Hi

Strange things are happening with my wireless stream. It worked great when the PC was wired with a cross-over to the dreambox but now...

I've got a Netgear WGR614 wired to the ethernet on the dreambox and I'm trying to stream with VLC to the PC. When I try to open the stream of a scrambled station nothing happens. Works fine with FTA stations. I can watch BBC world OK but when I try it with M*ltivision nothing happens.

I've tried different cams and url addresses but it makes no difference.

Hope someone can suggest something because it beats me.

Are you using a Gemini image? If so, does it work with IHAD rather than vlc?

Thanks again mhku

I'm using Hydra phoenix image but I've now got myself a copy of Gemini for the 7020 and the mod thats with it, and I shall dreamup them tonight.

Where do I get the Cs and Ks from for this image so I can FTP them.

Regards

Thanks mhku but......

I tried to flash the Gemini image and the 7020 crashed. I've posted a new thread asking what "Flash copy failed result -5" is but I fear the worst.

I think it will be on its summer hols back in Germany for a few weeks to recover. Shall try again after the operation.

Need to find a new toy now

Try using the null modem cable to install the original image before you send it back to Germany.

I was gonna suggest the same thing. I could only get the flash to work with a null modem cable (£3 off ebay). And reread all the "How to flash" stuff in the Idiot's Guide. If you can still "speak" to it you should be ok. honest ;)

The serial one on com1 (is that the null modem) that worked before ok. And now I've tried this with the ethernet cross over cable with network switched on.

I had no trouble before flashing images with dreamup and com1 (slow but nice).

I can set up communication ok. It then uploads image, verifies the checksum and starts to flash then stops with message "flash copy failed result 5"

HELP PLEASE before I send it back

Don't do it with a cat5, it's unreliable.

Do you get error when using the serial cable?

I get the error message which either way I try. Either with just the null modem serial cable OR null modem serial and ethernet network - the results the same. The problem isn't loading the image it is flashing it in the box.

After trying dreamup7020 I've now also tried the universal dreamup. This also communicates ok but also stops during flashing with "flash error result 5" and states "dreambox unusable".

Thank you for your thoughts at this time of my sad loss. 1 week before the premiership starts !
