DMM now starts shipping the new box. Will there be an image for it from PLi?
DMM states: "...With the DM7020 HD, Dream will be introducing a new licence for the use of the Einigma2 operating system, developed by Dream..." (read here). What does it mean? Will it affect other "imagemakers" (such as PLi for example) in a negative way?

best regards,

What is Einigma2?

As far I can see very soon new commits on git.opendreambox.org for E2 are only allowed to run on DMM boxes... most likely that is the reason why we do not see many commits there as they already keep all their improvements for themselves form beginning May this year....

DMM starts the war against the VU and the ET boxes...

DM7020 HD features new Enigma2 licence

DM7020 HD available 21.10.2011

Anonymous reporting of pirate copies via website
Dream Multimedia is expanding its product portfolio in the shape of the new DM7020 HD, available in the trade as of 21 October. With the DM7020 HD, Dream will be introducing a new licence for the use of the Einigma2 operating system, developed by Dream. At the same time, the company will be reinforcing its activities to combat illegal Dreambox pirate copies.
The DM7020 HD features a white OLED display on the front panel, as well as a flexible tuner concept. The new Dreambox provides two slots for plug’n’play tuners. As standard, the DM7020 HD will be supplied with an HDTV enabled DVB-S2 tuner as well as with the hybrid tuner, developed by Dream, for digital cable (DVB-C) and antenna reception (DVB-T).
Users can install a commercially available 3.5 inch hard disk drive or they can connect an external storage device to one of the three USB 2.0 interfaces provided, converting the Dreambox into a fully functional hard disk drive recorder (PVR).
As a result of this feature, the DM7020 HD can be used as a home server, distributing videos, music or pictures to any device anywhere in the home. To this end, the Dreambox features a 10/100 Mbit Ethernet interface. A WLAN stick is supplied to enable wireless connections in the home network. „No matter whether you are using television or the Internet as a source, the hybrid media world becomes reality with the DM7020 HD“, says Dream spokesperson Alpaslan Karasu.
The new licence for the utilization of Enigma2 comes into effect with the launch of the DM7020 HD. As before, private use will continue to be possible without any restrictions, this is specifically what Dream Multimedia is trying to achieve. As the owner of the rights in Enigma2, Dream will be significantly curtailing the use of the system by competitors in the market with immediate effect.
In addition, illegal copies of Dreamboxes can now be reported anonymously. Anybody who comes across Dreambox clones in shops or online shops can submit relevant information to Dream at www.dream-multimedia-tv.de/en/report-illegal-dreambox. „We want to ensure traders do not defraud consumers by offering low-quality pirate copies of Dreamboxes“, explains Karasu.

I think there is a significant difference between the German and the English version of this message.

German: "Als Rechteinhaber von Enigma2 schränkt Dream aber die kommerzielle Nutzung durch Marktwettbewerber ab sofort deutlich ein."

English: "As the owner of the rights in Enigma2, Dream will be significantly curtailing the use of the system by competitors in the market with immediate effect.

The very important word "commercial" is missing in the English version

everybody's talking about this new license, but nobody /?/ has seen it so far,
seems it's a top secret, for whatever reason :P
//knowing dmm you can expect something really 'strange' with wide range of possible over-interpretations (in favor of the rights owner of course ;))
we'll see...

Lets just wait until Dream actually releases something.

OpenPLi will remain opensource and freely available for everyone to use or develop.
