I have just bought a Dreambox 500s for £91.98 I am totally new to Dreamboxes so what do I need to do and need to have when it arrives??

I have a PC connected to a BT Homehub via wireless USB as the homehub is connected to the phone socket in a different room in the house

I also have an old PC thats not in use at the moment cos I just had a new PC built up for me last year..

other receivers I have;
Technomate TM-1000D
Comag Porty II
Prima by Pace Analogue Satellite receiver with cardslot
Thomson SKY Digibox - (using a subscribed SKY viewing card but just basic channels - no Movies or Sports channels)
Amstrad SKY Digibox - (no SKY viewing card)
Grundig SKY Digibox - (expired/unsubscribed SKY viewing card)

also have an old analogue SKY viewing card

A quick overview is:

1. Use DreamUP to install a new image e.g. Gemini
2. Setup the communcation page
3. Connect it your network/PC
4. Install emus and keys
5. If you connect it to a PC, mount a drive on your PC and add a record button to your remote.

And read The Guide (several times). Trial and error ;)
