Ok here we go again.

Please tell us a bit more what your problem is. What do you want me to tell you??
What did you download? What files did you FTP? Is your box connected to the internet? Can you download with the blue button?

Plese, give us a clue so we can help you...I am sure it is only a small problem, but you got to give it a bit more efford than just say "could any one simplify please"

Ok, if I am not wrong at this moment of time the Mary update think does not work. You got two options: Either you go and get yourself keys from somewhere else and load them using FTP, or change the image to Gemini for instance, where the key/cam upload works.

Now, I am sure there are lots of opinions, but if I was you I'd load up Gemini and NEwcamd, unless you are doing some advance stuff ther eis no need for camd3 at the moment.

LOL you are wrong - that's a first.

You can update over the Internet with the green button (Hydra Phoenix).

Make sure you have the latest control panel (it's 31-08-2005).

You now have three sets of Mary's to download (for different CAMs).

You can also update your CAMs using that option (at the bottom of the list).

Remember - update control panel then return to channel - press the green button again to get to the download menu - update and return to channel each time. You have to return to channel after each step to make sure it works.

Check they appear in Dreambox manager (delete the old ones - to make sure).

If you want, restart the box (I don't and it works)

Use the blue button to set the CAM you want and that's it.

lol that can't be true. I just don't get caught that often.

I must say I haven't played with Hydra for a while as Gemini seems to work so well...

But, I am happy you had all the info.

Any reason to use the Hydra instead of Gemini that i don't know of?

Tried a few and just like Hydra it doesn't lock often and the web updates are great. Still can't get 1 West and cannot be bothered to start again.

Not quite 30,000 views of the guide despite my ten visits a day!

What's good in Gemini?

Sitting here watching the Dreambox stream on the Mac G5 wireless while posting - screen shot attached...

Sounds like you have an internet connection problem.

To check go to Setup (the Menu key) > Expert Setup > Software Update > Internet Update.

Select that and if you don't get a list of Hydra image versions the problem lies with your Internet connection.

You will have to give more details of your setup - PC connection to net OS version.

Also in Expert Setup the Communications Setup settings would help.

Check other posts 'network' 'PC' 'Internet connection' this problem has cropped up before.

Can you see the Dreambox using an FTP programme on your PC?

If you can then it's back to the guide - download the CAMs, etc. Then FTP them to the places indicated in the guide.

The fact that your PC can contact the box using a web browser doesn't prove it can see the Internet I'm afraid.

LAN settings...

After you have updated the control panel go back to the channel - then use the green button to navigate back to downloads in that list - on the second page are the CAMs when you open that list Newcamd 6.01 should show along with lots of others. If it doesn't you don't have the latest control panel or it hasn't updated the list - restart and try again.

When you select the CAM you want it will download and update automatically - it will then appear in the list under the blue button you will have to select it by moving the item left or right from --Default -- or Common Interface.
