fu*ked...
