Dream Multimedia’s Dreambox Receiver

By | May 22, 2023

The Dreambox 500 is the smallest receiver that was made back in 2005-2006 but have now been discontinued due to the huge amount of Chinese dreambox clones available on the market. DM500 is also the most popular dreambox today. The Dreambox 500 runs on open source software found on various CVS site and compiling an image is fairly easy, the hard part is the programming of extra panels such as the blue button on Gemini Images. Fake dreamboxs are flooding the satellite tv market and you have to be careful when purchasing a dreambox online in the event it could be a fake! Make sure you check it it has the new hologram.

The Second most popular dreambox is the DM800 HD, which is of course Dream Multimedia’s first High Definition receiver on the market and currently the best seller “original” receiver from Dream. A few months after its release it was stormed with bad reviews from people saying problems such as “overheating” or “The graphics interface keeps freezing”, all these failures made it a poor build. The Original DM800 HD costs an average of £299 in the UK, €350 in Europe and $399 in the United States. Clone DM800 HD would be have the price of Original’s.

The dreambox is an easily adaptable satellite TV, cable TV or terrestrial TV receiver which runs on open source and supported by thousands of forums throughout the world, in particular in Europe. There are custom firmware’s such as Gemini, Pli-Images, Nabilosat, Peterpan, oZooN and many more which make it possible for users to install emulators such as CCcam or OSCam to watch encrypted satellite TV by sharing keys through the internet.

Another well-liked dreambox model may be the DM8000 HD, the top of the range dreambox. The DM 8000 supports multiple High definition HD TV standards, including MPEG4/H.264. A better power supply device is actually incorporated that will finally solve all previous PSU-related difficulties for good. The USB 2 hardware port is also included as well as the regular RS232 serial port as well as Fast Ethernet interface. It appears like the front of the box may house a multi-function (ten) greeting card readers to be able to very easily load/access data, photos, mp3 etc. The Lcd display has increased in dimensions to 3,5x five.five centimetres. Open Linux system remains the operating system, however it will likely be packaged within an ‘easier to use form’.
