I have recently purchased a DM500S. I have a mini dish but no current subscription as I thought that I would be able to connect the Dreambox and access encrypted channels. IS this possible from just using the box and the dish and can this be done with codes etc or do I need a card.

Welcome to the forum.

You need to read The Guide and also read old posts in the Dreambox section to get a feel for what can and can't be done, and how to do it.

When you say sky uk no does this mean that I cannt access any sky uk channels. Could I pull a signal from another satellite and pick up movies and sports. Those are the main channels I need. Where can I get a list of the channels that I can pick up from other satellites like the link I have below.

And do I need a current subscription to pull any o these channels in or can I have no subscription and still pull channels in from another sat.

You can access any of the free channels, and the pay channels with a valid subsciption card. You CANNOT unlock the Sky pay channels and watch them for free.
