Can anyone please point me in the right direction to find out how to install and configue newcamd from scratch. I am not sure which is the best image for 500s. But have been told that Gemini is good.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Storm.

The Gemini is very convenient for downloading. If you have internet connection to the db, you can download directly using the blue button. Or you can download to pc and ftp to the db. Or you can install gemini manager in your pc and that will do the complete job.

Regards.

I second that.

Get Gemini and connect the DB to your PC with a serial cable to flash it (get a copy of Dream Up + Dreambox Edit for later). All the details are in the Idiot Guide- you MUST read this. Then read it twice more ;)

You install the cams from an on-screen menu.

You update the keys using your PC (see the links section for sources).

When you get stuck ask again here, otherwise you'll go mad.

Dreamboxes are a source of constant "fun"! e.g. recording to PC harddrive, putting your plugins on your PC harddrive... It's worth installing IHAD Manager on your PC as well.

Hi

Did you read the idiot guide yet? Read it and some of the other stickies first. REally, there isn't a two sentence answer that will clear all problems for you I'm afraid. You are going to have to do some reading.

Also, if you want us to help you need to be a bit more specific about wht your problem is.

I don't mean to be rude but if you write you post in English and not shorthand then more people may try to help you. I for one can't be bothered trying to understand what you are asking, sorry.

This is an old thread and it did not really needed to be resurrected :-doh!. Anybody looking for basic information should read the Idiot Guide. Anything that is not there can either be found in other threads or post new questions. Thanks & thread closed :)
