I mount the dreambox to the hard drive in my computer (connnected through router and wireless LAN), and then I can record movies or whatever to my hard drive. I can then play them back on the dreambox (I think you know about this).
So what i've done with your image is enter all the details in the network/mounts, and pressed the "Mount" option and I got a message "mount OK". Then I played some pre recorded movies back, and it all worked ok.
What I cannot do though at this moment is to record using CIFS. I did use the CIFS option in the mount menu, but when trying to use the timer option the CIFS isn't there.
Obviously you have not been to the IHAD thread today. I have posted the following Hints. Streaming and recording on pc from the db is now perfect using TuxvisionR. No need for cifs. Installing TuxvisionR is simple if you follow the Readme.
Download and install softcam : First select and save Common Interface in Softcam Setup to stop any running emulator.
Streaming to Dreambox : Start network streaming from VLC. Then start plugin Stream2db to see display on tv. Stream2db can handle any media that VLC can stream out. More advice in Readme, can be downloaded from here :-
Watching and recording TV on pc : While the channel is on tv, start plugin StopTVplay. The screen will go dark. Then start your streaming client software on pc. TuxvisionR is recommended, details can be found here :-
Crond :- Crond is set to start at boot. To stop crond from starting, comment out (insert # at the beginning of) the line with crond in file /var/etc/init. Cronjobs can be set by editing /var/etc/crontab. Alternative is to list the cron command in /var/etc/croncmd and then use Cronmanager.
Picons : Select Setup -> Expert Setup -> Show service logo. No need for plugin, all inside image. Some picons are available for download by cpanel. Any others, just add to folder /var/tuxbox/icon.
I just logged on here, so was not on IHAD. Actually, I prefer to stay here most of the time. I only go there once in a while to see if something is new...
Regarding the Tuxvision, I have it on the PC, and sometimes I use it to stream.
But for the recording issue: It seems to be very complicated to record the way you describe. With Gemini, Pli, and many other images all you need to do to record (and watch at the same time) is to press the Video button on the remote, and then the radio button. That's it, I am sure you are aware of this. That is usually done with Cifs.
Is there a reason why you went for that perticular method?
Not Tuxvision, I was referring to TuxvisionR. New program. All other methods like cifs do not stream to pc well enough for recording when the bitrates are high, over 2500 kbit/s or so or with some emus. The picture breaks up. You must have found this. TuxvisionR has been developed from Tuxvision to stop this problem. With StopTVplay, it gives faultless recording. No other image or method can do this for the 5620 and 500. Once TuxvisionR is installed, it is a matter of just one click.
The STRMR images are especially developed for these purposes, but if you are happy already, what can I say !
