I've got a dreambox 7000 and technomate 1500 ci+ and have just been given an external device that should allow me to watch satellite tv on my pc.
My system is motorised and works 100%

My question is can I just run a cable from the output of the Technomate to this dvbworld box (it's new from China and can't find any info anywhere)

It has a connection for the lnb cable and another the same labeled nc
What the heck does nc stand for?

It comes with viewing software but I have downloaded progdvb

Any help in getting this thing setup would be much appreciated.
Sorry about the terrible images I really do need a new camera.

My 500s is connected to my PC using a CAT5 cable. Using Gemini Manager I can watch TV on my PC, so why would you need the extra box? ;)

Is that extra port USB?

I can stream off the Dreambox using Videolan but was given this kit and thought I'd try it out

I'm only to aware of what the kit I have at present can do but want to experiment further.

Have you tried connecting it as you suggest? Does it connect to PC via the USB- or is it firewire?
